Excerpt: Did my usual research and decided this lens would be a great addition to my Kit. ..High quality build, easy to use...great fisheye effect and a super wide landscape lens...Great value and will bring anyone diversity with thier photographic efforts. ..Very pleased with this, my first Samyang lens.
Excerpt: I did some research before buying a wide angle lens. Not wanting to spend a fortune for a lens that I won't use too often, I am very pleased with the quality of this product. Best quality for the price!
Summary: Lens is quite light and great to include when travelling to get some fun perspectives. Used it for some interiors as an alternative to an ultra-wide angle and with de-fish eyeing software and results look very professional.For a bit of fun especially with camera-shy kids you can get them to pull...
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!
Summary: I've been looking to buy a fisheye lens for a long time, but could never justify the price for something that doesn't get used all the time.I'm a full time sports photographer and want to use the lens for those special shots that come along every so often.
Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: Superb value and great results - just what I was looking for. Lovely fish-eye curves and good quality pictures. I was concerned it may be too cheap, but very pleased with it so far.Used with a Canon 7D.
Summary: 1st lens came faulty -needed calibration. Sent back to the seller. Ordered from Amazon directly now and received working lens. I like it. Tried already on Canon 60D, 650D and BMCC EF. bought it mainly for BMCC EF to get the fisheye look.
