    I'm really bored with my 350D kit lens. And unfortunately right now I'm unemployed and can't afford a nice $1,000+ new lens at this moment.

    Are there any under $50 or maybe under $100 lenses that would be fun to play with? Maybe a fisheye lens or something? Just thought I'd ask.

    make a pinhole lens :mamoru:

    50 1.8

    turn your kit lens to ~35 mm, hold it reversed against the lens mount and take some macros. turn it towards 18 mm for greater magnification 55 mm for less.

    The Canon 50mm f1.8 is the only lens under $100 worth considering.
