Sigma 10 mm f/2.8 EX DC FISHEYE HSM

10 December 2009

11. Summary

Pros:
  • high build quality,
  • great frame centre picture quality at maximum relative aperture,
  • very good against the light work,
  • low coma,
  • slight astigmatism,
  • low vignetting,
  • a possibility to use standard filters,
  • silent and fast autofocus,
  • rich accessory kit,
  • three-year warranty with the possibility of extending it by two more years.

Cons:

  • the standard filters adapter makes the lens’s field of vision significantly narrower.

The lens is undeniably a big success. I admit I really had to struggle to find any faults with it and I endeavoured to write about the adapter for the cap and the filter.
