Hi all,


Wetpixel has purchased the new Nikon 8-15mm lens in order to review it.


It arrived today!

Many thanks to Dale Photographic for moving heaven and earth to get one very early for us.

In terms of size, it is slightly longer than the Tokina 10-17mm. Of course, this does not necessarily reflect the len's nodal point, so actual dome and extension lengths still need to be experimented with.

I shot some images of it on the D500 and D810.

For FOV comparison purposes, here are two with the D500 and Tokina 10-17mm:

First impressions of the lens would suggest that build quality is similar to that of the Canon EF 8-15mm F/4L lens. Optical quality has not been tested yet.


I am going to try and rig a zoom ring for it now and shoot it tomorrow behind a dome....


Any specific queries, please fire away



How to create great images...

31 May 2017 - 02:27 AM

Hi all,


I have just posted an article on the Wetpixel front page containing some of my opinions about what constitutes great imagery.




Like all opinions, my thoughts should be open for debate! I would very much welcome feedback and other's thoughts on the subject.


Thank you
