5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest bang for buck fisheye lenses . . period!, 13 May 2012
This review is from: Sigma 15mm F/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye For Sony/Minolta AF (Electronics)
Ratings are from 1-5 (5 being the highest) and are subject to amendment, though these are my initial findings of the lens for the Sony/Minolta A-mount.

Sharpness: 4.5
Colour: 5
Build: 5
Distortion: 5
Flare control: 5

Tested on full frame: 24MP Sony Alpha A850

Compared to: Samyang 8mm F/3.5 MC Fisheye

+ Positive:

Excellent build quality
Fast AF
Sharp images
Excellent colour rendition
Lightweight
Excellent finish and tactile feel

- Negative:

2 piece lens cap? Not so much of a negative, more of a glaring observation, but this could've been constructed as a single unit.

Comments:

Having owned the Samyang 8mm MC fisheye, I always hankered after an AF fisheye and was fortunate to source an 'as new' copy.

I'll keep this brief . . it's brilliant! It's a real joy to use and I was very pleasantly surprised by every aspect of this lens. Having seen how much the Minolta 16mm fisheye can change hands for, let alone the cost for the re-released Sony branded version, all I can say is that this Sigma fisheye is probably one of the best bang for buck buys if you're looking for the lens type. I can't say any more than that, except that don't pass it up if the opportunity presents itself. A terrific optic.
