Decided to get a Fish Eye lens as I have seen some stunning wedding and landscape shots taken with them. I have ended up with a Sigma 15mm f2.8 .  1. Because it was cheaper and  2. In my research it seems to be just as good as the Canon.
Anyway big Wedding on tomorrow so hopefully a chance to try it properly.   A few test shots below using a Canon 5D

Great shots of your 'workshop'. It looks like you will be having fun with that lens.  ;D

Nice. I am trying to decide whether to buy a 50mm 1.4 or fisheye with my Nikon win so be interesting to see some wedding shots if you can put one up. ;)

I have the Tokina 11-17mm fisheye (nik fit) and its hardly been used since I got it some 4yrs ago.
May think about letting it go in the new year or maybe part ex it

I thought they were 10-17 or 11-16? Is it a dx lens of full frame?

It`s something different Dave. Like the first two more than the last- especially the first with them doing different things and thinking they are out of shot. I think my need is more for a 1.4 lens just now though on contemplation
