What is the best fisheye lens

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Catz, Aug 19, 2005.

  1. I have been doing some research but both the 10mm and the 16mm look good but what do you all think?

    Thanks for the help.

    16mm will not give 180 degrees corner to corner like the 10.5 does.
     
  5. The 10.5.

    I am going back to the Horsehoe Curve, Altoona, PA, next month to capture a few more images from the middle of the curve. My first attempt wasn't great. But you could see the beginning and end of a 1.5 mile long train coming into and out of the horsehoe. You will really like the 10.5.
     
  6. Hi Crystall...I know that curve...I grew up part of my life in Somerset...not too far from Altoona and when I was dating my first husband, we went there alot...it was so much fun.

    The 10.5 is a sweet lens. If you keep it parallel to the scene, you don't even have to have that typical fisheye curvature. Here's a shot I took last week during a visit to Sydney, Australia:

    Of course, if you want that effect:

  8. Thanks John for the advice. I will try it out and if I need more info, I will call on you. Is that okay?
