Yeah, it's $250 now, with tax. A fisheye is a good lens to have - I have one, and I've had 5 of 'em. You will use it all the time at first, but then after a bit you won't touch it! ...

Finally, it'll be useful for a limited set of pictures. When it's needed, no other lens will do, so if you find something at the "get it all in" limit missing, get a high quality, dedicated prime lens like this Bower, Rokinon, or whatever - and put it to work!

Supplemental lenses also work, but they aren't quite the same at the edges - and that is where fisheyes are important. Search the internet for "dyi fisheye" if you want the ultimate in low cost semi-spherical lenses.

You'll know when you need a fisheye. ... and you'll then you'll catch the bug.

I think you've described the path I've taken to a "T" - I bought the Rokinon a few months ago after seeing Frank and other's post some cool looking landscape shots (the first one I've ever owned). I used it quite a lot, found some uses for it, but not as much lately. I still carry it and it is almost always mounted on my EPL5. It serves as my ultra wide when I need one, sometimes with all of it's fish eye glory, sometimes slightly defished.
