Specifically designed for digital SLR cameras equipped with APS-C size image sensors, the Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens is a lens that captures a rectangular 180° view in all directions. The diagonal field of view of this fisheye lens produces striking images with exaggerated perspective and distortion.

The minimum focusing distance of 5.3" (13.5 cm) and maximum magnification 1:3.3 allows subjects to be as close as 0.7" (1.8 cm) from the lens' front element. This close focusing capability allows close-up photography and also it is possible to make use of large depth of field that covers wide range of subjects. Even the most familiar and mundane of subjects can be portrayed with startlingly fresh new expressions through exaggerated perspectives and unusual distortion effects. Well suited for academic and technical measurements such as solid angle measurements, cloud cover measurements & virtual reality.

DC lenses are exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras. The image circle (rear of lens) is made to match the smaller dimensions used for the image sensor on digital cameras. As a result, these lenses are also more compact and lightweight, and are better matched to digital SLR cameras.

Note! Not compatible with 35mm film cameras or digital cameras using full-size image sensors (e.g. D3).

Fast, ultra-wideangle, rectangular image lens.
EX lens series denotes excellence of engineering and new technology.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override.
The built-in lens hood blocks out extraneous light, and the Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting, creating superior image quality.
The lens is supplied with an insertion-type gelatin filter holder at the rear allowing the use gelatin filter.

3 out of 5 eggsFun Lens

Pros: Amazing wide-angle for Canon 7D or any other 1.6x crop sensor. Bought this for video work with my 7D and have used it many times, either for the fun fish-eye effect, or to show a 180 degree panorama. This IS the best fish-eye for the 7D or any cropped sensor DSLR.

Cons: Not sharp at the f/2.8 range in comparison to other Canon or Tokina lenses. Stopped up to the 4 range and you'll see a big difference but lose a lot of the low light capability that makes this lens appealing. I still use the 2.8 range for filming concerts and other things and the footage is definitely usable, just don't expect Canon level sharpness in this range. It's also slightly more noisy at higher ISO ranges in comparison to Canon and Tokina lenses.

Other Thoughts: I bought this lens specifically for its Fish-Eye barrel effects for video. It's a very expensive lens for this single effect so if you're looking for a good wide-angle lens for a cropped sensor camera such as the Canon 7D, I highly recommend the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX, which is nearly as wide without the fish-eye barrel effects and extremely sharp in the 2.8 range!

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad but expected more

Pros: Excellent build quality. Very carryable and lens cover stays in place. Built in hood petals protect glass from the environment. Good wide angle on a 1.6 crop sensor. In the right environment, this is a good walk around lens.

Cons: Not sharp at f2.8 - I was expecting "canon crisp". Stopped down to f8 it looks real nice though.

Other Thoughts: Still getting used to the uses of a fisheye in my photography.
