Cheers... nice image! Where was this photo taken?
Somewhere in Sydney, AU.
Not sure what you mean by a "fixed" lens hood on the 8-16- it is entirely removable, but when attached to the lens it is radially symmetric so there is no advantage to rotating it one way or the other.
Don't know where you get your facts from buddy, on the Sigma 8-16mm the hood is fixed. On the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye the hood is removable.
Love the 8-15 Fish~ Bought it on a whim and have not regretted it.
I found UWA+Fisheye a difficult lens to learn to use. But once you know it, they're a beaut!
Can you post the full resolution 13mm shot? I'm very curious to see the resolution.
Hmm. Sadly, after I put the post up I deleted all the images.
I'm selling my 50d today and so after today I won't have a crop sensor camera. 13mm is shot where the 8-16mm says "14mm". The photos uploaded here weren't on tripod so it's not "exact" either.
I'm borrowing my friend's Kenko 1.4 TC to try it out on the 6d with the UWA as some post said it looked okay.
When I do that I'll upload the full res pics and link them to here.
The sigma 8-16 has more bendy-wall distortion than the canon 10-22, but, I can use the Sigma on the FF whereas my buddy that bought the canon will be doomed when he goes FF.
