Apparently, everybody knows which lens the OP (clengman) and fish monkey are using. But I haven't a clue, and would like to know, given the obvious interest of theses photos!

(I know what a "fisheye" is, I am asking making and model )

Could you please clarify?

Oh yeah, sorry. It's one that's pretty popular around here, the Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye. It's a native m43 lens, but is completely manual in operation (manual focus and aperture). It's also sold under the Samyang and Bower brand names. I bought mine from Overstock.com for $269 with free shipping. I think it's a fantastic deal for a very sharp and interesting lens.

I had been planning for a while to buy the oly 9-18 zoom as a landscape and travel lens, but my wife and I are planning a vacation to the Caribbean in February and I wanted to get a wide angle lens before we left. This was the only one that fit my budget in the short term, so I snapped it up.

I originally thought I might just use it for a little while then ebay it and buy a rectlinear wide angle when I have a little more money to spend, but I think I like it too much. Iit's a keeper.
