Fisheye in Europe: soligor 0.25x
Sep 16, 2003

Yes, I've finally got it!

My soligor 0.25x fisheye lens from http://www.brennerfoto.de (€89) and it is fantastic. I am still experimenting with it, but thus far, I am satisfied. It focuses at ranges from a few cm's or even closer (in macro-mode I could only get a sharp image by placing the lens smack on the subject).

The downsides so far: there are some chromatic aberrations when you try to rectify the image, the circular photo at 28-35 mm isn't exactly in the middle of the frame (otherwise one could take cicular shots up to 40 or even 50 mm) and the lens caps are very loose.

My website will launch within the next six weeks, so then I'll be able to show samples. I found the lens at a couple of German webshops, including http://www.fotokoch.de (€99). Unless you have some way of obtaining the American Phoenix lens, go for this one.
