    Sorry if it’s obvious… full frame, crop sensor, what’s the story?

      For less effort than asking a question, you could have clicked the patent link and read the first line and seen the one of three english words APS-C.

      • Johnny Dough

        Yeah now go and take a good hard look at yourself, lol

        • http://simeonpilgrim.com/ Simeon Pilgrim

          What’s your point?

          • HotDuckZ

            If someone type APS-C, a lot of people no need to click a patent link. It’s very save the time.

          • http://simeonpilgrim.com/ Simeon Pilgrim

            I’m fully aware that answering the original question in the post would have saved time. I’m also aware how to find the answer for myself. What I was trying to do is teach the original poster how to solve there own issues.

            But if they were really smart, they would have answered there own question, and then posted:
            “Oh it’s for APS-C in case anyone else wanted to know”

            But it stead they just ask to have more info for free.

            So my question to Johnny was to ask why he assumed the first poster was “valid” but I was “rude”, where as the OP & Johnny are rude imho. But for calling OP out on this I’m the “bad man”

            You just sounded a bit uptight, is all. It’s not exactly an earth-shattering subject

          • McGraffix

            Ehm… well, maybe it’s not earth-shattering, but calling it “lazy behaviour” might suit the bill.
            It’s having other people do the work you just can’t be bothered to do. I mean: this IS the internet and if you can find this page and take the trouble of posting a comment, I’d assume you could also take just a little more time and investigate to try and find the answers to the questions you have. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, then is the time to go and ask for the help of others.
            Oh… remember: this is only worth 2 cents….

          • Axon

            Just to add further clarification, the patent link said “APS-C mirrorless”.

          • Kynikos

            Oh thank you so much for your kind pedantry. You must be a lot of fun at parties.

            Thanks Johnny–but you can’t fix arrogance.

          • Guest

            “their” own issues, teacher.

          • http://simeonpilgrim.com/ Simeon Pilgrim

            Yeah, spelling mistakes invalidate complete points, I get it, it’s the internet.

    • Mr. Mamiya

      Counterquestion: who cares? It will fill the frame on a crop camera. But there have always been (circular) fisheye lenses with 8 mm or 6 mm that never filled the frame.
      On a full frame camera it will be an intermediate and have a circumcised circle. That’ll make an ideal lens for shooting 360×180 panoramas on FX. Just like my 10,5/2.8 DX-Nikkor on my D800E.

  • Someone

    I think the most interesting feature is VC (vibration control).

    I can hardly imagine stabilized fisheye lens.

    • Frank

      My Pentax has been allowing stabilized fisheyes and ultra wides since day one :D

    “EOS HI” Coming soon

    TAMRON F1.8 10mm Fisheye patent seems even more interesting …
