Excerpt: A question was sent to me about using this lens on a Nikon D-90...I have a Nikon D-80 & 7000, and love this lens for both. I've used it on landscapes & cathedrals and while the edges are curved, simply crop that part out. I do not find it has a fisheye effect. I have only used it outside in sunshine & cloudy skies so I can't review it for indoors. I would recommend it if you are looking for an ultra-wide lens for your bag.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I've been wanting/needing a wider angle lens, I do a lot of real estate photography & it really comes in handy for interior shots. After reading many reviews I decided on the Sigma 8-16mm. Used it on a shoot the day after it arrived & couldn't be more happy with it. This lens does everything I was expecting it to do. The interior photos I took came out spectacular along with outside porch views of the ocean & pool area below.
Summary: This model is no longer available for pentax format camera systems, so I am extremely happy to own one. I was looking for an ultra wide that I could pair with my 17-70mm walk around lens when I needed a wide shot. This lens exceeded my expectations. You can almost take a picture of the items behind you. It is that wide. At 8mm there is some distortion, but it isn't fisheye distortion and mor to it can be controlled within lightroom 5. I love how sharp the lens is.

Summary: This was ordered and delivered to my residence about a month ago. My house sitter received it. It was selected by review over the Zeiss 12mm wide angle for a NEX-7. I haven't used it as I am far away but wait with great anticipation to try it out. This review is being written in advance so perhaps Amazon will get off my back asking for my opinion. By the way shipping was faster than Snyders hound. Finally had a chance to give this lens a run thru.
