Default Fisheye fun

Here is a rather grainy 1600 ISO shot from my DL that I converted to black and white. I just set the camera at 10mm and laid it on the table in front of him while he shuffled the cards, no viewfinder used (at 10mm it really is "point" and shoot).

Neat perspective! I'd also like to see it with the hands and cards in focus since they make up the foreground of the image. I can tell you are having fun with the FE!

A very interesting idea, this one. I agree about wanting the hands in focus, but otherwise I really think this picture is cool!

Fun lens Ira.

My Zen 16mm is wide but yours (10mm) can fit in a lot more

I like it! The FE has been on my wishlist for a very longtime. I need to just cave and get it for the "fun factor".
