    Martz Sink 8-18-7



    Morrison Spring 8-25-7



    Blue Spring 8-25-7



    Jackson Blue Spring 8-5-7



    Little River Spring 10-1-7

    Ditto, not a whole lot shoot a fisheye, I like the different look.

    I could never get myself to pony up the cash to buy one for my SLR.

    Its difficult to use well IMO, sometimes the effect just doesn't lend to the image... I thought it worked well with those two shots though. My 11-22 gets far more useage though.

    What lens are you using for the Little river shot? 1.8? It makes it look HUUUGE!!!!

    Nice shots.

    I have a "cheap" fish eye made in Russia. It's the Peleng 8mm. It's a fully manual lens. On a film body it gives a 180' circle which is too drastic/artistic but on a crop body (most DSLR) it turns out to be a nice fish eye to work with. Used to be $200ish new two years ago. They have gone up in price because of the exchange rate. It's nice solid metal construction and comes with adapters to fit Canon and Nikon bodies. It's not too good wide open but once closed it makes good shoots. I don't know if it would be any good underwater since it needs a lot of lights.

    Here is some info.

    mcauliffe I can bring it next time I'm around if you want to see/try it. I have the mounts for Canon and Nikon.

    Here are some examples I shot a while back on my Canon 350D. Sorry no springs.
