Does anyone have pictures taken with an fz10,15,20 and the nikon fisheye adapter (or any fisheye adapter for that matter)?

I'm wondering how it looks at different focal lenghts, (would 35mm appear like a fisheye shot where as a 400mm shot would approach the appearance of a normal photo)

Thanks

Fisheye converters are supposed to be used at the wide end of your camera lens to yield 180 degree angle of view. In many cases, the camera can be zoomed in a little to yeild the so-called full-frame fisheye (i.e., 180 degree along the diagonal); however, due to its design, many cameras may not be able to focus properly. See my Panasonic FZ-30 user guide (not-yet-made public) for more details: http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/DigiCam/User-Guide/FZ-30 The charactersstics of using Nikon fisheye lens on FZ-10/20 is the same.

Fisheye lenses are designed to make circular images with a lot of distortion on a rectangular paper. No more no less. So if you are not going to use it as designed save your money and move on to something that will not gather dust from non-use.
