Great glass, great buy!

This 15mm f/2.8 Sigma lens performed great right out of the box with my Canon 350D. I take astro photographs of the night sky and it grabbed a bunch of sky with very minimal horizon bend. Nice piece of equipment.

Better than I expected

By

Traded a bunch of rarely used lenses for this Fisheye. Have Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L and 70-200 f/2.8 II L, considered Canon 16-35, but too much overlap. The image quality is fantastic. I can't really imagine much better results with any lens ... At a reasonable cost.

Great Diagonal Fisheye

By

I had wanted a fisheye for some time, but I didn't want one of the fisheyes that was a circle inside a black frame. This diagonal fisheye is what I settled on. I read reviews of the Canon fisheye (which is more expensive, and an f.4), and there is negligible difference, especially considering the price and maximum aperture. Plus, this is a FUN lens, not a work lens! The lens is not "cheap" in terms of price, and definitely not in construction. It's well made, and has a solid feel. There are many auto-focus points that are very usable on this lens, and it locks-in very quickly. The manual focus is easy to use (good grips, smooth action), and has focal ranges marked clearly on the lens body. Reviews cover it, and the lens doesn't hide it - there is some noise when focusing. If you are used to a USM, it is louder than that. If you have ever used the Canon 50mm f1.8 lens, it sounds similar to that during auto-focus.

Very fun lens

By

I looked into this lens when the Nikon 16mm was out of stock. Reviews looked good and the $300 savings was also appealing. I took it on a photo workshop and was not disappointed. The lens is sharp and has very little flare. I was able to shoot straight towards the sun for "sun star" effects for some great shots. Shooting old trucks was awesome with this lens. All in all, a very fun, lightweight addition to my kit. I'm very glad it bought it.

I really like this lens

By

Fisheye lens are, in my opinion, meant for creative pursuits. At least that's what I use mine for. This is a very good lens. I have a couple of Sigma lens and they haven't let me down yet. Add this to that list.

Great alternative to Nikon 16mm Fisheye!

By

Up until now I have been a Nikon purist - I wanted everything to be pure Nikon. I bought this lens because it was $300 cheaper than the Nikon 16mm Fisheye and it is every bit as good! I have not been disappointed yet!

Fast focus and sharp!

By

If you havent used a fish eye before get used to the field of view! I do have pics with my feet in them, lol. I went with the Sigma over the canon to save cash. good choice in that I use this lens occasionally. it performs well for the money if you dont have L glass money.

A little loud but out performs the Canon

By

After using the 10mm Sigma Fisheye on my 7D, I needed a lens that would be compatible with my full frame 5D. The 15mm Canon has known issues, those of which the Sigma lack. Although it's a little loud when autofocusing, it's fast and sharp. Even wide open, aberrations are barely present, when compared to the now defunct Canon 15mm. Worth the money and great for video.

Questions about this item:

JERRY R  I have a crop and a full frame camera, but travel primarily with my 70D. Which would be the best lens for landscape photography on my 70D, the 10mm or 15 mm Sigma fisheye lens?
TONY A  The 15mm make pictures look more natural, the 10mm is better for artistic pictures.
Shopper  will this work with the canon 60D?
BRYAN M  Yes this lens is compatible with the 60D. It's a great lens. Also check out the Tokina 10-18mm fisheye. That's a fun one too.
JAMES R  Hi, I'm not sure I fully understand the differences between "diagonal" fisheye, and "circular" fisheye lenses like the ones offered by Tamron in various focal lengths (8, 10, 15 mm). I currently have an APS-sized sensor Canon T3i, but may upgrade to a full-frame 6D in the future, but that notwithstanding, again what is the basic difference between Tamron's diagonal and circular fisheye lenses? Thanks!
AARON T  A diagonal or rectilinear fisheye will fill the frame corner to corner for a given sized sensor. Since the 15mm is made for full frame, it'll fill a 35mm sensor from corner to corner. A circular fisheye will be a circle in the center of the frame, with just black space in the corners. On a APS-C sensor, the 15mm won't be as "fishy" as it will be on a FF sensor also.
