Opinion:Purchased for Sony mirrorless (nex3n and a6000), for photos "alternatives." The distortion of this 8mm is great for parties and photos different from usual. I am a super beginner but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of photos taken with this lens. I found only a little 'difficult to focus since the pronounced distortion makes it difficult to identify a point, but for landscapes and still people over 2m, infinity is perfect. In addition, the brightness of the lens allows excellent night photos. unbeatable value for money.
