Here is my first real shot (other than goofy test pics at the house) with my Rokinon version. I still need to perform the focus calibration.

I think you have to get "lucky" and have the lightning strike while you are taking the long exposure, right? I mean, you cannot just wait for it to flash and THEN take the picture, right?

I know they have special lightning trigger devices that will detect a lightning flash and activate the camera's shutter at that exact instant. Then you don't need a very long exposure, i think, because lightning itself is plenty bright, of course.

Take 30 second exposures at night one after another and cross your fingers.

Here is one image from my condo in CO (15-85mm lens or I'd post the picture too.)...http://www.flickr.com …/in/set-72157629216851131 (external link)

Very nice, BB. That's a good technique to know. You might even get a picture of yourself going up in flames after being struck by the lightning! ;)

I am considering to use this lens for video.

My friend is trying to make a automotive rig to put on his drifting car to use for video footage. I a cheap lens because it is likely to get damaged in those harsh environment of drifting. This seems to fit the bill.

How is fisheye lenses at infinity? Is there distortion?

The automotive rig pole will be about 4ft from the car, so I expect some distortion there, but I am concerned about if there is going to be distortion of the background (infinity focus area) of the lens.

Is this good for video? I do not really want the fish-eye effect. I looked through the tread, but I could not tell if the images were corrected for distortion in post processing or not.
