Sigma 15mm f2.8 EX Diagonal Fisheye

15mm_Lg_1_
Review Date: Mar 5, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $530.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: A very affordable lens, sharp and fun to play with.
Cons:
Lack of a way to add a filter to the lens. Would love to get an ND filter on this. Other than that, no issues at all.

It was a toss up between this one and the Canon 15mm lens. Asking local wedding photographers which one they preferred (In their spare time) they all pointed to the Sigma as a good buy. I tried both out in the store with my memory card, came home and did some quick comparisons and found that the Sigma was sharper. These were very 'unscientific' tests, but it proved enough for me to buy one. I have spent the week with this on the end of my 1DM4 taking close up shots of all my friends, rooms and anything that I couldn't normally fit in with a regular lens.
