reviewswhat are people saying

"The Sigma 15mm 2.8 is really a very fine lens. The build is first rate and the glass is in the upper tier of the lot."

bhphotovideo.com

"Razor sharp fast focus, small enough to carry all the time and now that I take a few special shots on my jobs, this lens always helps to close a sale."

bhphotovideo.com

"Not sure what the point of this lens is, but it's like shooting through a key hole on my Nikon D700 and doesn't work at all on my D5000."

I have the d750, looking at picking up either this lens or a rokinon 12mm f2.8 manual focus. What exactly is the problem with the d750's autofocus in live view with this lens?

Great lens, very sharp, and light, focusing under 6". Problem is with D750 with autofocus with live view. Lens not compatible with Sigma USB dock to update software.
