                    Need a few tweakings for the start. First of all, focusing at infinity will produce soft images. Nothing new here, as I was aware of this problem from several reviews...Set it to 1.2 or 1.3 feet, and at F8 or F11, as I notice this setting will produce good, sharp images. These are the settings used for the pictures attached. Make sure you have a soft cloth with you, and check your lens often, as it get very easy to have fingerprints on your lens. Very good product overall, well build, and fun to use.

                      Just as wide as the Olympus 8mm - less than half the price. Heavier with out autofocus, but let's be honest - autofocus on a fisheye? Set your aperture beyond 5.6 and shoot, everything will be sharp, really sharp!
