Hello,
has somebody experience with the Sigma 15 mm Fisheye lens??
I want to buy this lens for funny portraits, but also for pano photography (in combination with a Canon 5D).

Is this good supportet by Autopano? How much pictures are necessary to shot a full 360° pano?

best Greetings from Germany - Jan-

Not sure why one would choose the Sigma 15mm fisheye over the Canon 15mm fisheye.

Yes

Min. of 6-around plus zenith and optional nadir.

Hey Mediavets,
thank you for the interesting link!

The Canon 15 mm is no more available. It is not produced any more.

Greetings - Jan -

Oh, I see - it seems still to be fairly widely available from camera retailers in the UK.

Hello Jan,

for international reasons I do write in English, although I am German too.

I do use the 15mm Sigma for Pentax on a K-5 and K-7, i.e. an APS-C Camera with a crop factor of ca. 1.6.
I really love this lens, as it is as sharp as it can be. I would not give it away. I can strongly recommed it. For the price it is a real bargain.


Beste Grüsse aus der Moselmetropole Trier

Georg

I am very satisfied with this lens (Canon mount). Diagonal fisheye on 5D,
used as a light rectilinear lens on a 7D (de-fishing in Lightroom or Photoshop).

Hello,
thank you for your answers.
Today, I ordered the Sigma 15 mm. Unfortunately I found no dealer with the Canon 15 mm...

Greetings - Jan -

How did the Sigma 15mm lens work out for you?
