Whoa, love this! The pattern and the regularity of it all.. Really suits the fisheye perspective.

As do I, looks cool. :cool: Damn, I have to stop lurking around this thread; I think I'm getting the fisheye-lens-fever...

I had another wee walk around Glasgow today (while my better half did some shopping) and stuck my 8mm on to see if I could have some fun. Here are a few of the shots:

I am still figuring how to focus this lens. Everything seems so clear and "sharp" on the viewfinder of my 7D.

For outdoors, I think what most people do (myself included) is use about f8 and set it to infinity, since the lens has such a large depth-of-field.

For indoors, I try to estimate the distance to the subject and set it on the focus lens barrel (there is a scale there for feet and meters). Again, since it has such a big DOF, you only need an approximation.

For large scene, infinity is still not the best option for me.

Liveview 10X to confirm, still a bit of turn on the focus ring just before touching infinity.

Will try again.
