Pros

Unit is lightweight and very smooth - great for travel applications and quickly changing in and out with other lenses

1 agrees

Considerably cheaper than competitors from Canon and Nikon with comparable quality - build quality, image clarity and color saturation are top-notch

1 agrees

Excellent for making spherical panoramas - smooth, rounded edge style makes stitching and aligning multiple shots very easy

1 agrees

Classic fishbowl design enables quick shot framing - "true" resolution significantly reduces the need to take multiple shots

Cons

AF speed is fairly slow - takes at least 2 seconds to move from closest distance to infinity, making the lens a poor choice for fast-paced photography

1 agrees

May be difficult to find correct exposure level in outdoor applications - users will likely be forced to use Manual mode to minimize dark corners and unwanted sunlight

1 agrees

180-degree visibility may be very difficult to handle for inexperienced users - can be hard to keep toes, elbows and unwanted shadows out of the shot

The Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye Lens is intended for creative photography, with a circular and curved distorted perspective. It creates an image with a 180-degree angle view surrounded by a black frame. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 5.3 inches and a magnification ratio of 1:4.6, allowing the lens to be up to ¾-inch from the subject. Its Super Multi-Layer lens coating minimizes flare and ghosting. A case is included.
