      This lens is definitely worth every penny spent! The sharpness, clarity and overall quality of the photos taken with the Sigma 10mm fisheye make this my lens of choice for 360 degree panos.

      Comments about Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha Camera:

      The lens adds a new prospective to photos if you dont mind the distorted effect. I have the Sony 11-18mm wide angle and so far I prefer thia lens. I like the 180 degree angle it can establish. Be careful not to get the tripod leg in your shot. Good lens for architecture and landscape. It also gives an nice effect when shooting a panoramic.

        Comments about Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha Camera:

        A great lens to exaggerate the landscape or to duplicate the near far David Muench photograph.
        Also good for opening up small spaces. Not for portraiture unless your intent is to exaggerate
        the face or body parts.

          Comments about Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha Camera:

          I have only had this lens for a couple of weeks now and I love it!! I was surprised how sharp the images are. Even at f/2.8 the images are very sharp. The construction of the lens is of high quality and durable. I can't wait to use this lens in Tahoe! This lens is fun and creative...I know I will get a lot of use out of this lens.

            Comments about Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha Camera:

            What a great lens...this lens far exceeded my expectations. I own three other Sigma lenses 105mm f/2.8, 30mm f/1.4, 18-50mm f/2.8 (that I'm not crazy about) so I wasn't sure what to expect with this lens. WOW!! It's awesome. I love the true 180 degrees I get on my Sony A580. This lens is a blast to shoot with too. Even at f/2.8 the images are super sharp, I expected some softening at 2.8 but the images are tack sharp!! Great lens...I'm a concert photographer and I can't wait to see what I can do with this lens in that setting!!

                I use this lens in architecture photo and I find it really great as it is possible to take otherwise impossible images indoor and images with spectacular distortion of the spaces outdoor. It is provided with a nice case and a solid lens cap.
