    So is it a gimmick lens or do people use it for certain purposes?

    That's what I'm asking, it seems like it's too wide and huge to be something that one would actually use often. I don't really know though.

    How often do million dollar cars get driven? But they do get sold.

    but I mean seriously... sure, maybe one shot of like down town New York or something... but you can't seriously plan on doing anything other than gimmick shots with that.

    The 10.5mm DX is already 180-degrees, corner to corner, on a DSLR. :shrug:

    I'd rent one for a day or something.. just to play around and see if I -could- find a purpose for one.. but I bet even renting one would cost a friggin fortune..
