Check out the defishing posts above. LR profiles tend to distort the edges and/or crop a lot out of these images. There may be better options if you plan to stitch images together.

theres a astrophotography site called Lonely speck that goes through the different ways to de-fisheye this lens for landscape. ones the easy way through lightroom, and then theres the way through photoshop. The photoshop version gives you more of your original image to work with as opposed to the lightroom where you get some cut off (and in astro, some of the stars get stretched like they're trailing in the corners). And theres a youtube tutorial on it. Its a good read and watch

EXIF is wrong. It's the Rokinon Lens but I wasn't able to find any Rokinon lenses when I was asked to specify a lens (in order to add it to my gallery).

I got this lens as a Christmas gift. Awesome! I haven't been outside to use it yet. This is nothing special, but it's one of the first shots I took with it of the kids blanket fort.

I just got one of the Rokinon ones but I am having focus issue. Using it on a 7D. Seems like the outside perimeter of the photo is always in focus but the center never is. Am I missing something/doing something dumb?

Hmm, sounds like there may be something wrong with your copy of this lens. On mine, I've found that focus is not really much of an issue - it's nearly impossible to have an OOF shot, in fact !

The Rokinon 8mm is selling for $179 at Adorama right now. I'm a portrait/people photographer, but for that price, I think I'll pick one up to mess around with.

If you need a environmental portrait one , Im selling my Samyang 28mm for dirt cheap. Samyang makes all the Rokinon lenses.
