Default 10.5mm f/2.8 DX - Ultra Wide Spectaculer

This is a shot taken at the spectacular night show in Hong Kong. The 10.5mm may present a spectacular scene without stitching. Taken at f/16, 3s @ iso200. Not yet optimized for best quality, but acceptable.

Do you know if your 10.5mm Fisheye was made in Japan or Thailand? That lens is manufactured in both countries for export to the US. The Thailand lens comes with a 1-year warranty & the other with a 5-year Nikon Warranty. There's at least a $50 difference in price, too, along with different box designs & quality of craftsmanship. Check your serial number: is there a "US" or "U" in front of it (assuming you live in the US)? BTW, the Thailand Nikon plant has been operating for 12 years & will crank out 800,000 D70s this year.. Check out: http://dpmac.com/factory/index.html for an article & many pics.
