I am getting curious about this add-on. Not exactly cheap but can be a creative tool.
Can I have your opinion and experience / showphotos ?
What are the common problems you did face using them ?

Fisheye lens are usually used when you can't get the entire scene in the frame. It comes with a lot of distortion however. I would recommend using the stitch assist mode and four shot clockwise shooting. I have used this to shoot interiors of rooms and it does a great job. it is one of the most over looked features of the sx10 and sx1. try it and let me know what you think of it.http://pix.eosphotoman.com/byrdseyeview/h54bd9a2#h54bd9a2

nice house you have there.
Yes, the stitch mode is an option, but I can't squeeze that frame into a 4R print.
The fish eye distortion, well, yes also, just a creative touch. It is a bit of a lomo feel about this.

It was a bonus room in a real estate shoot I did for a friend. The room is very long and odd shaped. It was a 4 shot composite at 28mm using the sx1 in pan mode. then cropped to fix the lens distortion fix automated in Canon Photostitch software (hence the elongated look of the photo). I have used a .4 fisheye adapter on my DSLRs but the quality is not great, it threads on to the lens like a filter but HEAVIER. I have heard that this much weight on the sx10 or sx1 can damage the lens system 9IS I am guessing).
