Cool Lens, But Do You Want the Circle?

  • Excerpt: I go back and forth on this lens. On one hand, it's super cool and I love getting in 180 degrees. On the other hand, I find the circle look a bit corny. I went back and forth on whether to keep this lens and in the end opted for the 15mm fixed Sigman at 2.8. Plus, the lens cap is terrible!
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Flimsy lens cap

Great Lens - But Lens Cap is GARBAGE

  • Excerpt: Amazing fisheye lens. Very sharp for my panorama business. I gave it a 3 because of the stupid lens cap which is pure garbage, it's even worst than the cap on my old 15 mm f 2.8 Fish eye (which I had to sell sadly in order to afford this one).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Great lens, lousy cap

  • Excerpt: This fish eye lens requires experience to use it right. You have to be careful about the horizon else the effects can be quite warped. On a Canon 5D mark iii, the usable range is 14 or 15 mm with the hood on. Below that focal length, the hood can be seen.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Falling Cap Design Flaw

Excellent except for very awful lens cov

  • Excerpt: I have a closet full of L lenses. I would rate most of them a five and none lower than a four. Why am I rating this wonderful lens a three. A terrible, very terrible, lens cover. It will not stay on.Since I am using this lens on a full size sensor, I have taped the lens cap to the lens hood.

Good optics

TiCobra, B&H Photo
11 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Very good optics, but there is a great deal of chromatic aberration, especially at 8 mm, around the edge of the image area, which is obviously due to the circular image against the black edges.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
