Circular fisheye or full frame fisheye?
Circular is 180 degrees in all directions and full frame is 180 degrees across the diagonal.

Rokinon 8mm from all that I've read and heard is a great choice. Good optics and not a huge price (under $300). I've been considering getting one myself lately...check out the pictures in the lens sample archive here and user posted pics on amazon.

I have the Rokinon 8mm and it works great on my 7D. It is manual focus, but with a fisheye you can almost set the focus once and shoot all day. Check out this shot: http://www.flickr.com …/in/set-72157625585297475 (external link)

With the lost price and high build quality, you won't regret getting it.

Mark,

neat photos, really clean and an unusual perspective.

i have the walimex 8mm, which is probably the same as the rokinon. it's fully manual, but since working with "hyperfocality" is really easy at 8mm it is not a big deal. ton of fun, quality is decent for the price. i shot a lot with it last weekend, when i come around to pp the images maybe i'll post some here.

I got mine through Amazon.

It came in about a week and the price was right. $290ish.

If you want cheap, the Samyang 8mm is a good one. The main distributer in the USA is Rokinon I believe.

Agreed. I love mine. Crazy sharp and the zoom is nice to have. Built like a tank too.
