Summary: Amazing picture great build. I used it with my T2i but now have upgraded to a 70D... big jump I know. I can't wait to take it out this weekend and take some quality photos! Be wary that if you plan on taking shots with built-in flash completely wide you will often get a shadow from the hood.
Excerpt: Coming back from a trip to Europe where I made an extensive use of this lens. Gives consistent sharp results at every focal length, but the lens is prone to lens flare, for photos taken outside as well as inside. Very annoying. Almost every photos taken with the lens has a lens flare in it that needs computer retouching. Real rating is 3.5/5 stars. The lens gives nevertheless good results in terms of sharpness, bokeh, colors, but the lens flare is definitively an issue.
Excerpt: Solid, well built lens. Bulbous front element well protected by an integral lens hood and supplied storage sleeve. Coverage at 8mm on the Nikon D7100 is amazing. Very pleased with the overall sharpness of the lens.
Pros: Angle Of Coverage, Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Sharpness, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is my main lens on the D7100. Even for low light indoors and video. The slow aperture properties allow less diffraction at smaller aperture settings like f/13 to f/22. Thus making it great for huge depth of field landscape shots. And, pulling small details from distant objects. Also, the bulbous front element prevents a lot of glare.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: My favorite lens of all time. I use this on my Canon 60D APS-C and it is my go to lens for room interiors, sweeping landscapes, etc. You will be amazed at just how WIDE this lens really is! The world is your oyster when using this lens, because nothing will be out of reach when you are composing your shots! Focusing distance is only a couple of inches to infinity, so your options are endless. My only negative about this lens is the fact that I can't use filters.
