Asking Price

Item Location

Item Description
I'm probably going to regret this, but I need to sell my Vivitar 7mm/3.5 fisheye.

This was acquired recently and has been used sparingly. I've taken it outside a few times, but I'm finding that I'm not using it as extensively as I thought I would.

To be honest - it's TOO WIDE. I never thought I'd say that, but it is. It's way wider than I need a lens to be. This would be a perfect lens for someone who truly wants a wide fisheye, but for me, I think I just need a rectilinear wide angle lens or better yet, a DA 21/3.2 Limited.

I would love to trade this lens for someone's DA 21/3.2 Limited. We can work on the difference in value offline.

I gushed over this lens when I first got it, and wrote a review here.

Lens will come with everything: caps, soft case, box, paperwork.

I'm asking $200, but would entertain all reasonable offers.

NOTE: This lens is for APS-C, not for FF. There may be a way to modify the lens by shaving the petal hood and removing the rear element filter to work on FF, but please note that on the box, it says that it's for APS-C.

Hi,
Could you post a few pictures so I may see what you mean by "too wide" ?
Happy Holidays!
