Pros: Nice and sharp.
Cons:
Big and heavy.

I really like the results of this lens on my Canon T4i and appreciate the 2.8 aperture. However, due to its disproportionate size and weight, I opt to leave it at home most of the time. It is considerably larger and heavier than the Canon 15/2.8 for full frame, and nearly the same size as the very good Sigma 18-250 Macro. No idea why Sigma needed to design such a formidable thing. Another minor gripe is that due to Canon's 1.6x crop factor, you will not get a 180-degree diagonal view as with Nikon.

Pros: Price, build, sharpness
Cons:
Lenscap nearly as big as the lens

Super little lens, sharp right across from corner to corner, fast focus. Great fun when used correctly.

I use it with Nikon DSLRs and post-processing software 'Hemi fisheye' for great results.

Pros: Fast and silent focusing, sharp, great macro ability (1:1.3), nice bokeh (unlike most fast wide angle lenses), price
Cons:
Hood is of limited use (more suitable for storage than for providing shade or protection), can't accept filters.

As the only fast fisheye for a Canon 1.6x crop cameras, this lens is great and fun to use.

Pros: very sharp
Cons:

This lens works fine with Nikon D300. Excellent!
With close as ¾ of an inch from the lenses’ front element for "1 to 3.3 macros" and with f2,8 1/5s a lens for low light photography.
