Excerpt: First of all, this lens doesnt zoom, thus you would have to move either the camera or the object, i bought it because it was the cheapest one of all. Also you would have to work with manual adjustment which is hard. I personally would rather pay more money instead of just gettin this one
Excerpt: - I use for recreational purposes, I really like the photography and with this lens I'm enjoying a lot more! - The lens quality is very good! I could say excelent! - The body and finish is very good.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Summary: For my Nikon D3200 works perfect all in (M)anual mode, (camera and lens) you don't need autofocus trust me, the only thing not working is the flash but you dont' need it trust me too Lol.... the images are great at nights.
Excerpt: This lens is pretty cheap but it sure doesn't feel like it. It has some heft to it but I won't hold that against it. I thought the lack of auto-focus would be an issue, but at this focal length it really doesn't matter. Most of the time I can just set it to infinity and shoot away.
Summary: This is a great lens for the money. They could charge more and it would still be a good buy. It's very sharp edge to edge, and if you use a PS plug-in like Fisheye Hemi (which straightens the verticals), you end up with an ultra wide angle for not much cash.
Summary: Photography is my very expensive hobby so I'm always looking for lenses to add that are not going to break the bank, this is an excellent lens for the price, and satisfied my desire for an ultra wide angle.
