Thanks for the comments..

John, I second what Brian said and here is some info that i found on the lens..

Description - Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Autofocus Fisheye Lens
The Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Lens is targeted at Nikon DX Format digital SLR camera users who seek the unique visual effects a full-frame fisheye lens lends to landscape and other shots, to taking close-ups, or when shooting within vehicles or other tight interiors. Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G Lens excels at shooting extreme close-ups. Combining a minimum focus distance of just 3cm (1.2 in.) from the front of the Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Lens with Nikon's Close-Range Correction (CC) System ensures sharp results. The "Fisheye to Wideangle Transformation" function in the optional Nikon Capture 4 software package transforms diagonal fisheye images shot using the Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G Autofocus Fisheye Lens to ultra-wideangle photos, (by transforming the type of projection). This is an appealing new feature made possible only with digital photography and with the Nikon Total Imaging System. Optical and close-range focusing performance of Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G Lens are both optimized for Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras. An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element used in Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Lens minimizes chromatic aberration for clear, natural colors, and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening ensures a natural look to out-of-focus elements. This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings in Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G Autofocus Fisheye Lens. Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Lens operation is easy and virtually mistake-free because the aperture does not have to be set to minimum. The compact, lightweight design of Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G Lens fits comfortably in the hand. And photographers at all levels will be pleased with Nikon 10.5mm F2.8G ED-IF DX Lens outstanding cost performance.
