I think I want to try out a fisheye lens but I don't want to pay a ton of money for it since I'm not sure how much I will use it. I have found the following lenses but would welcome other suggestions.

Rokinon/Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5

Meike MK-6-11mm f/3.5

7artisans Photoelectric 7.5mm f/2.8 II

Are any of these worth the effort?

I am leaning towards the 7artisans

And aside from the slight inconvenience of it not having autofocus, it is an excellent lens. Very well built.

Here's a small gallery with pictures from it:
