question

Has anyone used this lens with a SpeedBooster adapter on a Sony APS-C body? I'm wondering if you get the full circular fisheye effect. Since I'm going to move to Sony full-frame eventually, I'd rather buy this than the 4.5mm crop sensor lens.
Asked by: Peter
I doubt anyone has done this specific combo before. Though you will get no ill effects from doing so. You will still get a circular fisheye effect from this lens.

Wanting to make 360 photos. Would this be a good lens for that?
Asked by: Joseph
It offers a circular photo in a full frame camera so not the best option for 360 images that you will be stitching in the computer. The reason is that part of the sides of the image will be black so it won't be good when stitching the photos together.
