    I looked for one for Nikon and couldn't find anything under ~$500. I felt it was too much to pay for the amount of use I'd get out of it but hopefully you'll have some luck finding something cheaper. I know KEH.com sells used lenses so you might have some luck there.

    You can always get one of those fisheye "adapters". That might tide you over until you can get a real one

    Pst. Look up Peleng 8mm. They make it in the Canon and Nikon mount. They're fully auto and don't have the best optics, but they do ok for a $250 lens.
