Sigma 15mm EX f2.8 Fisheye

Hi all, one of these has appeared in a local (Hobart, Tasmania, OZ) shop for Aus$450, about US$370 and is in mint condition. I could probably bargain down to Aus$400. Any comments on the beast? I already have the 10-20 but have an old fashioned preference for primes.

It is a real good deal David, Dirtcheapcameras.com.au has it for almost 1000A$
(http://www.dirtcheapcameras.com.au/SLR-LENSES/SIGMA-1/WIDE-LENSES-1/AF-15MM-...AGONAL-FISHEYE), besides, the Sigma 15mm can go with FF cameras while the 10-20 can't.

From all appearances, it is a great lens.

Thanks for your responses guys. Lens turns out to be an EX not EX DG. I have decided to stick with my 10-20 and reserve the LBA for a later attack.

An EX lens is still a very good Sigma lens - this price is almost too good to be true. Although 15mm is not very wide for a FE on a digital crop.

Try the DA 10-17 and you'll see a much bigger difference in FE effect...
