Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye 35mm Primes
This autofocus fisheye lens is designed for use with digital SLR cameras equipped with APS-C size image sensors. The Nikon version produces a diagonal angle of view of 180°(154°for Sigma, 167°for Canon). The diagonal field of view of this fisheye lens produces striking images with exaggerated perspective and distortion. The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch, and maximum magnification 1:3.3 allows subjects to be as close as 1.8cm/0.7inch 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. The Integral hood blocks out extraneous light and the Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting, creating superior image quality. The HSM(Hyper Sonic Motor)ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring. This lens is supplied with a gelatin filter holder at the rear, allowing the use of gelatin filters.Now available for Sony/Minolta digital SLRs, and Pentax digital SLRs.

Strengths: Very sharp. Will it distort? Hello! This is a Fisheye review.
Weaknesses: Cap lining is wearing out. :/
Although I have all Canon lenses and mostly L glass, I am over the top with this little gem. I love this Sigma 10mm! On my 1.6 body it will give me 162 degree angle of view. There is a filter in the rear of the lens which is very nice for adding ND filters when shooting slowmo water.
