I was looking for an FX fisheye to replace my DX Nikon 10.5 Fish and it came down to this lens or the Nikon 16 f/2.8. The Nikon was over $200 more expensive and most reviews said this lens was slightly sharper. Both had the same 180 degree view somehow.
The first thing I noticed about this lens when I opened the box was that it's "Made in Japan." That's a good start. I've had 3rd-party lenses in the past and somehow where it's manufactured has always been a built-quality issue. Not with this lens.
Traded a bunch of rarely used lenses for this Fisheye. Have Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L and 70-200 f/2.8 II L, considered Canon 16-35, but too much overlap. The image quality is fantastic. I can't really imagine much better results with any lens ... At a reasonable cost.
Great image quality, Lightweight
None to date
Too much coma for my desired use (Milky Way). I should have paid attention to warnings from other astrophotogs and not purchased this lens for that purpose. Otherwise nice, seems like I got a good copy.
i saw this lens in a gray market store, its paint was peeling and it it's front element etched by water damage. i tested it then and still saw some sharpness but everything else was hazy.
sharp, good build(but of course sucky sigma paint and labelling), pretty good control of flaring and ghosting
the build in hood needs some revision, its great and metal protection but how do you mount a filter in the front even with the adapter for the cap?
I purchased this lens a few years ago and it's one of the better lenses I have. I have two Canon L-series lenses (the 24-70mm USM and the 70-200mm) and the sharpness, colours and clarity I get from this lens beats my two L-series hands down.
Great colour and sharpness.
