Comments | [12/16/06] Great lens, plenty sharp, and has great colour and contrast. On a 1.6 crop camera the fishyness is almost not noticable, and on a 1.3 crop camera it is plenty wide and gives you lots of flexibility in how fishy your shots are depending on how you frame your subject, and how many straight lines there are. On a full frame digital or 35mm film camera it is dangerously wide, I have trouble keeping my feet out of the shot.

Comments | [12/09/06] Great lens. Always with me for just about every assignment. Have used with both a 20D and MarkIIn - fisheye effect is reduced on the 20D - can't wait to get a 5D. :-)

Comments | [12/01/06] I would have to rate this lens in my top 3 favorites (600mm f4, 200mm1.8, 85mm1.2II). It is sharp, sharp...and flare always seems to be at a minimum to nill. Cap seems to be the only thing that is hard to keep up with it, but never a problem that it creates havoc on the job. Here is a link of some shots I have taken showing off it's wide range on a Mark IIn even at a 1.3 conversion factor. I give this lens a ten, for its sharpness and ability to enhance creativity to those that seek different angles in a session.

Comments | [03/07/05] This is a great lens on the D60/10D/20D series. The 1.6X crop cameras reduce most of the fisheye effect leaving just a little bowing that looks nice and not as tiring as full frame fisheye. And it is very sharp. I think mine is sharper and less prone to flare than my 14 22.8 L series lens.
