What to do and buy in order to get good Fisheye Pictures?
Maybe some examples of good adapters because a whole new lens is to expensive and maybe some tips. Thx a lot!

If you don't have the budget to buy a genuine manufacturer lens, a after-market or third party lens is good alternatives, the Tokina 10-17mm or Sigma 8mm are good. Adapters compromise image quality.

Hope this helps!

I don't know very much about fisheyes, but. . .

David, I think the experts here (not me :lol: ) could help you better if we knew what lenes you have, or what you want it to mount to, and what type of shots you would want to do.
I.E I have seen great shots of skateboarders, BMX, and street corners taken with fisheye's.
I have looked on ebay and have seen them from $59-$300(US)

Nick
