fish eye vs wide angle lens
I'm wondering if assuming I'm to buy either a fish eye or wide angle lens, which one is more useful?
Even for wide angle lens, would a prime lens (20 or 24mm) or a zoom (17-35mm) be more useful?

unless it is a full frame fisheye lens.... i.e Nikon 16mm, Canon 15mm, Sigma 15mm lenses. These will still you a full frame pic with 180 degree field of view.

for Circular Fish-Eye you are looking at something like the Sigma 8mm, Nikon 6mm or 8mm for example. These will give the rounded pic.
I can't wait till I get myself another full frame fisheye lens.

what's the difference between full frame and circular fish eye, in terms of the picture they produce. Better still, could you post some pic or some url to demonstrate the picture they produce?
