Regarding the Zenitar 16mm
In reply to DANdeMAN, Jan 6, 2013

The Zenitar is an copy (without AF) of the Nikon 16mm except for QC.

If you don't like the idea of (possibly) adjusting for infinity focus, you can get the Nikon for ~$900

IMO, fisheye lens are made to take pics of relatively close subjects.

The other lens you might look at is the MF Samyang 14mm with 114° diagonal. This lens is very sharp f4 on up and fairly priced ~$400+ with camera metering and aperture control.

Both these lens are not easy to focus with the standard focussing screen. YMMV
