Loose on mount, soft picture, but nice lens overall.

Summary: Wasn't a perfect fit for my camera, and by that, I mean it was a little loose on the mount, but other than that, it is a really sturdy lens. Very soft picture at f3.5. The camera I am using is a Sony a57
Summary: The lens has exact same optics as the Samyang/Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye . The optics is manufactured for all of these by Samyang Korea. In fact even this lens in 8mm the rating of 6.5mm is just arbitrary sales/marketing differentiator.
Summary: Pros: Definitely a wide angle Sits snug against camera body with zero wiggle room Cons: Lens tulip hood shows up on photos. Photos all need to be bumped up in exposure. Aperture diaphragm does not adjust correctly so some blades will be more open than others.
Summary: If it fits your camera you should add one to your collection. Is it auto focus? Nope. Doesn't need to be. Is it Auto aperture? Nope. Not for 150 bucks. It is one crazy wide, pretty darn sharp, cheap chunk of glass. Check out the user group on Flickr for a bunch of great samples.
Summary: This lens is not a full frame lens. I bought for my D3 with the expectation that it would be full frame. Please remove the full frame models from the compatibility list. I had it mailed to my work and didn't keep the box when I carried it home otherwise I would return it.

Summary: False advertisement - this lens is designed for APS-C format only, not full framed as advertised in the description. It's not just a little vignetting in the corners - it's more like a thick black frame (the image space is in an odd retangular shape, off-centered).
Summary: Good stills for the price, but can't imagine shooting action or video with this lens on m43. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I get blurry images unless focus is at minimum (0.3m) and aperture us narrower than F8.
Summary: Could not be happier with this lens! Great quality product, delivers sharp clear images. For the Price IT CANT BE BEAT!!!! I'm shooting with it on my D3200. Its heavier then my Nikon lenses but this isn't an everyday lens anyway so I don't mind.
