comment:A realy good fisheye, ultra wide, 180 degrees view.

Did not like the sigma 12-24. The 12-24 was not as sharp as the 10mm. But the 10mm has far more distortion.

I sold the 12-24.
Now I was looking for a good ultawide lens for 360-180 foto's and the 10mm does a great job.

I like the min focus distance aspecialy at 2.8!

This is a keeper.
