Thanks. I don't ever do HDR. I try hard to replicate the film (esp. velvia look) on post work however.

I suspected that. It's just that it's very rich in colors and contrast.
I like it.

I have it for about 5 months now. It is a Bower copy and the distance scale seems pretty accurate. I also installed the AF confirm chip, while the confirmation is fairly loose but it general works well when I go from the short side until the camera beeps.

What is exactly way off?
The distance on the scale versus reality - or the AF measurment?
For the first I have a method to adjust the register distance on my website, and two links to methods for IF correction - but those are German and Polish language, probably the pictures help.

How's this lens compare to the Sigma 15mm Fisheye? Priced at around $350 new vs. $375-400 for a used Sigma.

I don't think you can compare them. They are completely different.

Cheers.

Getting the hang of this one. This is on a D7000. The focus indicator is a bit... lax.

Thanks!
I don't have a setup shot, but I handheld one flash with my left hand and another flash is in a tray behind the drivers seat, both with bouncers. You can see both shadows from the passenger seat that will kinda show where the flashlight is comin from.
This was just a snapshot as this truck was leaving our workshop in 5mites so I was in a rush. Couldnt take the truck tp some nice outdoor setting so I had to remove the workshop and replace it with a gradient in the windows.

Thanks, Paul.
Now I'm wondering whether I should just go for the Nikon version + adapter.

Have you tried doing the adjustments as shown in the pdf file?

In retrospect, I wish I had gone for the Nikon version with an adapter - I think this is a better solution.

I guess the adjustments you're refering to are to do with re-setting the focus ring by peeling back the rubber grip and loosening some screws on the focus barrel. No - I've not tried it. Now that I've got the focus conf chip, I don't think it's worth the hassle/risk!
