im just starting out in photography..
i wanna get a fisheye lens..
something to take pictures like this..
but i don't wanna spend too much money..
is there any good ones u guys have used n would recommend?
and how much?
Sorry but you guys are all wrong! Helpermonkey, your camera's sensor is a 1.6x size. Buying Canon's 15 2.8 wouldn't be at all fishy for your camera, it would just look horribly distorted. the 15mm is for a camera like the 5d which is a full frame.
My backup body (Canon 30d) has a Tokina 10-17mm lense which is the best a fisheye will get for your camera. its also not as pricey as the Canon 15mm.
PS. DO NOT get the Sigma 8mm. its so bad I can't even look at the photos without gagging ?)
wow.... that sigma 15mm looks like crap...
would the 8mm look so horrible even with other brands of cameras? yikes...
Thank God for someone bringing all of this up...
Yes seriously. the guy that started this thread, showed us an example photo of what kind of photo he would like to achieve. the 8mm is so wide that you get the circular picture that is not at all wanted, unless you would like to crop it out, making a "less" detailed photo. Ive been taking photos, and getting money out of it, so please don't tell me that im wrong about this lense when i've tried it, and seen results from it. I have also had fellow pros share their feedback. So unless what you see in the photos (the black around it making it a circular kind of image) is what you would like, then go ahead, buy it.
what do you guys think about this for my EOS 400D??
