I had my arm twisted to support one of our projects out at sea for a couple of weeks in June. So I took my camera and lenses and wound up using the DA 10-17 Fisheye much more that what I anticipated.

Here is the tug nudging us out into the bay....

We practiced refuling at sea. It was dusk and the sun was going down. This is from the hanger deck.

Another one from the hanger deck, a few steps back in side the ship.

Still refueling, this time from the flight deck out on one of the elevators. The breeze was about 40 kts, sun going down, and they were getting ready to disconnect.

Excellent shots - a fisheye isn't the easiest lens to use effectively and you show the best use of the lens with these. Some day I might get one, if I can pick one up cheap enough. I probably wouldn't use it enough to justify paying much for it, but it sure would be fun!

Excellent images and great use of the DA 10-17mm. Love mine and I am always looking for opportunies to use it. Image #1 shows the fish eye at it's best. It also amazes me how one can use it as simply an ultra wide angle and show no distortion. I am a bit of an aircraft buff as well and enjoyed the pics of the chopper.
