Default Playing with the Rokinon fisheye

Just a couple of shots when walking at lunch time ... Sometime you don't have to go too far to find some good subjects !

Enjoy!

If you take a look at all the review for the Rokinon 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye, you will find that theu all give it about 5 stars ! I really like it and it is a lot of fun to shoot with it.

However, you need to proper "spots" to use it, which we don't have that many here in the far north. Too bad I didn't have it last time I went to San Francisco ... I know a couple of nice places to use it there

Those definitely looked like some good subjects to me. Nice shots.

I can think of a few spots in San Francisco myself where that lens would be a good option.

Very cool shots...I love them! Well done.

I went on a mini vacation early last week I took many shots with the Rokinon mounted on my EPL1 (I thought it was a very nice combo). I used my G3 with all other lenses. I haven't have a chance to upload the images yet. Maybe this week.
