Try searching the Samyang 8mm/f3.5
~$450
This one's really wide, it might be too wide for your tastes haha :)

Or Zenitar 16mm/f2.8
~$300
Just slightly wider than the 500D kit lens, but produces a nice effect of the surrounding wrapping around the subject haha :p

You can't find these in SG though, you'll have to get it over eBay.

Regards,
gibss.

try to go for the samyang 8mm, u'll lose alot of fisheye effect on the zenitar due to the crop factor of your 500d.

I too recommend the samyang 8mm over the zenitar because the zenitar fisheye effect won't be that prominent on a crop body. Bear in mind these are manual focus lenses.
