Pros: Price, construction, good colors, yield in the center

Cons: not exceptional edges, but for what cost do you expect?

Opinion: I took this lens to have a cheap wide angle to mount on the Sigma SD10, trying to build a foveon kit at limited costs, even more. As a wide angle on the Sigma it would be equivalent to about 28mm. I say it would be equivalent because the distortion is considerable (it is a fisheye ...) and therefore wanting to use it as a wide angle in certain photos must then be corrected via software in postproduction, and therefore you have to frame a little wide, because part of the frame will go away. So the equivalent 28mm is reduced a bit. On the other hand, using it on aps-c the drop in yield at the edges is shown much less (for obvious reasons). The color rendering is not bad and also the sharpness, if you close the aperture a little, is fine and does not sacrifice the yield of the foveon: the sensor is not very dense. How it goes on sensors with many megapixels I can't say, but neither do I care. Used on the 6D, however, it defends itself: the sharpness drops at the edges but remains good in the center (we are always talking about a 20mpx sensor) and it is still a fun toy, even if I do not plan to use it much. But should I feel like fisheye, for occasional uses it is more than fine (and then who is it that makes non-occasional use of fisheye?). The front cap of my specimen for now is fine, and along with the lens have also arrived three colored filters for the BN, to be mounted at the rear. I don't think I'll use them, but maybe someone might be interested. Using it with adapters you have to lock the piston that transmits the automatic of the diaphragm, otherwise the lens will always be at full aperture, unless you use adapters that block it, but I avoided using this type of adapter so as not to increase the draft too much. Locking the piston is a half-hour job, perfectly reversible, in case you want to resell it or use it on old analog cameras. In short, for what it costs it is good, solid and fun.

Pros: Great value. Smooth and precise ghiere. Good sharpness in the center

Cons: Soft and scant at the edges, but recoverable diaphragm

Opinion: I arrived again from Russia, after a month of waiting, but cmq respecting the indicated times. The price of the new little differs from the used for which I preferred to go on the safe. At T.A. it is very soft and has a kind of flou effect, which disappears immediately closing at f/4. the best you get from 5.6 up and while not coming to the excellent sharpness of the Nikon analogue, it has a yield more than dignified, especially when you think about the paltry cost. The dials of manual fire are fluid and without uncertainty, the blades of the diaphragm in their inaccurate movement. Compared to the Nikon 10.5 Dx is definitely lower than the edges species open, but closing recovers enough at the edges and in the middle, being cmq a FF I prefer it to the Dx. Col 16 Nikon obviously there is no match, but if you do not have big needs, considering that it costs 1/5 of his majesty, I would say that he has his reason.

Pros: sharp from f5 up, but always uncertain edges, smooth and above all adjustable in focus. vintage taste

Cons: weight, but you know that the glass weighs. light cap dancer and comes off easily

Opinion: I bought out of curiosity this old lens paid 100 euros with m42 attack and I have to say that mounted on my fuji xpro 2 I'm having fun. Of course you have to take into account that it is always an old lens, but I assure you that you will enjoy it. A little uncomfortable to carry because it is as heavy as a stone and in comparison to modern plastic lenses makes you laugh a bit. When I bought it the old owner had not warned me of an infinite focus defect, that is, all the photos taken from a certain distance were completely out of focus. Thinking I had taken a rip-off I had put it in the drawer, but dismantling in the web I came across a forum dedicated to vintage lenses where I discovered that this lens could present these problems of infinite maf due to the incorrect assembly of the front of the lens. In fact, by following the instructions and removing the rubber dial dul barrel, you can access three small screws that loosen them allow the correct positioning of the numbered ring of distances and consequently put the focus to infinity.

Pros: Solid construction, of the past, with exceptional sharpness from f5.6 onwards, but already good since 2.8.

Cons: Nothing.

Opinion: Bought used for Nikon with maf confirmation chips, in excellent condition, at a great price (Photo Mattioli). Exceptional value for money, with nothing to envy to similar optics with a tenfold cost. You do not feel the lack of autofocus: by shooting in hyperfocal, no image is to be discarded. To be had in the kit, despite the infrequent use.

Pros: Sharpness, compact, solid feel, price

Cons: Front plug (a detail)

Opinion: Taken in September 2016, new model 2015, straight from Mother Russia for a total of 170 euro.rnDa immediately feels solid and well made. Used on the field I was very pleased. The use of fx and did not notice vignetting even at RT. Usable without af / 2.8 problems becomes good at f / 5.6 and very good at f / 8-11. It is a toy for the cost and the quality is absolutely valid to have fun with some personality photos but usable, if kept in a bubble and without vertical lines at the edges nearby, such as wide angle. Good resistance to flare, in the mean of wide angles. I had the same focal length fisheye Nikkor and honestly not known differences worth noting. My judgment is positive and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a very good fish at an affordable price since new. All right, does not have the coat of arms of the nikkor ... but the quality is sometimes spending less does not mean to be disappointed.
