Looks like some have corner sharpness troubles at 12mm... What are the alternatives in the same focal length / price range?
AFAIK, there are three alternatives -
* Sigma 8-16mm on an APS-C body. Uncertain regarding quality.
* Defish a fisheye lens (circular, diagonal, maybe Samyang 8mm stereographic fisheye).
* If the subject is static, stitch photos from a longer lens.
