eric, cleveland Long time Semi Pro.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good viewing without having the complete 180% circle view, the circle just covers the APS-C size image chip, you still get curvature but not as much as full circle, expected from a Fisheye. If you want 180% view in full circle, get the alternative 8mm one and not this 10mm. Good shots in very tight places with this lens, curvature correction can be made in Photoshop software if wished.
Bad points:
Expected curvature in a Fisheye as expected, found no real bad points in this lens, except that it has no water or dustproof sealing as in Canon lenses. Well made though for the price. I would have prefered the Canon, but the savings in cost make up for this lens!

Does what it says on the box... FISHEYE enables a new perspective to be employed.
Bad points:
Non, but don't get carried away and bore friends and family with hoards of extreme fisheye shots!

Manufacturer's Description

Sigma’s 10mm F2.8 EX DC Fisheye HSM lens is a diagonal fisheye which means the distorted scene is shown full frame within the camera’s field of view. The diagonal field of view produces striking images with exaggerated perspective of near subject & extreme barrel distortion of the surrounding areas. It allows photographers to shoot creative images by taking advantage of the acute perspectives that are invisible to the human eye. The diagonal fisheye is the most popular kind of fisheye and are often used by wedding photographers who want to give an “artistic” looks to images, by underwater photographers who want to take in the maximum field of view possible and by scenic photographers. The minimum focusing distance of 5.3 inches and magnification ratio of 1 to 3.3 allows the photographer to have fun with placement of subjects extremely near to the camera with distorted backgrounds. In the hands of an artist this lens can produce memorable, eye-catching images.
