Re: Which fisheye? sigma 15/nikon 16/samyang 12?

The Sigma comes from the days when Sigma was a budget lens maker. I wouldn't hope for too much from it, which is why it is cheaper than even the Samyang.

The Samyang is very good and it does have reviews. It also has a lens profile in Adobe if for some reason you want the image to look more rectilinear. I don't remember seeing flare on the Samyang. Chromatic aberration is there but not a wild amount. It responds to correction. It is sharp enough. I didn't see any real gotcha on that lens. I thought it was a bit better than their 8mm for crop sensors.
