|comment:||I was always thinking about getting Sony's 16mm F2.8 fisheye at some point but as I have no real intention of going Full Frame at any point, I went with this little corker of a lens and I have never regretted making that choice.|
I've used the lens mostly for extreme wide angle shots, where even the 100+ deg FoV of my Sigma 10-20mm UWA just couldn't hack it. The low distortion when used in this way makes the lens ideal for a city panoramic shot or something along those lines.
