I just bought a Rokinon 8mm fish. I couldn't justify the Canon and I shoot a crop body. For a $260 lens, it is a blast to shoot with. I disagree with 4x4Rock. I carried just this lens around for a day in Washington DC and never got tired of it. It is just fun to shoot with.

I dont think the issue is getting tired of shooting with one, but your clients might get tired of looking at them. Its a specialty lens, but more than a couple shots per gallery and it begins to look like a gimmick.

I bought one for weddings, and love to use it for portraits, but sparingly. The reason i bought it was i have been second shooting a lot, and it adds value to me.

Fisheyes can be great lenses for people who know how to use them. No you don't want to take a whole photo album worth of pictures with just a fisheye... but if you know when to pull it out and how to frame with it. It's a great tool!

Check out the Fisheye Zoom (external link) while you're at it, should be out this year. It's up near the top of my list.

Now I understand that the Rokinon (Samyang/Walimex/whate​ver other brand it's sold as) is only for crop cameras, isn't it?

Also I understand my name is not Mark.

So therefore I understand I should have no business posting pictures in this thread.

But well...

there you go...

(Fisheyes can be loads of fun if you are willing to experiment, but they are hardly walkaround lenses) :cool:
