I am debating between a few fisheye lenses but i have yet to see any samples of this lens. I'm pretty sure there isn't a thread for this yet, if there is, i apologize. If you have any samples of this lens please post, I would love to see!

I recently bought this lens and can highly recommend it! It's fast (f2.8 ), sharp and focusses quick and quiet.
This is one example of it at night (but handheld at a high ISO).

I tested it against the Tokina 10-17 and found the sigma 10mm a better performer overall. I don't need zoom on a fisheye.
I have better examples of the sharpness en nice colour of this lens at home. Will post some later today.

I love the lens:). I bought it thinking oh it'll be abit of a novelty but either way it will be more usefull than my 10-20. . . . .But first shoot with it i was totally blown away. Its dam sharp, produces great colours and is really quick and you can use it a way that doesnt scream out loook its a fisheye.

Is now on my camera as much as the 24-70

Anyway here are some of my shots from it

This is the information I've been looking for. Up to now I'd not seen anyone give a view on the comparison of these two. Care to say any more?

Please, I'm debating on selling the 10-20 for a fisheye. Need some spice for weddings.

The tokina is a nice lens, but in my opinion the sigma is sharper and i like the colour better. At f2.8 it's already quite sharp (a few of my example pics are wide open). I don't need zoom on a fisheye, i want the best performance at 10mm.
Because of the HSM motor the sigma also focusses really fast and quiet.

This is a 100% crop of the third photo (no PP):
