    I'm serious. :hsugh: On a 1.6x crop camera a fisheye barely has any distortion and looks pretty cool. They're smaller than a wide angle lens and you can take it about anywhere and take pictures of anything almost. At 15/16mm, they're so wide that at infinity almost everything is in focus so you can use them at like f/8 focus to infinity and just aim and shoot.

    :dunno:

    You thought wrong! :fawk:

    The 20mm f/1.8 is a nice walk around lens too, or you could just get a kit lens. :noes:

    A fisheye is the ultimate low light lens :o
