Excerpt: I bought the lens for my Sony alpha 55 which is a full-frame camera and I wanted to add an ultra wide lens along with my other lenses. I am satisfied, I planned on using it for mostly outdoor features as well as other times when I need it. I think it's well made and feels great and solid right out of the box.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Hello, I bought this lens a while back. Here are the most obvious observations I've made from using this lens. The focus distance is great; you can be literally centimeters away from your subject and, it will still catch it in focus most of the time. This lens is wide! Ever since I bought this lens it has rarely seen its long focal length side. This lens is just insanely wide and, it is easy to forget that it's a zoom lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy, Poor in Low Light
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
