I've always wanted to play with a fisheye lens but thought I wouldn't use it enough to justify the expense.
But recently I received a cash gift with instructions to do something frivolous and get something I wouldn't get myself.
So, I got the 10.5mm fisheye.

To start getting into the mindset of "thinking fisheye" I took the lens out one afternoon and shot exclusively with it.

I'm attaching three shots from that first afternoon.
They were chosen to show a variety of uses and not necessarily because I think they're great shots

Now that I have it, since it's pretty small, I'll probably carry it much of the time for those interesting shots I may have passed up before.

All shots are D200 10.5mm lens ISO 100

  1. Landscape: f/5.6 1/640s
  2. Warm and Fuzzy: f/5.6 1/160s
  3. Up Close and Personal: f/2.8 1/1000s
