Yeah i took a few shots without the curve, very nice for extreme wide angle, but i have a question? how do i get sharp focus on a subject and blur out the background ?

Very difficult on a super wide angle lens like that. Especially one where you really need to be shooting at f8. Look through this thread and you won't see much Bokeh (that background blur).

Spent most of the day with this lens stuck on my camera. Best bang for the buck lens ever.

This is 3 shots stitched together in Photoshop to make an approximately 270 degree panorama.
