Nikon D3 with 10.5mm f/2.8 DX Nikkor

The movie Fargo has a hilarious scene in which involves a certain disabled person and his pants. I’ve got to keep that in mind when shooting the Nikon 10.5mm DX (2/3 frame) on the full-frame Nikon D3, which can easily record whether or not...well, you get the picture! Not wishing to incriminate myself, I’ll just show this picture instead.

Nikon D3 with 10.5mm f/2.8 DX (full frame)

The 10.5mm DX is designed to cover a 2/3-frame sensor camera like the Nikon D200, D40/x, etc. On a full frame camera, the lens shade intrudes into the frame. Bjorn Rorslett ( reports having sawed off the lens shade and finding that the resulting (unsaleable) lens can actually see behind itself (about 200°). Now where’s that hacksaw...!

So—you can either spend US$5000 or so on a superb (but huge and heavy) 7.45mm fisheye from Coastal Optics (see Nov 8 entry), or you can get a diminutive Nikon 10.5/2.8 DX and saw off the lens shade for a most-of-the-frame image.
