    I know its subtle, my wedding photographer used it at my wedding... but is it worth the extra few bucks over the Nikon 10.5? I want a fisheye. :o

    just for shits and giggles... this is a wedding picture of mine done on a Nikon D1x and a 15mm Sigma fisheye. As you can see, very subtle. :o

    The only downside to the 10mm is that its for Crop sensor Nikons... which would mean it wouldn't work on a D700 FF w/ out having it cropped. :hs:

    You can disable the auto cropping on the 700 but you will see the lens hood in the edges of the picture. I can show you if you want.

    That being said, if you have plans of changing to full frame, Id go for whatever you can use on the full frame body. Just know that the effect isnt going to be as dramatic on your crop body and is going to be very dramatic on the FF body.

    Not the Sigma.

    Last time I was there though we did have the D700/300 and the 10.5 there.

    Here you go.

    Disregard the funny WB and/or the resize craziness. I have nothing here at work to do anything with pictures aside from MSPaint so I let photobucket resize them.

    This is what they use whenever they take pics of those assparade chicks to make their ass look rounder.

    :cool:

    Doesn't look too much different, a little more exaggerated on the D700... but not $1500 worth. :eek5:
