flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 15 fisheye (FF)|
|price paid:||700 (new)|
|positive:||180 degree for ASP-C, sharp, QUIET, well made|
|comment:||This lens is so quiet that at first I thought the autofocus was broken since I didn't hear it moving. Now I am wanting more HSM lenses because of this. |
I am mostly a landscape photographer and I love this lens for nature shots, especially when looking down towards the ground. There is a lot of CA when taking landscape photos.
I originally had bought a Sigma 15 fisheye which was for full-frame cameras. At the time I didn't understand the difference. I wasn't happy with it on the A700. When the Sigma 10 fisheye was announced for ASP-C cameras, I thought and thought and thought and finally acted and bought one. I am so glad I did. The distortion is amazing and so far I have not seen any flare.
I highly recommend this lens to anyone thinking about a fisheye.
