    Great photos and thanks for starting this thread! This lens is tempting me something fierce, but I worry I won't use it (and it's way more expensive than a pinwide!). Any buyer's remorse?

    Not at all, I was intending to buy the Panasonic Fisheye so I've saved myself a huge amount of money and I really don't think I'm missing out on anything by not paying double for the Panasonic.

    Man, I'd never seen much use for a fisheye and certainly was never even considering the Pany at its price. Some of these photos and this lens are making me think about it. I'm still dubious I'd use it enough to justify it, but then I AM pretty heavily wired toward the wide side and many of these photos make me think I could have a lot of fun with it.

    So, THANKS guys....:mad:

    I love the last image of the car. I am patiently waiting for the price to come down to low 300 and I'll get it.

    Bit of promo work for the army, they had quite a bit of equipment coming and going. I live on the side of Salisbury Plain (one of the biggest UK training grounds) so these things fly over my house on a frequent basis.

    They still terrify me, they just look evil!

    We lived near miramar from the famed "top gun" and these things use to unsettle me when they would quietly appear over hills and cliffs. They're really on top of you before you know it.

    Theyre probably a completely different beast now that you guys fit them with the 2100 hp rolls-royce engine. :eek:

    Don't know if I'm gonna find enough use to keep it, but I bought one and its more than a little fun to play around with.

    You can go with the overwhelming fishy perspective:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6218042581/" title="Gone Fishin' by ramboorider1, on Flickr">"1024" height="683" alt="Gone Fishin'"></a>

    Or you can just use it as a superwide, without being toooo obvious (although I don't think trees grow like that):

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6218571936/" title="Farm Fishin' by ramboorider1, on Flickr">"1024" height="683" alt="Farm Fishin'"></a>

    Or if its just fishy enough, you can cook the processing to get the implication of it coming from a different planet, because you know SOMETHING is off:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6218047155/" title="Fishin on Neptune by ramboorider1, on Flickr">"1024" height="683" alt="Fishin on Neptune"></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6218044007/" title="Fishin' on Mars by ramboorider1, on Flickr">"1024" height="683" alt="Fishin' on Mars"></a>

    I haven't seen such intense and obvious flare since my old Pentax K1000 - I know its a flaw but I've always liked it:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6218571754/" title="Fishin' for Flare by ramboorider1, on Flickr">"768" height="1024" alt="Fishin' for Flare"></a>
