    Heh heh. I think the answers will shock you.

    First one taken with Sigma 15mm fisheye lens and corrected with Panorama Tools. Here's the original:


    Second one taken handheld (what, landscapes should be taken with tripod only?) with Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 at 200mm and cropped! Here's the original:

    very nice, glad to see you post scenery shots and no wonder you bought a Sigma 15mm. How much did u pay for it?

    You're using a D30? so it becomes a 24mm "fisheye"?

    Yah, 24mm semi-fisheye.
    Am looking into getting a secondhand EOS 88 or 66 to get the full effect.

    The picture was corrected using Panorama Tools which is a freeware you can download from here:

    Not very user friendly, but you can check the FAQ.

    The tutorial on how to correct fisheye is here:

    You have to use 92 instead of 142 as the HFOV, because of the D30 cropping factor.

    Any reasons to choose 15mm fisheye instead of wide angle 14mm Sigma?

    Cheaper. Much cheaper. And smaller. Also, I like the distortion. Rectilinear is not important in people shots. I have some really funny ones of the kids which I'll post later. By the way the Sigma 15mm is a diagonal fisheye (180 degrees diagonally), which means there's NO vignetting, even with a full frame 35mm. I was surprised to find this out at the Sigma website and it sealed my decision to get this.

    Wow, very surprised indeed! Orrr ic... So the 2nd image was cropped to give it a panoramic effect. The edited image definitely looks more punchy and a lot sharper. The wonders of PS! Such pretty big round sun. Very beautiful... wish we could catch this kind in Singapore.
