I've got a Zeni on the way!!

Okay, so I guess this is the beginning of LBA, it's a good thing I'm a student and don't have unlimited cash. I had a lousy week, and decided I needed a reward, so I ordered a Zenitar 16mm fisheye yesterday... and now I can think of nothing else! I've wanted a fisheye for some time, but it seemed a lot of money for a rather specialized lens. But then I kept seeing these amazing images from this lens, and found out it was less than half the price of any similar lens, and decided I must have it! Watch for the obligatory LBA post, it'd better be soon or I'm going to go crazy.

I'm watching with interest - have been thinking of one of those myself.

You won't regret your purchase. A lot of fun and very useful for wide shots too.

I think the Zenitar was my most well spent USD100 last year. A reward for having a lousy week? Hmm, what is the reward after having a fine week?

regards!

Not so much reward as compensation, I used the wrong word. Perhap a reward for not having strangled anyone, which I felt like doing on several occasions! Most weeks are pretty fine, so I'd better not get in the habit of rewarding myself for good weeks.

Good to hear. You got me worried there for a while.
With your Zenitar you can take pictures like this one:

Not a total fisheye effect as you know, but still very fun and also useable as a wide wide lens (as I know you also allready know). I'm looking forward to your upcoming z-pictures!

regards,
