there are only very few candidates that come to mind!
- AF-S DX 12-24mm 4G IF-ED
I'm not interested in this, because it's only 33% wider than a standard lens/zoom.
- AF DX 10.5mm 2.8G Fisheye
This lens I own and love! Cheaper than the 12-24mm Nikkor and much more fun. Nice, bright, sharp, high contrast, but not for D40-owners! Can be straightened out with SW. See some of my photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38912116@N00/tags/fisheye/
- Sigma Objektiv AF 10-20mm 4.0-5.6 EX DC HSM
Nice design, but shame on the quality controll. Read my own story here: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=182

- Tamron Objektiv SP AF 11-18mm 4.5-5.6 Di II LD Asp IF
PQ seems ok but falls off at the edges, build qual. so so
- Tokina Objektiv AT-X 10-17mm 3.5-4.5 AF DX Fisheye
I think this is the only fisheye(1)-zoom(!). Unfortunately the PQ is visibly bad
So in the end, it turns out as (almost) always: quality has its price
