What would happen if you used an old Nikkor 8mm fisheye on a D200?
I know you would need to do the mirror lockup, but:
Would it meter?
What would the image be?

(My guess was that the original round image on the 35mm negative would be truncated top and bottom by the smaller sensor area in the digital. If this is true, there should still be 180 degree coverage left to right, but something less than that in the vertical.)

Thanks for the input,
