  • Excerpt: Webought this lens to shoot Google Business Views panos as our secondary gear. At first use, we found that it has very little flares, which helps with our current use of it. It´s not as versatile as other fisheyes we own, but it is very robust and simple to use.

Front lens cap and adaptor ring

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using the lens for about 6 months now and of course I have been extra careful handling the lens especially when removing the front lens cap.

Save your money/Better alternatives

lkrogers, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this exclusively to shoot 360° Virtual Tours & Google Business View tours. I like the lens: Images are sharp and the color is good but it is way over priced! I have a Rokinon 8mm lens with just about the same coverage.

Sigma 8mm f/3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye review by langier

langier, slrgear.com
15 December 2014
  • Summary: I've used fisheye lenses for most of my career and for the past 20 years have had to learn to use the circular fisheye lenses for one of my clients. The Nikon 8mm 2.8 fisheye was the best during film days, but finding one years after discontinuance makes them pricy.
  • Pros: Size and quality
  • Cons: Paint issue and infinity focus

Does what it supposed to do

Mike, B&H Photo
18 November 2014

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Tough To Attach
