I've seen many Peleng 8mm fisheye photos but none of Sigma 8mm fisheye so far. Can anyone share photos taken with Sigma 8mm fisheye?

Ignoring the cost, which has better quality picture?

If I was in the market for one of these, I'd choose the Peleng, simply on price - the quality is good enough but an extreme lens like this would get occasional use from me at best, so I'd want to spend as little as possible on this niche lens

Initially i owned the 15mm Zenitar and found it very hard to use, I was also looking for more distortion due to the crop frame factor.
So i spent the $$ and purchased the 8mm Sigma (about $800 AUD), it is not used a great deal but when i use the fisheye, the result is always favourable.

Included are a few of my photos, the photo of the lighthouse was taken on a full moon at 9pm with about 8 sec exposure.

All photos are straight from the camera with no post processing other than adding watermark.

Although i enjoy the lens i can see how it could become a bit boring if overused.

Hope this helps

Seems the sigma has a small image circle than the Peleng; I get less vignetting in the corners with the Peleng somehow. I'm tempted to get a Sigma, since I use the fishy so much for landscapes and the Sigma seems a lot better on flare...
But for the price/quality ratio, the Peleng is still the total winner, /great/ bargain !

Here's one I processed earlier...

FlashAsh, that shot with the water is kinda disturbing in a neat way, I keep expecting the water to rush to the middle of the image somehow.

Glad you like it, I took it while on a recent trip to NZ, it was taken while cruising on a boat down Milford Sound. You can see the wash in the bottom right corner.... on the edge of the vinyetting.

Thanks for your comments guys! I still haven't decided, which lens I'm going to get. Tempted to get the Sigma, however Peleng is $400 less. On the other hand I guess there is no Peleng "customer support/service" if anything happen with the lens.
