    Fun Lens, but Limited Practicality

    Posted .

    The fisheye lens is a lot of fun, and I enjoy using mine. However, I find that the practicality of the lens is minimal. I don't usually want my "serious" photographs to have fisheye distortion. I don't tend to like the 1.6x crop on Canon's lower-end digital SLR cameras, but with the fisheye this has an interesting benefit: it's reasonably easy to use the fisheye as a standard wide-angle lens, since most of the distortion is removed by the 1.6x crop. You can still get distortion, but it's a lot easier to compose a shot without it using a 1.6x camera than a full-frame camera. Either way, lots of fun. Buy one for the enjoyment, or even for professional assignments if your work calls for it, but think about if you really want the distortion before getting one of these.

    very nice lens

    I have to say I don't use this as much as my 50mm but I some times use for interior and group shoots in the limited space area. the distortion is not great and I like it that way because I don't have to crop and do touch ups as much. you have to try this lens to feel if you need this or not. I personally didn't need this lens but I saw one of my friends photos that he shot at an auto show and they were amazing. I had to have one. Problems I have to mention is that focus could get little vague for some surfaces but most lenses do have same problem, other problem will be the filter. you have to buy the square UV filters and they are not cheap and not very practical.

    It's not practical, but it's pretty cool!

    Okay I'll be right to the point. It's not that practical of a lens. It's a decent wide angle on a APS-C/H, but if you have a full frame DSLR, it gives you a 180 degree view. Amazing lens if you want an effect that's a little less mainstream. Construction of the lens isn't really up to L glass standards, but it's not as cheap feeling as the "nifty fifty" 50mm f/1.8. The aperture is also an f/2.8, so if you're indoors or any type of low lighting, that large aperture will help you out. I wouldn't say it's on my camera more than 5% of the time, but it's nice to have if I want a "different" look.
