Default Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC Fisheye HSM

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

Some more examples. Don't mind the subjects, most of them are just testshots.

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):
