reviewswhat are people saying

"This is a must have if you are a serious photographer. The images are great!"

bhphotovideo.com

"The image quality of this lens is outstanding and the lens comes with a strong and durable little holder or case to protect it against bumps and knox when storing it"

bhphotovideo.com

"The only drawback is the resolution after stitching (around 9000x4500 vs 11000x55000 on canon 10-22) but for most applications with panoramas it's perfectly ok."
