Shooting the cat
In reply to Mar, Aug 25, 2003

Last week I ordered one of soligor's 0.25 fisheye adapters. To my surprise, the (dutch) dealer was able to get me one within three days. Even more surprising was the Euro 69.00 price tag.

The contraption is attached to a D7i by means of a Series VII adapter and a 52mm-49mm step ring. I left the UV-filter in place which doesnt't seem to have any effect on the focusing range, probably because of the ridiculous DOF of this lens. AF works without any problem.

So far, I haven't been able to conduct even a superficial test, other than shooting our cat in a low-light, long shutter speed situation, which accounts for the somewhat fuzzy quality (cats too, add to the overall fuzziness of a pic). As soon as I can find the time, I'll publish some test results.
