So I just
started shooting about a month or two ago and finally got the hang of it and learned terms and concepts about a month ago. I'm currently using a Canon Rebel XT with the standard 18-55mm kit lens and a Tamron 55-200mm/4-5.6. Right now, I'm just shooting as a hobby; nothing too serious (usually just pictures of friends and family and the occasional "artsy" close-up).
For a while now, I've been meaning to pick up a new lens, since I'm getting pretty bored of alternating between the macro and kit lens. I want a lens that'll look sharp and could be used on a regular basis.
I've been wanting to cop a fisheye, and I finally found one that is somewhat within my budget (I was ecstatic when I saw the price, since most fisheye lenses I saw went for $400-1000):Rokinon FE8MC 8mm/3.5
I've also heard good things about the Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens
So what do you guys think? Which lens should I cop? The fisheye is about $100 more than the 50mm/1.8 lens. Any other suggestions?
