The 4.5mm f/2.8 EX DC Circular Fisheye HSM is the new perfect lens. The Lens has SLD glass that minimizes color aberration for better quality of photo.
The Sigma 4.5mm f/2.8 EX DC Circular Fisheye HSM lens is equipped with an inner focusing system that creates high definition and good image quality over the whole frame.
The DC Circular Fisheye HSM Lens large aperture value produces a bright image in the viewfinder and allows photographers to take pictures in low light conditions, making it an ideal lens for Astrophotography and Aurora photography. Due to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces, this lens can be used for scientific and arts applications such as solid angle measurements of cloud distribution over the sky or vegetation distribution of the forest.
This autofocus Sigma 4.5mm f/2.8 EX DC Circular Fisheye HSM Lens has an angle of view of 180 degrees in all directions.
The lens is exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras with the APS-C size image sensor. When used in conjunction with digital SLRs with APS-C size image sensors, it produces circular image within the frame.
The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch and maximum magnification of 1:6 make it particularly useful for close-up photography. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass provides effective compensation of chromatic aberration. Sigma Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting. The (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.
