Not bad!

  • Summary: Awesome fisheye lens. Surprisingly sharp if stopped down a bit. Just be aware that this lens is completely manual, there is no mechanical or electronic coupling to the camera body. I really like that the lens can focus as close as .25 inch.

My new favorite lens. Back in the days of Nikon coolpix ...

  • Summary: My new favorite lens. Back in the days of Nikon coolpix 950 and 990, I had a screw on fisheye lens. Terrible chromatic aberration, but I didn't care. I could get within a quarter inch of the subject and still get focus. Now I can get this once again with my SLR. Automatic focus would sure be nice.

fantastic lens

  • Excerpt: I love a fixed focal length. Ansel Adams proclaimed that it's where you stand. NO zooming all the place. Forces you to be creative. and I paired it with motorized head,Cam Ranger
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Everything I expected and more. Super fun lens. Easy to use. Easy to learn. Hold the camera body well away from your body to keep from getting your feet in the frame!

APS-Circular Fisheye

Mark P., Amazon
31 March 2015
  • Summary: Very interesting lens. Does exactly what I needed it to do. Only complaint is that the F Stop ring is a little "loose". Would be nicer if the stop clicks were a bit firmer. Photos are a bit soft but I expected that from such a reasonably priced lens. I'd definitely recommend it

Fun lens to use, easy to learn with

Frankie Victoria, Amazon
27 March 2015
  • Summary: Really fun to use! I have a Nikon D5100 and it works fine on Manual mode. Since it is a manual lens, it took some playing around to get used to but it's actually very easy to get nice pictures. The focus and aperture rings do move with light touches... but it's not a big of a deal for me.

exactly as advertised on DSLR

whispersiren, B&H Photo
26 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This Lensbaby fisheye does exactly as advertised: creates a lovely circular image on DSLR cameras. Also tried it on converter on my micro four thirds Olympus E-m5 camera and it crops the image to lose the top and bottom of the circle, but still creates a nice wide image.
