I'm looking for a fish-eye, not too expensive.

I found one Russian lens- the same brand as on the link- on e-bay, the shop is in Canada, this lens in Holland. (And others lenses in other countries) that makes me nervous, but what about this one ? I mean brand, performance and the shop ?

Won't use it a lot, but wanted to take pictures of some buildings and could not find a position to get them complete on my vieuwfinder, so mayby this could be a help ?

See the link of my input
http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=80
I still have to see one negative input on this lens. The review is overwhelmingly positive.
According to the other forum, none of the purchasers have to pay tax in EU if you are located in Holland .

I don't own one but most people who do seem to love it. Also no experience on the specific dealer...... If you go to this post you will get a vendor critique. The Pentax slr forum at dpreview is full of good things to say about it.

OT: How do you copy a hot link in this forum format???



NOTE: It's a browser thing, Netscape 7 will not paste nor does the earth thing icon show up. But thanks all..........

The third symbol from the right will let you put a link in the message.

thanks, once I found out it was easy, the source became clear.....



Edited my first post. Netscape 7.1 doen't like this forums software (limited functions) so I edited w/ MS IE. There's whole sections of the toolbar and individual icons missing in Netscape...
It's heck supporting the little guys.......

Happy as a little kid, it came today. It's already getting dark so I have to wait for tomorrow.... Took a door, not sharp, I put the lens on right out of the box and did not look fot focus or anything I just wanted to take a picture

But now I have to find a way to do not lose all the extra in the picture when I straitened the lines.

This is the original picture

This one with a bit fiddling in photoshop. Look that a great part of the picture is cropped to hold it on the same size. But I would like a way to keep -allmost- all of it.
