comment:You can use this great lens so creative! The content of your images will be enormous. Although its a very special lens an for that very expensive. But that does not matter if you know how to use it.
Fantastic sharp in center, the corners are soft. Who wonders when you look at that (typical) distortion.
The sigma answers my needs, so i just can rate it nearly perfect. It is the best 180 degree fisheye for APS-C.

Perfect on APS-C its almost useless on FullFrame in my opinion...

The autofocus is great: silent and accurate. Prefocus is not a problem at this focal length too.
