Looking for some info on 2 older lenses (fisheye & super wide)

Hi there!

I got an offer for two fairly cheap Sigma lenses from the 80's (probably) & I need some advice

The first is: Sigma 8mm/4 Fisheye circular image

And the second: Sigma 24/2,8 super wide

Are these worthwhile?

Thanks in advance

I have the Sigma 24/2.8 Super Wide II, in AF mount. It's a good lens, quite sharp but a bit prone to flare - so be sure to use a good lens hood. Photozone has a review of this lens in Pentax mount if you want more info.

Thanks!

I'm not sure the model is super wide II though, might be no I.

I too have the Super-Wide II, and agree that it's sharp (even wide open) but quite prone to flare. Here's some photos I've taken with mine on a K200D. I don't know anything about the "I version".

How cheap?

The circular fisheye is worth money if the condition is decent. Its a very limited lens though in that the novelty wears off pretty quickly.
