Fisheye - circular or rectangular
Mar 31, 2011

Want to add a fisheye to my bag and am looking for feedback from those of you with experience using various fisheye's as well as the Lensbaby stuff.

I shoot a DX camera so I'm trying to be sure I get the right lens as it seems like there aren't many specifically made for DX sensor. I know nikon makes a 10.5mm f2.8 for DX but my understanding is that it's a rectangular fisheye and I think I'd prefer circular.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but don't circular fisheye's produce much more of a dramatic effect? I believe Sigma produces a circular fisheye but that it's only FX.

I already have a wide angle lens and am therefore not interested in "removing" the fisheye effect allowing me to use the lens as both a fisheye and wide angle.

Thx
