    Default Which fisheye lens to recommend

    I am looking for a fisheye len for my ff camera. Is zenitar 16 mm fisheye a good choice or should I invest more to get a sigma 15mm or Canon 15mm? Can Anyone who own a zenitar care to share his /her experience with this len?

    how often are u going to use it? fisheye lenses are a novelty, but imo it really becomes irritating if over-used.

    if u dun foresee yourself using it all that much, can try getting a zenitar. i have the nikon mount version. pretty decent lens for its price, tho not pin-sharp like nikon's 16mm.

    Yeah, I second nightwolf75's opinion. Its like a nice to have but not a must have lens.

    canon alternative might be quite expensive for an occassional use. like what the others have mentioned, zenitar is a good option.
