    I've been wanting a fisheye forever, found one for a decent price. Now Im not so sure I want to spend close to $500 on a 'trick' lens when the rest of my collection isn't so rounded out (I dont have anything past 85mm)... Idunno

    i want a fish eye as well, however, i agree with you...after x amount of shots, the fish eye will get old, i think...

    why bother when you can get a off brand for cheaper, its a rarely used lens anyway

    our wedding photog had one, and it was fucking -awesome-.

    too bad it's $$$ and i'd rarely use it. but, it was a f'n sweet lens.

    Maybe I should get the 50mm 1.4... I've got the 1.8 but having a 1.4 might be a nice portriat lens

    i love dumb people....

    i get flamed at POTN for telling some of the people selling the items that a brand new one costs 5 dollars MORE than what they are selling their stuff at.

    for 5 dollars, i would rather buy it brand new...sorry.

    Yes what the deuce are you talking about? $650 for the 28-70 is a pretty good deal is it not?

    i was speaking generally...not about the update that you were talking about...

    there are people that try to sell stuff for 5 dollars less than what it costs brand new...

    there has been plenty of talk about it here before, it is apparently not a lot of fish on a crop camera.
