I recently had a chance to do a comparative test of these Nikons with the DX and FX Nikon fisheyes (where appropriate) to see how they compare in IQ from 100-3200 ISO. I wrote up the results:
My overall conclusions:
- While the D300-10.5mm pairing evenly matches lens quality with the demands of the sensor, the D7000-10.5mm and D800-10.5mm pairings do not, with the 10.5mm lens proving too soft along the edges.
- The D800-16mm pairing offers the highest resolving power. Even when downsampled to match the D4′s output, the D800 maintains an edge.
- The D4-16mm pairing offers the best low-light versatility, holding on to tonal gradations longer as ISO increases.
