Need fun and inspiration- get a Fisheye lens!

Summary: Lens is quite light and great to include when travelling to get some fun perspectives. Used it for some interiors as an alternative to an ultra-wide angle and with de-fish eyeing software and results look very professional.For a bit of fun especially with camera-shy kids you can get them to pull...
Summary: Even at minimum focus distance from subject, the subject looks like it's miles away from you; then you look away from the viewfinder and realise you're only about 30cm from the subject.With 180° FOV, watch out for your feet keep appearing in the shot!
Summary: I've been looking to buy a fisheye lens for a long time, but could never justify the price for something that doesn't get used all the time.I'm a full time sports photographer and want to use the lens for those special shots that come along every so often.
Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: Superb value and great results - just what I was looking for. Lovely fish-eye curves and good quality pictures. I was concerned it may be too cheap, but very pleased with it so far.Used with a Canon 7D.
Summary: 1st lens came faulty -needed calibration. Sent back to the seller. Ordered from Amazon directly now and received working lens. I like it. Tried already on Canon 60D, 650D and BMCC EF. bought it mainly for BMCC EF to get the fisheye look.
Summary: This was required for my business - price was a major consideration - quality was a lesser consideration - I was surprised by the quality which greatly exceeded my expectations All the testing ideas I found on the Web were tried and this lens did really well for the price.
Fantastic creative opportunities for low cost - well built metal lens

Summary: This is an awesome lens for the price. On an APS-c sensor it fills the field but gives a fish eye look. On a full frame it just gives a central circle of view. It provides 180degrees, the fish eye look is there if you want it or if you get the horizon right through the middle of the field of view it...
Summary: Considering you can get a fisheye for your iPhones now, or editing software like Adobe Lightroom for around £100, you'd think these could be a bit cheaper, but no. The fisheye does its standard job, but some of the settings you change on-lens doesn't show through the screen or viewfinder, so you're...
