I purchased this lens for use with my 50D to capture pictures and video of the city of Tokyo during my recent trip to Japan. This lens is manual, which at times made it tricky to set the right focus to get my images sharp.
I haven't really had a chance to use it yet. Tried it around the house, and so far I like it.
I Used this item as soon as it arrived. it was accompanied a set of setup instructions. very easy to follow and you'll be taking shots within a few minutes. I am pleased with the photos. This is an inexpensive way to get started having fun.
This lens is awesome. The optics are excellent, the photo's I have taken are great, Another in a long line of fine Vivatar lenses.
When I opened the box and saw the lens...well, I can't believe this kind of cheap thing cost me 200+ dollars. The focus ring is so cheap that it's like a toy. At that time, I regret to buy it. But thing changed when I tested it on field. The image is so good with super high resolution!
I use this contraption to make spherical panoramas. Works great. Nice clear focus across pretty much the entire mega-wide field of view. Things get a little rough around the edges, but by and large the images are fabulous.
When i bought this lens I thought I wanted the widest fisheye possible. I don't know if this is the widest lens available (at least for cropped sensors) but it's PLENTY wide. You can easily get 180 degree views. Everything on it works great. The focus ring is very smooth and solid.
This is a great lens overall, however I wish I would've realized how far away 7 mm is. The lens is not for close up fisheye that's for sure. However if you're on top of a skyscraper or building and want a beautiful fisheye look over the city this is the perfect lens.
Best bang for my buck hands down! This lens provides more curvature than most other fisheyes I have used in the past; and its affordable!
For a cheap Fisheye this thing is great. It feels solid and is. I prefer the vivitar to the Rokinon which feels a little cheap. The same way the 50 mm 1.8 canon lens feels cheap, light plastic. I believe the Rokinon vs. the vivitar is the same glass though. Its sooo WIDE!!
