    You like your Sigma? I've heard alot of negative things about Sigmas so I've never purchased one. It's comforting to see this; they're much more affordable.

    Ive used the nikkor 10.5mm fish, i thought it was amazing. Wish they didnt have such a high price tag, but im sure ill pick one up eventualy, i would rather have fisheye distortion than SWA distortion (from 10-20mm) in my skate shots.

    Same reasons all lenses are expensive. Plus, when trying to get a unique look you have to use special designing and construction. If you want cheap you can get one of those screw on fisheyes
