    I recently bought a Minolta AF 16mm f2.8 fisheye lens on e-bay. I bid low, early in the auction, and didn't really think I would win, but to make a long story short, itarrived in the mail today. Are there any good resources on making images with a fisheye lens? Maybve I should just star experimenting a little? I would appreciate any ideas. I am using a Maxxum 9 and an 800si.

    Experiment sounds good to me - fisheyes can be very useful - is it an add on lens? I've never been a real fan of extreme wide angles. Good for some architectural - and indoor room photography. Or just to make things strange like fun house mirrors. Have at it.
