            For the price you can't beat this fisheye. Solid construction, no auto features but you can figure out the settings. Took some doing to get my A77 to "read" the lens, just toggle over to "Release w/o Lens" and bang...you are in business. Super quality photo and video...WOW!

                Mi interés por la lente es para capturar grandes campos, sobre todo paisajes y el cielo nocturno. Trabaja muy bien con la cámara Sony Alfa 55. Me parece que no se logran los 180° que indica el fabricante. Quizás alrededor de 120°.

                  This lens does an AWESOME JOB!! My photography friends want this now, and my other friends love the pics. I do not have one complaint so far. It does not auto focus, but most of the pics I take with it will be in "infinity" anyway. For the savings in price, this is not an issue at all. The price is an incredible bargain. After having this lens, I will be looking at other Rokinon lenses!

                    Got this for myself for Christmas 2014. Being an amateur photographer I wanted to start learning how to use a fisheye lens. This is a perfect starter lens for that. With it being a manual lens it forces you to really look at your camera settings instead of relying on the auto settings of the camera.

                          This is an amazingly sharp lens, especially considering how relatively inexpensive it is.
                          True, it is manual focus, but 'infinity' starts at 5 feet, so most of the time, you don't need to focus.
                          I recently took this lens to Sequoia National Park. It was the only way I could get pictures of the giant trees in one frame.
                          This lens is also very good for interior architecture shots.
                          I'm going to have a lot of fun with this lens.

                            Finally, an affordable fisheye that I could justify spending the money on. You don't really need auto focus, and exposure is easy enough. If you've been wanting a fisheye but wary of price, I highly recommend this lens.

                                    This lens is super sharp (for the money) and allows for some great creative photography.

                                    The front and back caps are cheaply made and I forsee having to replace them.

                                    Amazing fish eye made specialy for a APS cameras. Truly 180 Angle of view in One photo . A little bad focus in a short distance but good in the longerst. Good shape and contrast . No much luminose but works grate with the -1 compensation as they sugest in the instructions. Defintly the best price - cuality Bali for this grate fish eye .

                                      This is an excellent lens for that cost. I've used it on my a77 and its a great duo. Nevermind about not having autofocus, since the a77 has a built-in focus peaking. Combining this with a small aperture beyond f8 you don't have to worry about getting things out of focus.
                                      I'm very happy with it.

                                          I use this lens on my sony a57 which I primarily use for video and it is amazing. It's very easy to use. I love that it has an aperture ring on the lens itself. The glass is very sharp. This has replaced my 10-24 Tamron.

                                              I do like this lens a lot. I wish it had auto focus tho. I have taken some nice pictures so far with this lens. The price is right for what you're getting. No regrets.

                                                  I had been thinking about getting a fisheye for a number of years. But, I could never justify the cost/benefit of getting an OEM lens. I'm mostly an event shooter so the main lenses are usually fast standard and short zooms. After reading a few reviews on the best forum for Minolta/Sony photographers, Dyxum, I justified the plunge for this lens.
                                                  Don't worry that it has no AF. Get into the camera menu and set "release without lens" to YES. Set the aperture to F8 and the controller to P (PROFESSIONAL!!) mode and shoot away. I recently covered a tractor pull at an indoor area. The fisheye perspective gave the images a whole new life.
                                                  The lens is sharp. Due to the extreme wide angle you will get some flare from point source lighting, but that just adds to the effect.
                                                  Note: Don't loose either the front of rear caps. The front cap is unique while Minolta/Sony rear caps don't hold on to the rear mount.
