I am really interested, but what is everyone using it for? How is the quality?

Fisheyes can be used for a lot of stuff, including but not limited to landscapes, portraits, sports, macro, architecture, QTVR panoramics, etc. Sharpness is very excellent and it is a very contrasty lens, but it has LOTS of chromatic aberration.

I believe popphoto.com, photodo.com, and photozone.de have reviews of it.

When I had my 20D this was my only other lens besides my 50 f/1.8. I loved the lens. Its well worth the money and I got some great shots with it. It has so-so colors, good contrast, and the CA isnt as bad as people say. I say buy it, you wont regret it.

If you decide that you want a fisheye, then I believe that the Tokina is the one to buy for cropped-sensor cameras.

I think it's a fun lens.
