Hi Everyone, I own a Canon 600D, I would like to buy a fisheye lens but the Canon lens is expensive, can any Member recommend a good quality lens that would be compatible with my 600D please, many thanks..Caroline
You could look at the Samyang but I think it is a manual focus lens.... |Graham
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.
Many thanks Graham and Chris, fisheye lens looks great fun! many thanks for the link Chris..Caroline!

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.
Hope this helps Aidy
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
yeah, i think so, Samyang 8mm as this is the lens I am using and it is awesome and great fun.
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
