    What's the difference between a .42x fisheye lense, and one at .22x?

    I'm still new to photography as i've stated previously, so a lot of these numbers still confuse me! I have myself a .42x fisheye lense, but aren't overly impressed with the effect...will the .22x effectively double the effect for me?

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    I don't know the answer but I will take a guess. You are referring to an auxiliary lens that screws into the filter threads on your lens, I assume. One would fill a little less than half of the frame with a circular image and the other a little less than 1/4 of the frame. Understand this is a guess. You didn't get any answers so I'm doing the best I can.
