sorry i didn't mean to mis-inform and suggest that a lens creates noise as i know it doesn't... i should have worded it differently.

whats everyone shoot with this at ?

i just set f8 and focus to infinity...

I also am using f8, although I use f8 with just about all my lenses, except in special circumstances (need more or less depth of field, for example).

For focusing outdoors I also set it at infinity. For indoors I try to guess the distance to main subject and set it at around that mark on the focus barrel. Seems to work, since there is so much dof.

Your supermarket picture gave me a big laugh, Seattle. Nice idea, for sure!

Thanks RAH1861! I also set mine to f8 seem to get very good results.

I took my FishEye to my son's basketball game tonight and got a few shots at the beginning then some @ half time. I mainly just tried it out in the POOR lighting to see how it would do. Not bad IMO, but the focus needs some work and I need to find a better balance between ISO and exposure. They play again Friday and I think I'll sit near courtside and take pics most of the game, but my new Canon 24-70F2.8L will be arriving tomorrow and I'm sure I'll want to try it out too. I'm not sure why I'm trying other lenses out because I don't have my Canon 70-200F2.8L II IS figured out yet. :rolleyes:

Anyhow, here's a pregame shot with the Fisheye effect intact;

Here's a shot with the FishEye effect adjusted in LR3;

I think I like the FishEye effect better.

I do too ! Why fisheye, if you're going to Unfish ?

I like using my new Opteka to emphasize disproportionate scale. Here I am at the end of a block of limestone, at an abandoned quarry.

I suppose so you can go really WIDE without the funky fish effect.

I agree that generally I like the fish effect from a fisheye better than the results from defishing. When you defish, objects on the sides get really loooong and can look pretty odd and silly. At least with the original image people know it's a specialized view.
