    what is the subject you are shooting? Fisheye for landscape and architectural. 17mm for big group photos. Or if dont have any, just take 2 or more shots and stich them together.

    heck cant vote, i would go for 17mm too (if lower even better!)

    had the gd fortune of checking out output from 3 different FishEyes..adn several other such shots from unknown pcs.

    at first the shot orientation and extreme barrel distortion attracts me to view the image, but after coming back for a 2nd glimpse, it lost much of its strong appeal on me for some reasons. too much curves??

    of cos i have seen some memorable FE shots, but i kinda think these are the odd few rather than the norm.

    i figure if i do indeed get to own a FE, it could be an infrequently used lens, but one that is most interesting to use whenever i really feel like it. hopefully then i would have mastered the 'right' techniques and perspective to appreciate it fully.

    just my two pennies..
    anyone like to share their FE masterpcs here

    FE and wide angle are two diff lens, not all FE can give good angle coverage like 180degree.
    90 degree for a wide angle is consider very good.

    For FE is better not to tilt the lens as there tools can defish the shot after that.

    I was refering to full frame.... haha.... so 17mm is based on 1.6x crop factor??
    which means 20mm is enough la?? actually which focal length can get >90 deg view angle?

    Default Re: If 28mm is not wide enough

    just a question though... a wide angle lens means the subject will all become very small??? lets say i wanna do street photography and capture people's expression as well for example...

    move the subject (people) nearer to you lor. This way you can capture the background as well as a good size of the person you are taking.

    just my 2 rupiah thought

    Try the Sigma 12-24 EX DG on a FF camera , how wide it can go will really blow you away.
    However, that said, extreme care has to be taken when composing your shot though.
    Added bonus being it can be use on a 1.6X or 1.5X LF DSLR.
    The downside of it is that you won't be able to use any normal filter on it except gelatin ones.
