    around $500 for a prime fisheye from Canon or Nikon. Canon's fisheye is a 15mm, so it wont have as much "fish" as the Nikon, a 10.5mm. Luckily, Tokina makes a DX fisheye that's 10-17mm and is available in most mounts. I think it runs about $400-500.

    Check on ebay. The image quality is usually pretty terrible and there is often extreme vignetting around the corners.

    Hey. Sorry, I don't want to make another thread about this, but I just have one quick question on this topic.

    Is fisheye just an extreme wide-angle lens?

    It is an extremely wide angle lens, close to about 180 degree viewing angle (compared to ~120 for a normal UWA). They give a tremendous amount of distortion to the image as well, which most people seem to like.

    Ok checked ebay, skrew ons are 39-58$. But I'm not sure it'll fit my lens if I buy it because they list the size.

    So make sure the size is the same as your lens's diameter.
