I paired up my 15MM f/2.8 EF Fisheye with my Canon 5D at the Udvar-Hazy A&S Annex at Dulles Airport yesterday to see if I could capture an entire aircraft in one shot.

I found that if I keep the subject in the middle of the frame and crop at a 10x4 or 10x6 ratio I can get decent results. Here are two samples: The B-29 "Enola Gay" and an Air France Concorde...note the Connie Tri-Tail as a bonus behind the Concorde :)

Thanks, guys. I have not tried a pano approach yet. I did some a while back with my 30D and the Canon 10-22MM but I like the 15MM shots much better. It is easy to put the subject in the middle of the frame and then use the 8x4 crop ratio to focus in on the center..;.kinda like a "pseudo-pano" :-) The 5D's resolution really helps here.
