This autofocus circular fisheye lens is designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras with an APS-C size image sensor. It produces circular image with digital SLR cameras. The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch and maximum magnification of 1:6 make it particularly useful for close-up photography. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass, Super Multi-Layer Coating and the inner focusing system creates high image quality. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus override.
This lens is the first circular fisheye lens designed for APS-C size digital SLR cameras. It produces circular image with a diameter of 12.3mm and angle of view of 180 degree in all directions, making it ideal for capturing 360 degree panoramas.
Due to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces, this lens can be used for scientific applications such as solid angle measurements of cloud distribution over the sky, or vegetation distribution of the rain forest canopy.
The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch and maximum magnification of 1:6 make it particularly useful for close-up photography.
It is an ideal lens for Astrophotography and Aurora photography. The large depth of field enables photographers to emphasize the subject.
SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass provides effective compensation of color aberration. Sigma's Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting. It is equipped with inner focusing system that creates high definition and excellent image quality over the whole frame.
The HSM ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.
*AF will not function if the Pentax camera bodies do not support HSM.
