Bower 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Various Cameras: Canon EF, Sony Alpha or E Mount, Nikon F Mount, Pentax K Mount, Olympus 4/3, Samsung NX $229 + FS B&H Photo Video
Well for those of you who maybe missed out on the Rokinon 8mm f3.5 fisheye deal a few weeks back, here's something quite close. It's the Bower iteration of the lens for all the different mounts. Either way they're all made by Samyang in Korea so they're essentially the same with some cosmetic variations.
This is a great deal @ $229 FS over at B&H Photo Video on all the different mounts ($60 off regular price):
Nikon (2 flavors; 1 w/focus confirm chip $20 more)
Deal ends at B&H on December 24 (or presumably until sold out).
Manual focus only as all these lenses are made that way. Fun well reviewed lens, better price if you don't really want to invest all that money in an AF lens. Yes we know there are a number of choices exponentially more expensive. I would suspect if you're in the market for those higher priced lenses you probably wouldn't be considering the Bower anyway.

Some reviews and videos to amuse yourself (that fisheye effect is wild on videos)...most links below apply to the Rokinon version of the lens but as mentioned previously it's basically one and the same optically:
