Excerpt: I used the Rokinon Fisheye on my Canon Rebel T3i and its a perfect lens! So crisp and clear with great manual focus and fstop. I recommend this lens to anyone with a DSLR. However if you like a ring around your screen when filming with a fisheye I don't recommend this. But I love the fullscreen fisheye, its amazing! 5 stars!<br /><br />And the price was amazing!
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Professional Quality
Excerpt: I had it for about two weeks and so far is great. It looks and feels expensive.<br />I am pleased with image quality.<br />First I thought I would use it only for video however It suites very well for landscape and architectural photography, which is something I was not thinking to do until I got this lens.<br />So far I love it. Hope it will last really long.
Summary: This lens replaces completely the panorama function of the camera. It has an incredible angle of 180°! You can take amazing landscape pictures and you can take pictures of a whole room, from the very right to very left side. The manual focus and ISO doesn't bothers me. I think that this is a really good fisheye/ulta-wide-angle lens for that price. This is one of the only 8mm lenses I've found, there are not many, but I really don't regret that I bought it.
Excerpt: I read a lot of good reviews and they seemed to be too good to be true, then I took the risk and ordered this lens to find out that everything what was said was true. <br /><br />If you used to shoot by the time years ago, you will remember the old times as this lens is completely manual, no auto focus, no auto diaphragm. Set the maximum aperture, focus, set the diaphragm and press the shutter. If you use f8 or more, everything becomes in focus, so, who need auto-focus?.
Pros: Consistent Output, TACK SHARP, Very Affordable
Excerpt: Nice product, good quality, you can consider it a bargain. really sharp.<br />reaaly simply to operate in manual focus, cause everything it's on focus! ever!<br />i use it in a canon 6d, a full frame, and was dissapointing that it NOT produce a full circular image as i expected. thats why i leave 3 stars and no 5.
Excerpt: I usually rent the Canon 8-15mm fisheye but needed to buy my own, this was on sale so thought I'd give it a try. I mostly use it for video & filming action sports. So far it works great, footage quality is good...takes a min to get used to the aperture ring as the camera (in my case 60D) doesn't read it electronically. My only complaint is it has a very soft focus, it does not have sharp detail like the Canon/higher end lenses.
