let me start off by saying you get what you pay for. When i first got this lens, i was expecting it to do the job of giving me a wide angle. It does this just fine. The drawback of this lens is that it only looks good in 4:3, which isn't the standard ratio anymore. I shoot 16:9, like most people, and this lens cuts off about half of my image. To get rid of it, i would just zoom in, but since this is a fisheye, i don't want to break the first rule of using a fishey: don't zoom. This is a good lens for the money, but don't get it expecting much more.
