      No but maybe you could commission a coastal optics for 15k. Though 15k sounds cheap. Sacha Griffin Southern Digital Solutions LLC - Atlanta, Georgia

                  If it is this design then there are enough elements you might think for it to be sharp -- though because it is for a very small format sensor resolution would be the limiting factor I suspect -- stick it on the next-gen mirrorless subcompact it might be good

                  Thanks guys, I should have been more specific, I did find that lens, but discounted it as most probably not ready for a high iso DSLR. I would bet you would

                    I would bet you would get a much cleaner image from a F2.8 fish eye and a Nikon D7000, or D800 pushed.
