But it is heavy and requires a panohead with a long spherical arm.
As far as I remember the setting is around 135mm on the D700
And you need of course more than the 6+1 images which you need for a fisheye.

See the 12-24 fullframe, reported to be one of the most incredibly good ultrawides ever. One over 3 is not perfect. They are not lens to be bought 2nd hand.;-)2012/4/27 Roger D Williams <roger@...>From the experience of users in Japan, Sigma has an excellent record in admitting poor product performance and prompt replacement within the warranty period. If I was disappointed with the performance of a lens that others had found "outstanding" I would be back at the ship demanding a quality check and either adjustment or replacement. This might be harder for purchasers overseas... How would you pay for the to-ing and fro-ing of products that proved to be within spec?That said, they do appear to have a quality control problem. My own 8mm f/3.5 Sigma is on a par with the excellent 10.5mm Nikon fisheye.Roger W.

Probably not. At f/22 diffraction will be large enough to prevent moiré...
