Sanyang fisheye is a good portrait lens

Mostly for group portraits, though. It's indispensable at parties. With this lens you can sit at the table and capture whole table.

Rectilinear lens would distort worse. I have 9-18mm and at 9mm if people are more or less close, it would distort a bit too much. Fisheye has wider FOV than 7mm and distorts people less than 9mm when partially defished.

These were shot really close, in front of laptop display and you can see the laptop (I bothered children for few seconds).

Used PSP X4 and Hemi plugin to partially defish.
