Hi guys(that means girls too),I have a combo on the way...with about NO distortion.
Think I heard it's 103 degrees.I was hoping it was MORE degrees.

My 8-16 on my Nikon d5100 I think is MORE degrees.

Just thought of something - pics will have to be in 'Non-Nikon camera'.

Still - I plan to partially use this camera for pano.

Happy day - Larry

Update - I looked it up...confirmed with two,B+H and Ken Rockwell... it is 110 degrees ...YES !!!!

I still like Olympus 7-14mm 109 degrees on 4:3 format...now this can ABOUT match it.

...It's a GOOD day !

Add - OK - I looked up the Sigma 8-16...and it's 114.5 degrees.
Conclusion ; all these are good for pano cut outs(though they cut pixels)also including my Tokina 10-14mm
Saving ya shots and work - joining/stitching,at the cost of pixels.Easy and fast too.

And if ya have a high pixel camera - like I do D5100...I'd be cropping to about 8 pixels...which is useable.

Getting back to 35mm...half that frame is about useable.Try asa 1 or 200 film.
