    Cant make my mind up on which one to get. A fisheye or a super wide angle lens. I know the fisheye can become repetitive. Id really really like to see the creative shots that these lenses help make more creative. So please share some of your images that these lenses helped enhance..

    Thanks..

    I'd get a rectilinear super wide angle personally, more versatile than the fisheye. But if you have the money the fisheye could be a lot of fun.

    That sort of makes me want to turn signatures back on just to see what it is.

    Google is your friend. There are several sites that already have what you are looking for posted that you could go to instead of wasting bandwidth here.

    No one wants to show off?

    A rectilinear UWA will be more useful than a fisheye, but I use my fish a lot and it doesn't just sit in my bag like everyone says it will.

    Heres the thing about the Fisheye. If photography is a hobby to you. Well then a fisheye can get old quick. But if you run a business and majority of the photos you take are for somebody else. That one fisheye photo may be boring to you but may also be the customers favorite.
