One of the upcoming Nikon lenses is rumored to be an ultra wide angle or a fisheye lens

One of the upcoming five Nikkor lenses this year is rumored to be a full frame ultra wide angle or a fisheye lens, probably something similar to the Canon 11-24mm f/4 or Canon 8-15mm f/4. Update – the new lens could also be a competitor for the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 (APS-C lens).
