Yea, not bad but mine developed fungus inside the lens after 2 years.

But, value for $... Fk yea!

Only thing is i found that the photos werent the clearest, had to up the contrast in photoshop to bring the vibrance back

sure 16mm on a crop body but if you've shot with one i dont know that you could possibly want anything wider!

I have a 10-22 canon and a 5D II that I use a 16-35 on and yeah 16mm is plenty wide.. Would like a FF 8mm for some weird wide angle shit

Is this for an SLR or digital video cam?

 

If u want MEGA tight arse ness, get an OLD analouge lense from a video camera, and DUCT tape it backwards. Worked well for me for a few months. - auto focus ftw.

 

bear in mind youtube quality:

anyone tried the tokina 11-16mm 2.8

 

It's not a fisheye but super wide angle. It's meant to be the best build, optic quality wide angle for dx bodied cameras, even up there with the nikkor 12-24mm
