    It's probably been 3 or 4 years since I purchased a camera lens (other than some über-cheap toy lenses), but today the mailbox had my latest acquisition inside.......

    20190710_145755_resized small.jpg

    .....a 7artisans 7.5mm fisheye.

    Up until today, I've used a Nikon F-Sony E adapter for my Siggy 8mm circular fisheye. As you can imagine, it was really heavy, clumsy, bulky and awkward.

    This little gem isn't much bigger'n than my kit 16-50.

    I got it primarily for video, although a quick trip into the back yard for some stills after cleaning it up shows a LOT of purple fringing. Only testing it out will tell if it will work for video, which for me is typically 1080p.

    Normally 130-150 US$. Scored a used one for $90 shipped. Gotta love a bartain.

    Yes. Compared to my Siggy 8mm with adapter:

    Probably as much fun as my Siggy 15 on a D600.
