I rented it once, when our now 3-yr old Malamute was a pup. After that week or so, I had to have one. I put it on my Marketplace watchlist and got one for about $350 or so. Yeah, it's not my most-used lens, but it is a lot of fun.

It's an amazingly fun lens, but rather "special purpose". AT 17mm it's almost rectilinear, but only almost - and at 10mm it's very much a fish-eye. Razor-sharp through and through, though.

It's not my most used lens, but it's amazingly fun
