Sigma 8mm Fish (f3.5) on D800??? Images???

Although I own the no-hood version of the Tokina 10-17mm Fish I would actually like to go *full* *circle*, that is: have a circular fisheye lens where the circle is fully round on the image (yes, with that black extra area).

So what about the Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye? Any good?

Therefore I am looking for sample images of this camera & lens combination?

Anyone here? Please post in this thread!

Thanks in advance!

A Simple Google Search Perhaps?

One search on Google found this site

http://www.pixel-peeper.com/lenses/?lens=257&p=1

There are lots of images using this lens on there with a whole range of cameras.

You will have to spend a bit of time yourself    and hunt through the 140 pages to sort out the D800/E images.

I used one a couple weeks ago - but used Photoshop ACR to manually convert/stretch to fit. Here are some examples: http://geoffjohnsonfilms.blogspot.com/2014/02/neighborhood-snow-2132014.html

I found  a few problems around the edges (especially after stretching) - but since I converted to B&W - no issues.

Not surprising, a round image is kind of silly

I found that site very useful! I did a search there, narrowing it down to that lens on a D700 (there were no D800 images) and found  38 photos.
