You will use it more than you think

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for a few special purpose opportunities and find myself taking it with me everytime I take my camera out. It provides a unique look at the world, often that world being a place you can only see through the lens. It is excellent for turning what appears an average looking shot into something unique and often stunning. It is especially good indoors where the F2.8 can really open up opportunities.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

very nice

  • Excerpt: I like it so far, but you have to love fisheyes and know how to take advantage of them. I found it nice for doing midnight panoramas and stitching them together. Lightroom will also do some corrections to make the pictures rectilinear, but you also have to keep in mind the angle at which you hold the lens is *way* more important than a longer lens. i.e., sometimes you also need to do vertical adjustments in lightroom as well.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Very happy with this purchase

  • Excerpt: I am a professional photographer full time 30yrs and bought this lens for a family wedding to play with and ended up using it for 70% of reception. It was great for the wild shots and gave a different view not normally seen with background lights of different color temp. Easy to work on a crowded dance floor. Used on my 5D mk3 had some barrel effect but make a rather dark party place look massive and bright. Very sharp for the price... I would do it again.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

FABULOUS Lens!

  • Summary: Very sharp, great contrast and color. Absolutely no complaints. A wonderful alternative to the more expensive Nikon equivalent. I had rented the Nikon fisheye previously and could not see a noticeable difference. A fun lens that will give you amazing results.

Very Good Lens

Marcio Silva, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am a professional wedding and stock photographer (architecture and travel) and bought this lens to use with my Canon 5D Mark III. I used to have a Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye, but the Tokina is soft on the borders when used with a Full Frame camera (very soft). The Sigma 15mm is tack sharp in the center and very good on the borders. I read in the reviews when I was searching for a fisheye designed for full frame cameras that this Sigma 15mm has a slow autofocus.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor Lens Cap

180 Degree View

Keen Photographer, B&H Photo
14 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I already use a Canon 17-40 mm lens on Canon 5d III but to go even wider, the Sigma 15 mm was needed. A well made solid lens. Noisy, slow focus but this is not an issue with how the lens is typically used. Images at f8 and f11 are very sharp. Yes lots of distortion but it is a 180 degree view lens on a full frame body. Amazing depth of field particularly at f16 and f22.
  • Pros: Amazing depth of field, Ultra Wide Angle View
