It's an add-on lens meant to be screwed on the front of another: as such, results are unpredictable and nothing, generally, to be considered 'good' in the strictest sense. But, potentially you could have a bit of fun with them. I wouldn't pay a lot.

It seems people do try and sell them as point-and-shoot accessories on Ebay for probably a lot more than they're practically-worth, but fun's fun.

Tamron makes one that is supposed to be very good, but it is over $150. I have one of the cheap versions and would recommend putting your money towards a zenitar or pentax fisheye.
