I bought the Canon 15mm. I'm not sure if Nikon makes one. I know Sigma makes one for Nikon mounts. The only issue is that it won't be as "fishy" on your D80 crop body (APS-C sensor) as it is on my full-frame 5D.

It was really cool to be driving down Lincoln Ave near Addison and seeing the skyline and seeing a faint view of a helicopter floating over Trump and seeing a spire in place. I had no idea they were going to try today. Awesome sight.

I watched a doco about this on discovery! it looks great! I wish auckland had something like this. The programme went through every aspect including how the weight of the building was distributed, the installation of the window panels (each panel taking 25 minutes to install) they would cover 1 floor in just 3 days and how it was designed etc.
Trump should be so lucky, these are very high-grade towers I would give them an A+ grade rating not just A

I posted this on the main trump thread, but here's a cool site with pics/vids from a Trump crane operator.

There were certainly privileged to some incredible views finishing off this tower.

Is this the finished product for the radio tower, or is there more outer casing still to be put on it?
