Smooth Operator

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: An amazing wide-angle. Works perfectly on my Canon M5. Ideal large aperture for wide-angle astro landscapes. Sharp and well-controlled artifacts, even wide open at f/2. Very quality build. Only complaint is the six aperture blades - makes for less than impressive starbursts.

Amazing lens! Feels like a $900 lens

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: Amazing lens! Feels like a $900 lens! I love the stiff focus ring. The resistance makes it precise for pulling focus in video. If you want to pull focus in video, this is great! Keep in mind... This is a manual lens.

Genuinely Surprised

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: When I changed from a Nikon based DSLR outfit to a Fuji X-T1 mirrorless recently I wanted a replacement for my well used and much loved Sigma 10-20mm f4/5.6.

Superb image quality . Pin sharp details

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Superb addition to my Sony A6000. As stated by many others no need to worry about manual focussing as everything is pin sharpe from front to back, from about f5.6 when your distance marker is set on the little line just before infinity . Use focus peaking on your Sony and jobs a good 'un.
