thanks for the feedback terence...Terence said:I use the Sigma 15mm FE. Not bad for its price (about $600).
ya .... considering whether to get the fisheye or 17-40 f/4L. :think:EiRiK said:respawn, looking for fisheye too?
:think: :think: hmmm....quite true ,but i was thinking the 17-40 and the 24-70 overlaps too much and i would most probably use the 24-70 as my main lens and the 17-40 as landscape.ST1100 said:The 17-40 would definitely be more useful than the fisheye. More versatile, and usable in a much wider range of situations. i think the 2nd set more useful.
BTW the fisheye is not an L lens.
The FE is more of a specialty lens as it isn't rectilinear and hence introduce a significant amount of intended barrel distortionsReSpawN said::think: :think: hmmm....quite true ,but i was thinking the 17-40 and the 24-70 overlaps too much and i would most probably use the 24-70 as my main lens and the 17-40 as landscape.
So , if i will to get the 15mm f/2.8 instead of the 17-40mm f/4 for landscape,do u think it is advisable??
Any comments from anyone is welcome. Thanks :angel:
I have both the 15mm and 17-35 f/2.8 and for wide angle landscape the 15mm on EOS 10D is a super combination - with no need to de-fish at least 95% of my shots. I've had both the Canon and Sigma and they are very similar in quality.goering said:The FE is more of a specialty lens as it isn't rectilinear and hence introduce a significant amount of intended barrel distortions
For using that as a landscape lens, you'll probably need to defish a lot using software and plug-in but it's a lot of work & you lose some resolution as well. It works well for some people - but I think a Sigma 12-24 would be a better landscape lens if you need it to be wider and no overlap in your lineup
yup... my friend calls them feet-eye lens :bsmilie:ST1100 said:FWIW, i enjoyed using my fisheye on my 10D. It gave a 'super-wide' perspective, with curved lines at the side. It's *excellent* for people photography, bcoz unlike rectilinear ultrawides, they don't distort people's faces as violently.
The not-completely-fisheye effect can be a welcome relief too. Using a fisheye on fullframe can be rather difficult. It's almost impossible to exclude elements you don't want in the frame, like your own feet. I've gotten bits on my thumb in the picture too, without realizing it.
