Item Description
Selling this full frame fisheye lens as I do not use this much. The optics are Mint, and the body i would rate a 10, with very light user marks.

This lens is made in Japan, and I have been very impressed by the optics. Usually for fisheye lenses the emphasis is on the distortion effect and not the sharpness, but I've always been amazed by the IQ of this lens. Its already sharp wide open, and when stopped down the resolution is excellent. Nice colour rendition too.

The fisheye effect is reduced but still visible on DSLRs, and you can use it as a wide angle lens as such, removing the distortion by post processing. Or you can retain it for the effect. At 28mm, with clever composition, you can hide the distortion effectively.

Rare and hard to find - great piece to have esp. if you use film as well as digital bodies. Will add pictures of this lens tonight.
