    Cons: none

    Pros: A perfect lens!

    Summary: This is a crazy lens. It is the sharpest lens I have got. It even outperforms Panasonic f1.7 20 mm in the center and shows better corner sharpness too. Vignetting and chromatic abberations are more or less negligiable. It is light, very well built and fully usable from 3.5. And it is cheap. If you defish it, you get practcally fully usable ultra-wide shots at f5.6 with splendid center sharpness and decent corners, escpecially with 4K-Video as corners are partly being cropped away. Contrary to what lenstip reports I saw it clearly outperform Olympus 8mm f/1.8 at all apertures concerning sharpness, CAs and vignetting. This is my advice: If you want to do astro-photography with the fisheye, go for the Samyang rather than for the Olympus and look for a good upvoted mechnical astro-tracker which is available for under 200 EUR.

    Cons: Too small to handle comfortably is the only real con. Other than that, it would be nice if it was a bit faster.

    Pros: Amazing sharpness. Lightweight, yet solid build. Fits any pocket.

    Summary: A great tool giving a unique perspective at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    Cons: The build quality sucks, the lens barely holds together. Mine fell apart and the way the glass is calibrated to stay in exact position is very primitive.

    Pros: good optical quality, inexpensive

    Summary: Very affordable and handy lens with decent optical quality and below average build quality.

    Cons: Shooting close-ups with no viewfinder is hard, because of no autofocus. But yeah it's cheap.

    Pros: Price. Size. Fun for some different find of pics.

    Summary: Awesome lens to have. Most of the time I have it on "infinity" and try not to get too close to the subject.

    Cons: For the money, none.

    Pros: Size, weight, optical quality, grin factor when you see the results.

    Summary: I love this lens. It's hardly come off the camera since I bought it. A lot of the shots that I've taken were only possible with this lens, or with another extortionately priced offering of the same spec.
