Summary: This lens is superb and simply awesome! I got this lens mainly for landscape to distort the images of a "fish eye". It has catapulted my pictures from being decent to top notch professional looking photos thanks to this lens. It's ideal for objects such as the Colliseum in Rome, Pyramids in Egypt, skyscrapers of Chicago and NY. However, they are not the greatest if you're looking at taking pics of people.
Summary: Love It!! This is my first wide angle/fisheye... I have already used this lens for multiple shoots that I would normally never get the full shot in. Now I am able to capture so much more! Awesome!
Summary: This lens is quite possibly on of my favorite lenses and I have a number of Canon L Series Lenses. The color is incredible, sharp, and the possibilities for creative photography with the fisheye is wonderful.
Summary: This lens is my baby. I take it with me everywhere I go. I ordered it nearly 4-5 years ago and it is still going strong after exploring Poland, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and even a fall in 4 feet of water!
Summary: This is a very fun lens, great for extreme distortions. You can get to within about an inch of any subject, which gives you very funny pictures when holding it in front of someone's nose. I uploaded a few pictures that I took with it. The zoom is nice, but I have to admit that I typically used it all the way zoomed out at 10 mm (a 15 mm full-frame equivalent). However, the zoom helps to keep out peripheral stuff you don't want to see.
Summary: I am not a professional photographer. This is my third Tokina lens and they beat Nikon in quality, performance and price... Undoubtedly best performer....period. If you are planning to buy... Don't think twice ...Take a plunge. I own a Nikon 10.5 mm fisheye too, but this beats it...
Summary: I purchased this lens exclusively for underwater photography use. It is recommended by many UW photography sites and UW photographers as a must have lens for wide angle photography. Although I also have a Canon 10-22 mm lens, I thought I'd give this a try and see what all the excitement was about. Well, they weren't kidding. This is a phenomenal tool for UW photography. I shot this through an 8" Ikelite dome using a Canon 7D.
