That's nice. Come back with some images to share and C&C. (Not everything is equipment).

Why I don't recommend the fisheye:

1) It might be more wide than you need (the field of view is like 180 to 100 degrees, whereas the 12-24 is from 100 to 60 degrees approx, so you get the idea, a lens having fisheye means the field of view is dramatically different from a normal -called rectilinear- lens).

2) Fisheye lenses cause distortion, while you can fix it a bit in post processing, it can be annoying.

I find tilting straight lines more "annoying" in some case than fisheye distortion.
I've posted this angle-of-view comparison before, but hopefully it will be new to some. I regret not including the fisheye at 10mm, but too late now.

Interesting comparation, I think I like a little more the pictures taken with the fisheye.

What is C&C?
