Great Creative Lens

  • Summary: Even at minimum focus distance from subject, the subject looks like it's miles away from you; then you look away from the viewfinder and realise you're only about 30cm from the subject.With 180° FOV, watch out for your feet keep appearing in the shot!

19 August 2013
  • Summary: This is an awesome lens for the price. On an APS-c sensor it fills the field but gives a fish eye look. On a full frame it just gives a central circle of view.
