First post on here and to be honest i know very little about cameras and photography compared to what ive seen on here so far.

Just a quick question.

Im looking for a fisheye lens that will fit on my canon 500D. Not looking to spend thousands of dollars but am interested in getting one that has great resolution and allows both manual and auto focus. Planning a trip overseas and would like to take one along.

Any help or links to ebay or any other sites i could buy from? Shops in Aus, Vic?

Thanks.

I use a Tokina 10-17 and it is a great lens. Under water it has few peers and is extremely popular. I know there is a Rokkinen (Sp?) 8mm that is cheap and well liked. You can see some of the Tokina shots at my link below.

That would be my suggestion if you can live with out AF. Honestly with a lens as wide as the Rokinon FE you don't need it. Set the aperture to f8, focus to infinity, then just shoot away and damn near everything will be in focus.

It's a great lens. Cheap and sharp (check out the photo sample thread for sample images.

My suggestion is the Sigma 10mm 2.8 fisheye, or the Samyang 8mm if you want to spend less.

I haven't had much experience with other fisheyes, but I do know a lot about the Tokina 10-17, it's a great (very fun) lense. I recommend it.

Thanks guys, been looking into the Tokina 10-17mm.

Does anyone know if there are any major differences between the one without the hood, compared to the older one with the hood attached?

Worth even worrying about or not?
