Nicely done review, as always, Adam! I think it has convinced me, for now, that I can skip the fisheye and go for a rectilinear wide-angle zoom lens... It is definitely a specialty-purpose lens, like a macro lens, that I personally would only use on rare occasions. So I can't justify owning it... but nevertheless, it's an outstanding lens for photographers that can get the most out of it!

Nice review! This is a fun lens, if you like fisheye. Since it's about the same size as the kit lens, it's easy to sneak into the travel bag.

One thing - the grooves on the inside of the hood petals will actually take a 58mm filter thread, although vignetting is bad at the wide end.

Yep, I'm getting the same thing, an error message on my desktop and IPad.
