Like Willy b said, this lens is designed for croppers. All the shots I've posted have been from a crop. I'm kinda scared to mount it on the 5d. It would be so wide, I could probably see my knuckles in every shot.

I have the ProOptic version, $290 from Adorama. Here's a barnyard shot:

I tried the lens on an old Elan 35mm film camera, and it does go a bit wider, though there's vignetting caused by the built-in lens hood. I don't believe the focal length is really 8mm, the results look very close to the 10mm Sigma diagonal fisheye for crop cameras. The optics and build quality on this lens are as good as any -- the low cost is because of the lack of autofocus and auto-aperture (which I don't miss on this lens.) Also, if anything goes wrong, it's probably a throw-away... but it's so simple, I don't expect any problems.

Here's a shot of the sky using the film camera, with the vignetting cropped out:

wow, 2nd and 3rd and great! What HDR software did you use? I'm thinking I may need to invest, as looking at shots it seems that this lens works very well with HDR.

Thanks, I used Photomatix, next some PS (curves and some actions) to make colors more saturated.

In my opinion it's a good software. I've tried also other popular HDR soft, but Photomatix seems to be the best for me.

There is also some new program, MACHINERY, which is developed by the member of canon-board.info, I didn't use it but maybe you should try it if you like this kind of photos?

Yes, pics from my 40D.

Got mine yesterday :D I love it. I thought I would really struggle with the manual focus, however it doesn't really seem a major issue. Seems that if you put the lens at F8 then you don't need to focus "that" much.

Anyway here is a shot I have been wanting to do for ages...
