Re: Zenitar 16 FE- presentation and samples

I'm new to photography so bare with me.

2 problems I have with the concept of this lens.

first is you don't get the full effect of a fish eye on a dslr such as the k10D because of the sensor size as oppose to a FF film camera. I mean even uncorrected pictures barely have any fisheye distortion in them, maybe a little on the sides as oppose to quiet a bit with a true fisheye.

secondly why bother correcting all these pictures when you shot in fisheye to begin with? is this a fisheye thread or a masochistic thread? I'm missing the whole fisheye concept.

Why not just use a wide angle lens if you guys keep correcting the pictures?

again I'm playing devils advocate and by no means am I knocking this lens just trying to see it from your eyes and learn a thing or two about fisheye as can see having alot of fun with a true fisheye lens on the right camera.
