I have used SIFT with Common Lisp to process stereo images. I found  
CL to be very useful in analyzing the feature description vectors  
from SIFT to find matching features between up to a dozen images of  
the same scene shot from different angles.

Rather than implementing SIFT itself in CL, I integrated a C  
implementation. It would perhaps be useful to have a CL  
implementation of SIFT, but Lisp is particularly suited for the the  
higher level analysis of the feature description vectors generated by
