A Lens for Creative Fun
My decision to purchase this lens was the intention to just have fun with it. The images from a fisheye are so playful to begin with that its perspective isn't going to be as we see things normally. The 10.5mm f/2.8G has a minimum focus distance of just over an inch that I can get so close to my subject and let the horizon curve at the distance. The fast aperture is nice using available light when the sun is just beyond the horizon. Images comes out clear and sharp. The lens itself is small and light so is not tiring to use all day.
I've had the 10.5mm f/2.8G a couple of years now and it has become more than what I expected to use it for. I used it during my travels at landmarks and was able to capture huge structures into frame while I was directly in front of one instead of at a far away distance. It was helpful covering corporate events to show the large attendance. My favorite though will have to be the fun using it to photograph my Pomeranian during our travels and adventure.
I hope you have room in your camera bag for the 10.5mm f/2.8G to explore your creative possibilities and express your passion.

Great almost fisheye...
On a DX body minimal edge fall off, not the super wide angles of years ago however not the price of them. Anyone that needs the maximum wide angle for a DX body this is the lens. Nikon Qualify. I have used only Nikon product since 1964 and am a retired Medical Photographer.

Stadium Lens Requirement
Below is a photo I took with the Nikon 10.5mm "fisheye" lens in the press box of the home of the Boston Red Sox--Fenway Park. This lens has amazing resolution and infinite depth of field, even at large apertures. The railing near my feet and the center field scoreboard are equally in focus. This image was taken with a Nikon D200 camera body at a shutter speed of 1/125 of a second (hand held), an aperture of f/4, an ISO of 400, Auto White Balance, and Center Weighted Metering.
