      Product Information

      This circular fisheye lens produces circular images with an angle of
      view of 180� when attached to a full-frame digital or 35mm film SLR
      camera. It has a maximum aperture of F3.5, a minimum focusing
      distance of 13.5cm (5.5in?) and a maximum magnification of 1:4.6. The
      special fisheye design allows maximum creative expression. Sigma's
      super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common
      problem with digital cameras. The new lens power layout reduces color
      aberrations. Providing excellent image quality for digital and film
      SLR cameras. This lens can be used for the scientific applications
      such as the solid angle measurements of cloud distribution over the
      sky, the vegetation distribution of the rain forest canopy, etc., due
      to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces. This lens
      has a gelatin filter holder at the rear, allowing the use of gelatin
      filters.--
