The Fisheye Thread

Recommended Posts

I've heard the Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 AF-G IF-ED works on Nikon n90s... Can any one verify this?

i think it will work for aperture and the like, but you will have bucket loads of vig if it does.

If you don't have money, don't use a fisheye.

 

That's the point right there.

 

I can't afford to buy a 35mm for the bronny, so I probably never will. I can't justify the price for something that really isn't that usable. I will happily settle for 40mm.

 

I dunno...I just don't get the obsession...:blink:

I don't know if thats the best thing to do for your focus motor. It just adds wieght onto the lens which makes it harder (almost impossible) for the lens to focus automatically. If you end up doing that, always use the manual focus.

Didn't realize there was a 3rd page. Screw-ons are straight up garbage. Shoot long lens. The fisheye eventually gets boring and you can get more creative with your comp when you use a long lens IMO.

I don't know if any one has the D3 yet or still shoots 35mm Nikon. I am looking into selling my 16mm that I shoot on my F5 if any one is interested send me a pm.

I have looked and can't find it but, I'm going to buy a zenitar fisheye for my 10d, The kid I'm buying it from is using it on his d100. Will this not fit my camera? Also if not is there any converter I can buy to make it fit?

Your 10D is Canon, his D100 is Nikon... think about it for a second...

 

No you can't buy a converter... maybe you can ask an ebay seller if they can convert the lens mount for you... but no idea there.

zenitars have a srew mount which you attach the bayo for said brand, so yes you can get one, but

16mm on the 10d wont be fish. and these lens' are horrible quality

How would the peleng look on my 10d? I know its not going to look amazingly wide or anything, but would it be better then the zenitar?

Peleng is too much fish, Zenitar isn't enough fish.

The zenitar will be just a wideangle, and the peleng will give you too much vignetting.

 

Tokina 10-17.

Tokina 10-17mm or Sigma 10mm.

 

Get over the fact that photography is expensive and get yourself in some debt.

Well I can crop so vig is not to bad for me. I'm mostly a filmer so I need no more debt than I already have.

I'm killing myself think about buying a lens over 100 bucks right now so I don't know. hahaha

Well I have heard good/bad things about the peleng lens. I might test it out.

yeah15, just shoot with your 50mm.

fisheye gets annoying after a while, its not all worked up to what you think it is.

I've been researching Fisheyes for a bit of fun and erm, I guess most of you knew about the Nikkor 6mm f/2.8?

 

Check it:

It can do whole panoramic shots...in one shot:

It has 220* field of vision, so it can essentially see behind it's self. :rolleyes:
