Excerpt: I am absolutely in love with this lens. I was a little nervous about it being strictly manual focus but I'm not having any problems whatsoever. You get a lot of lens for the price. I highly recommend it!
Excerpt: There are a lot of versions of this lens, and for some unknown reason, the sellers don't adequately describe this lens. This version has the Nikon AE chip, which means that in shutter priority it will automatically adjust the aperture. I find this a very valuable feature.
Excerpt: Manual focus, manual exposure setting. That's why it's so inexpensive. Images are pretty darn good with less edge distortion than I expected from an 8 mm. You really have to up the ISO because the lens only opens to f 3.5. Still for the price it's a handy tool to have in your kit.
Excerpt: On a full frame, it cuts off the top and bottom of the circle, but otherwise the quality is great. Its a manual focus only lens, but who cares? Set it to f/5.6-8.0 and pretty much everything is in focus if you understand hyperfocal. It gets 4 out of 5 stars because the mounting feels a little rough.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for my Canon 5D Mark iii and have enjoyed using it so far. I knew beforehand the this lens on a full frame will have a circular border surrounding the exposure. This did not stop me from purchasing this great lens.
