Excerpt: I use this for all my event photography. I usually don't go below 14mm and when I do is for extreme dramatic concert crowd shots. The lens is very sharp. The only thing about it is that bothers me a bit is delicate convex. I wish it could be more protected at times.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Bought this lens to challenge myself to be more creative, love the fun distorted shots! Excellent quality, not liking the poorly designed lens cap. Be very careful with this lens and give it lots of protection.
It is a specialty lens for sure but any image I've captured has had great color and sharpness

Summary: This lens is fabulous. It is a specialty lens for sure but any image I've captured has had great color and sharpness. I've used it on my 5D3 only and used in the Sequoia National Park. Know what you are getting. This lens is not an everyday lens and the cost is up there but when and if you desire to use this lens it does not fail.
Excerpt: This lens is so great. I used it last week in a club to shoot the event and I was very happy with the images. I was using f/4-f/5/6 for most of my shots. I also got some nice circular shots at 8mmm focal length. The lens comes with a good cap that protects the front element of the lens fine when not in use.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I wanted to find an ultra-wide lens for taking pictures of small rooms. The 14mm is awesome but sometimes not wide enough. Setting this 8-15mm at about 12mm then clicking the de-fish button in Photoshop gives ultra-wide.<br /><br />Not sure if my picture uploads will work so here are a couple links<br />http: //julianalee.com/homes/2014/hopkins_ave_1321/downstairs-living-room-a.jpg<br />http: //julianalee.com/homes/2014/hopkins_ave_1321/downstairs-living-room-b.jpg
Excerpt: If you are looking for a sharp ultra wife angle lens for specialty shots, then look no further. This is a great lens whether you are shooting in tight spaces, want to show a large vista, or get a little creative with the fish eye. Highly recommended!
