Hey, I'm pretty new to this forum so I apologize if this seems like a dumb question or if it’s been answered already.

I'm looking for a lens to give a real fisheye effect on a crop camera (40D). I've used the canon 15mm fisheye and although it’s an awesome lens I’m not getting that 180 degree (or close to) fisheye effect. Is there one out there that will, even ifs not canon quality?

Thanks!

Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

These were all taken with the Sigma 10mm/2.8 on a 40D at 2009 Bathurst 1000

The Tokina 10-17mm fisheye zoom is well worth a look if you can track one down.

Many example photos of Samyang 8mm F 2.8 Fisheye in this set (sub $300.00)-note-the fisheye shots have been defished with fisheye hemi plugin for photoshop:

There are some great shots on this thread. Quick question: How often do you use these lenses? They really create some great images, but they seem to be limited in their application.

+2 I own the tokina 10-17 and it is phenomenal. Amazing build quality and IQ. Good AF and reasonably fast at f 3.5 at ten mm.

+3 for the Tokina. Own this lens for years now and it has always served me well. Due to the zoom its also a versatile lens.

You don't want to over use the effect, true, but I often carry the 10-17 as it can lend a more intereting dynamic perspective when I'm shooting an electronic art show and I want to capture the art within the context of the venue and crowd.

Thanks. I was looking at that lens on B&H's site, and it doesn't seem unreasonable for a good lens, but I have to wonder how many shots it would see. For regular use, it's a good deal. For a paperweight, it's a bit steep.

I like the Peleng 8mm inexpensive lens and well worth it if you mainly plan on using the fisheye just for fun. plus it is built like a russian tank.
