Review: Cosmology from cosmic shear observations

Mean and 68% error bars for the parameter  $\sigma_8 (\Omega_{\rm m}/0.3)^\alpha$, for various cosmic shear observations, plotted as function of their publication date (first arXiv submission). Data points are second-order statistics (circles), third-order (diamonds), 3D lensing (pentagons), galaxy-galaxy lensing (+ galaxy clustering; triangle), and CMB (squares).
