heck cant vote, i would go for 17mm too (if lower even better!)
had the gd fortune of checking out output from 3 different FishEyes..adn several other such shots from unknown pcs.
at first the shot orientation and extreme barrel distortion attracts me to view the image, but after coming back for a 2nd glimpse, it lost much of its strong appeal on me for some reasons. too much curves??
of cos i have seen some memorable FE shots, but i kinda think these are the odd few rather than the norm.
i figure if i do indeed get to own a FE, it could be an infrequently used lens, but one that is most interesting to use whenever i really feel like it. hopefully then i would have mastered the 'right' techniques and perspective to appreciate it fully.
just my two pennies..
anyone like to share their FE masterpcs here
but its street photography leh.... how can ask people to move nearer.... haha i think u meant i move nearer to the people.... then the background will be blocked right? lol have not owned a wide angle before so i dont really know....
Try the Sigma 12-24 EX DG on a FF camera , how wide it can go will really blow you away.:thumbsup:
However, that said, extreme care has to be taken when composing your shot though.
Added bonus being it can be use on a 1.6X or 1.5X LF DSLR.:thumbsup:
The downside of it is that you won't be able to use any normal filter on it except gelatin ones.:cry:
