reviewswhat are people saying

"I have used this lens for outdoor nature photography and indoors for wide angle shots. I use Capture NX which easily converts the photos back to a normal looking view. I look forward to trying many new things with this lens."

"The Fisheye effect of this lens is great, almost a 180° rectangular view. You can not put a filter on the front of this, it has a gel filter holder in the rear."

This lens is compatible with APS-C (1.5x crop factor) cameras such as the Nikon D7200, Nikon D3400 and Nikon D5600. However, this lens won't auto focus on cameras such as the Nikon D5500 that are lacking focus motors.

Why it says that angle of view is 136° when it is DX lense and it should be 180°?
And how does it behave on Nikon d5300, I mean how is manual focusing, precise?
