Hi
You could look at the Samyang but I think it is a manual focus lens.... |Graham

Hi.

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens Aspherical IF MC, CANON EOS appears to be good value at around 200. Manual focus is not a problem with this lens due to great depth of field.

Hi Caroline I would recommend the Samyang 8mm as this is the lens I am using and it is awesome and great fun have added three links to Flickr groups which you may like to read through there forum posts, mine I brought from EBay and would recommend the seller I used as they were very fast with delivery.

Hi Aidy, many thanks for the links and ebay information that's a great help, I have a creative fisheye filter on my 600D but when I look at your images Aidy in the gallery yours seem to have a stronger fisheye effect and your image seems to come out at you where as mine seem to go the other way! Hope this makes sense! I will pop an image in the gallery over the weekend taken from my 600D! ..Caroline

Hi Everyone, have just put a fisheye image from my 600D in the gallery, would a Samyang lens be better?! and when taking fisheye pics are there images that get better results? many thanks..Caroline

Many thanks Steve, still comparing my creative filter with a fisheye lens, will pop a few in the gallery soon! it's great to know Members are very happy with the Samyang lens and if I buy one it would be top of my list!..Caroline
