    Default Zenitar 16mm fisheye

    Saw quite a few reviews on this lens... Mostly from people overseas. Wonder if anyone based locally has used this lens? Thinking of getting an FD-mount one to bring to a mountaineering trip. Any advice? Any idea of the street price or is it even available in local shops? How about second hand prices? Thanks alot!

    you can try Fotografix at Lucky chinatown, they have it, street market is around 300, but better you check first, its a good lens.

    you can check http://www.kievcamera.com/camera.php?ID=15 they also deliver to overseas, last was check with them and total is about the same if you buy here, just email them enquiry first.

    think someone once held a MO for this lens b4. but, there seems to be some problems for the canon EF mount. but, the last i saw, it was solved already.

    was thinking of getting a 16mm too for my 300D (16*1.6=~28mm). just a nice WA for my cam.

    oh yeah. the kiev camera website seems to be down....

    It would be nice only if you don't mind the distortion.

    yeah.... guess have to live with it lah. sigh... problem of the 1.6 crop factor... so far, not counting the kit lens, i only have 28mm on my 28-90mm zoom, which only give ~40mm. the kit lens, at 15mm (~24mm) gives weird images (IMO) when i try to take grp shots. mebbe its the limitation of my kit lens lah.

    Because it is not corrected for rectilinear distortion it is wider than a 28mm lens.
