Absolutely stunning piece of kit!
8 May 2017
I've contemplating buying one for some time and I finally took the plunge and it's an amazing lens. I bought it to fit a Sony A6000 as I needed to capture to some interesting sights around London for a project I'm working on. It's a manual focus so disable the lens checking option in camera ( on the Sony it will remind you the second you connect it! ), on the first day out I simply set focus to infinity, shot mostly as f/8 and mostly just adjusted the ISO and exposure compensation to cover the rest. I used it mostly indoors as I was intrigued to see how it would "bend" all the verticals and it's truly fascinating to see it at work. One thing that takes some getting used to is that the lens has a huge field of view and often times it can quite literally see behind you, often pulling in 8-10 feet if the ceiling directly above and behind your head. This also occurs below and you have to be quite careful when shooting to check the bottom of the frame as you will see your own feet and arms! I absolutely adore this lens and it has to be one of the best purchases I've made in a long, long time.
