  • Conclusion: For those needing this type of lens, for example when using software to create panoramics or for those involved in the scientific measurement of angles, where the output from this lens is quantifiable, this lens is an excellent tool. For those who just want to experiment with the unusual perspective of a 180° field of view, or even the somewhat reduced field if using the lens on a cropped sensor, then this lens is a high class example.
  • Pros: High optical resolution, Good control of aberrations, Compact size and weight
  • Cons: Restricted uses (but it is a specialised lens), Expensive if only being used for the fun element

Lens Test: Sigma 8mm f/3.5 EX DG AF

  • Excerpt: An updated version of Sigma's 8mm f/4 spherical fisheye, this is the field's widest circular fisheye with autofocus. It's also among the last Sigma film-era lenses to be upgraded with coatings that suppress reflections from digital sensors ("DG"). It captures a 180-degree field of view, with exaggerated perspective and dramatic linear distortion, especially along the frame edges.
