    on a crop frame, the effect is pretty minimal. and i have no idea why the hell u'd wanna shoot a car show with a fisheye. and it will probably be cheaper to rent the sigma fisheye

    Its 180ー fisheye but only on a FF camera. You can see some of the fish on the crop body cameras and a lot more on the 1.3x ones but its crazy nice on the FF body.

    yea, e-jealous of a lens i could easily afford.

    im just saying, that fisheye has its place, but static car shots look retarded in fish. might as well just emulate the effect in photoshop.

    I have one, and its a novelty lens, at best. I've only used it a handfull of times at weddings.

    Here's an example, and its cropped down.


    BTW, I use a Canon 5D body.
