compared to:
price paid:
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.
