Excerpt: As wedding photographers, we were looking for a fisheye to add to our gear bag. Just used this at a wedding and it was exactly what we needed to bring a different perspective to to the reception part of the evening. Don't skimp on your glass and go for this lens!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm a volunteer charity event photographer and have had way to many times where I cannot get what I want in one shot because the sheer number of people coupled by the fact that I can't back up far enough. I've already used the lens at three recent events for about 10% of my shots.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a lens that I always have in my bag because I never really know when I might need the extreme angle of view. This lens is really something that I utilize for landscapes mostly, but anytime the story may require this type of look, I pull it out and give it a try.
Excerpt: Super crisp Beautiful wide coverage Fast focusing The lens cap fits loosely, so you may have to improvise a way to securely keep it on the lens. I've lost my lens cap for this lens and had to order a replacement after owning it for less than a week.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: This is a great wide-angle lens, with approximately 180 degrees capture on the horizontal. So far I am very well pleased with it. Lightweight, and sturdy build. Distortion nothing that cannot be corrected in Lightroom. Clarity appears to be very good corner to corner.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Now that I have a full-frame sensor camera (Nikon D610), I needed to upgrade my DX fisheye lens. I took side-by-side shots with each version, using my D610, and the improvement realized by using the new, FX version, was noticible.
Excerpt: Loved it from the first shot! Bumped into a guy with a D800 when I was eating lunch last week. Asked him if he wanted to try it. He said sure so we exchanged lenses for a few minutes. He though it was cool too.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
