    This one is of decent quality.

    DCR-CF187PRO High Definition Circular Fisheye conversion lens for Digital & High Definition Cameras

    Note that by saying that I just mean that it is better than the usual garbage brands. The quality is nowhere near a real fisheye.

    The fisheye converter can be bought lesser than $100, For the price, the image quality is pretty much equivalent...Good for trying out "fishy" effects, but for long term, I'll still recommend getting a fisheye lens. But that will need you to prepare a budget of at least $600.

    The reason why people prefer to stay away from converters is (in general) most converters have pretty bad image quality in terms of CA and other stuffs.

    Hi TS (Shukrisuef),

    firstly welcome to Clubsnap

    If you've just gotten yourself a DSLR, perhaps you'd be better off using your existing gear to shoot more and familiarize yourself with both photography basics and the operation of your camera (what all the buttons do, etc). Why rush to buy something you know so little about?
    Exploring! :)

    I agree with ZerocoolAstra,

    It is important to start off photography on the right track. If you are new and really new ... the first thing is to get the basics right - know your camera, know the basics of operating an DSLR (instead of using Auto or P mode for everything - not implying that you will but just a suggestion).

    Fisheye lens might be a creative lens but it's application can also be limited. Try something more general or join outings to get to know more people who will share with you the right stuff so that you can appreciate photography better. As a hobby, photography is a long learning journey... thus, enjoy it instead of rushing into it.

    Cheers

    +1.

    Look for the cameralabs channel on YouTube, they have excellent beginner videos. If you can get past the crap, digitalrev tv has great videos too on how to take nice scenery shots, how to do fast action photography, etc.

    Also just start with your kit lens for a few months to figure out what you're missing. Randomly buying lenses is a very expensive thing. If you find yourself always struggling to get a picture of big buildings, can get an ultra wide angle like the 10-24. If you find yourself shooting in low light often and don't want to spoil the image with a flash (or if you cannot use the flash) can get a fast lens like the 35mm f1.8 or f1.4, etc.

    It also pays to learn about the holy trinity of aperture-shutter speed-iso.
