    A very wide angle lens. Sometimes refer to as a fisheye lens.

    I believe that picture was taken with one of those fast telephotos from Canon.
    Possibly a 600mm f/4.

    WTF??? Telephoto????
    telephotos are long lenses, above 100mm.
    That image was taken with a fish eye (<15mm) for sure, look at the distortion of the vertical lines lines and the oversize of the subject in the foreground.

    Nah, Tomash is right, 600mm f/4L. Actually, looking at the picture, it's probably more than 600, maybe the Sigma 800 f/5.6?

    You don't bend the light.... the lens bends the angles. Can't you see it??? I even posted examples of what the fisheye does.
    How can you tell me that it is done w/ a telephoto???
    Freaking go to a rental house and check out a a fish eye and a telephoto, test them, take a couple of images w/ them and then tell me what each of them do and the perspective and distortion each of them give.

    My bad for asking that question. I think it's pretty cool when people flame on people when they admit they are noobs at something and need help. :squint:
