positive:Perfect focal length for APS-C fisheye.
Auto-focus!!
Good build, lens cover is nicely designed.
negative:Flare control not very good, but expected for such wide lens.
comment:A great lens to have for occasional creative shots.
In my bag whenever I am going to take creative group photos.
Great to bring to a wedding shoots for few photos sure to induce "wow" effects.
Recommended, even for APS-C (Works great on my A700)

positive:Unbelievably wide! Well built. Fisheye effect. Good image quality.
negative:Crop on APS-C cuts off top and bottom
comment:I don't own this but i've used it enough to comment. I counted the distortion at 5 because it does what its supposed to. Distortion is what you want on this thing. This is a fun lens. Very wide, very well made, very cool effect, and very good results. Surprisingly sharp in the center, less so on the outsides. Good colors.
