 +  * estimated retail price 350 USD
 +  * in my use from 6/2005 to 10/2008
 +  * was my first fisheye lens ever and filled that need well
 +===== Pros =====
 +  * like any fisheye lens this lens can offer lots of fun
 +  * a real classic
 +  * resonable sharp when stopped down to f/8 or f/11
 +  * easy to focus manually due to huge depth-of-field
 +  * M42 mount version can be mounted to different camera systems via adapters
 +===== Cons =====
