After lusting for the Zenitar for a while, I found out Cameta was selling an auto-focus fisheye with just the right aperture. I'm still learning how to compose with it; it's weird being able to see your feet in the viewfinder every once in a while.

That lens surely does make you re-think perspective a whole lot. Nice shots.

Hamfist3d,

Nice test shots.

Any fisheye lens gives you the odd chance of looking at things entirely different

Cool shots! It's interesting to see what can be done with a fisheye - I'm like you were, I keep thinking about one.
