I love my Canon gear, but recently decided to try a lens by a different manufacturer. I bought the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 circular fisheye. Check out some test shots here:​ (external link)

It's going to be a fun lens to fool around with.

Its probably one of those lenses that you will use for a bit when you first get it, you'll love the 'weird/interesting/unu​sual' images it produces, and then realise you have no specific use for it and never use it again. :-) :-)

Some nice 'weird/interesting/unu​sual' images you have taken so far... :-)

Of course, you may find you use it all the time and prove me wrong... ;)
