All manual fisheye lense. It really has 180° in the diagonal, not from left to right or bottom to top. I only have issues with the long distance sharpness. And because it is all manual getting the lense focuse the right area is sometimes pure luck. Beside that great on close range even in the edges of the picture.

It feels pretty solid and the images are pretty good too. I was going to buy the Sigma 2.8, but decided on this one because of the price. I don't regret it, but I'm sure the Sigma is twice as nice, yet twice the price. Its great for portraits, skateboarding and landscapes. Its super wide. So wide I've bumped objects in close up. CON - I can't seem to change the focus at all. It seems to always remain in focus. It's a good thing when I'm filming skating or taking super quick photos. But, you can't rack from one object to the other. Its not good for macro. Remember: no auto focus or any type of image stabilization! IS would be cool. And only being a 3.5, its not great in low light unless you really bump up your ISO. Overall, its a really good deal and I'm really enjoying it. I'm also using the Canon 24-105 L and a 50mm prime so its getting along nicely with my other lenses. Cool product and glad its not too expensive.
