    Cons: CA but it is easily correctable in Lightroom Fisheye at 10mm is rather soft around edges

    Pros: Small and lightweight, easy to throw in the bag and carry around Has lovely rendering Zoom from true fisheye to near rectilinear If composed properly, looks very natural in nature settings without straight lines Great value!

    Summary: This is one of my favorite lens.It\'s small, and I\'ve captured some of my favorite shots with it.

    Cons: heavy CAs, lens hood

    Pros: solid build, nice colors, flare resistance, nice fish-effect

    Summary: It's a very nice fisheye but the heavy CAs which are not easily correctable are the biggest flaw. I can totally agree to lensreporter, that except that flaw, this lens is very nice but for me it is "no go" to work with such high CAs.

    Cons: High amount of ACīs (take care with the composition)

    Pros: Very solid and nice construction, fantastic against sun - no flare, sharp, beautiful colours, very strong 180 degrees distortion

    Summary: Without CAīs (nearly imposible with fisheyes!) a TOPLENS! Sharp, well-constructed, very nice distortion, a very good fisheye! My note from 1-10: 8,5 points!
