This is what I call a "fun lens".I got the Canon version, which is totally manual. This is really not an issue. Once you get the hand of it, it's very easy to use and the pictures look great!On the Canon it covers a field of vision of around 167 degrees. You can get a whole room on one shot.
Worked well for a year or so... Softer at anything under F5.6. My internal aperture mechanism fell apart for no reason. You can hear a little rattle and turning the ring no longer changes the aperture. Stuck at who knows what F stop currently (very narrow that's all I know).
Great lens for the price. If you know the various personality issues of a fish eye lens (distortion, etc) and accept that this is manual focus and aperture adjustment, then you should love this lens. It is very solid and well made.
Took it out for test run and works great. Had a lot of fun going back to old school with everything manual. I bought this to do night shots. Haven't been able to go and do that but, I think it going to be just fine.
Its OK. I bought it on a whim for very occasional use.
I use this lens on my D3300 and my 810. It meters on the 810 but it is not a full frame lens; it does not meter on the D3300. That said, if you are okay doing everything manually, it is an incredibly sharp lens and it makes great photos. I really had a great with it traveling in Asia.
THIS LENS BANGS HARDER THAN A GIRL AT A GUCCI MAINE CONCERT
Works good for the price I am happy with it
If I set the lens to 6ft/f5.6 in my living room everything is very sharp across the field except for about 15% on the left which is mush. If I focus on the object to the left (same composition) I have to extend the lens to about 14" for it to be sharp, then everything else is soft.
This is a full manual lens that delivers very sharp pictures. I mounted on my old Canon EOS XSi and shoot in Av mode. Best to focus in live view at 10x using a tripod on objects at less than one-meter distance. Sharpest pictures were at f11/f16 apertures on the entire field of view.
