    Most fisheye are between 5mm to 18mm over 300 USD, that price range is more in line with low end wide-angle lenses 24mm to 40mm about 100 USD, IMO

    maybe you can (or better want to) use a MF lens (Canon FD mount) with a screw mount adapter from a 3rd party manufacturer like Peleng or Phoenix. Downside NO autofocus, NO aperture control from the body.
    Not the best lenses regarding build quality... Optically it shouldn't really matter for fish eyes IMHO. Take a peek at ebay, B&H used or KEH... With some patience you should get something for cheap
