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.

I shopped around to get a fisheye that was exactly what I wanted. This is the one that I decided on. On an APS-C sized sensor, this will have the widest angle of view that I could find for sale. If you want that, get this lens. The problem is that there aren’t too many uses for a near-180 degree field of view. I’ve used it for some candid, cheeky portraits but never for serious portraiture.If you want to get a really wide angle lens, this is the one. Be prepared to crop way down into the center of the picture to minimize the distortion around the edges. Before dropping 700 bones, be sure that you WANT a fisheye. If you don’t want a fisheye, you’ll waste 700 bucks and a lot of space in your camera bag.That said, this lens is so sharp. Even wide open (F/2.8) the depth of field is huge. From the front of the image to the very back the whole thing is sharp. If you expect some bokeh, you won’t find it. I have a Sony Alpha and the HSM motor is the quietest AF I have ever heard. It is faster and quieter than my Sony kit lens. –And with the depth of field, you can afford to be a little off with the focus.

I am not a professional but the lens is spectacular. The focusing is perfect. It is solid, robust and well configured.
I was looking for a Fisheye lens for my Sony DSLR A350. I spent several months reading reviews and finding out what I really needed. Finally I decided to buy this lens for shooting 360×180 equirectangular panoramas.This lens is great. The construction quality is more than good, super sharp pictures even when you’re shooting at f2.8. This lens is also fun because of the natural distortion it creates. If you’re looking for a fisheye lens for your alpha camera with APS-C sensor and don’t want to spend more than 700 dollars, this is the one you need, no question about it.What I also love about this lens is the macro capability. The results shooting macros are fun and interesting.I highly recommend buying this lens for everyone that is looking for a fisheye lens for his Sony camera.
