Default fisheye or not to fisheye

how many of you have a fisher.

ive always wanted one and jsut got a rather hefty tax rebate, so thinking of getting one but not sure if i will use it as much as i think i will.

so if any of you have one, how often do you use it, and do you enjoy using it.

I'd never use one enough to justify it. Yep it has a unique take on the subject but the shots get repetitive and :bored : very quickly. Hence why I only have an adaptor.

shooting cars in general gets boring after 5mins I find, even with rigs as you are limited to the same angles over and over in most cases.

dont know if this is any interest to any of you guys, theses are a few pics of experimentation i did as part of some uni stuff, anyways all the pics are just reflections from shooting into a chrome ball (garden ornament) thought you might be interested in the results. obviously if you were using it properly you would shoot at an angle so not to be in the reflection (however in my case i was ment to be in it lol, some crap about human vs nature)

How I love having a proper fisheye and not having a dodgy attachment

Vignetting and IQ dropping doesnt do it for me personally

You're probably not shooting on a Nikon body but if you are the Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 is a great piece of glass
