I had one of these for a while and really enjoyed it. It is the kind of lens that you can't help but have fun taking pictures with. I actually regret selling it and will most likely be replacing it sometime in the near future....

Oh, yeah. Fish eye is such a fun lens that will turn a uninspiring stroll into something different!

Have you checked out the Zenitar?

Ghost: The Zenitar 16mm F2.8 Fisheye lens is pretty affordable. You can find them on eekbay for about $175 or so new. They are actually designed for full size 35mm film cameras so the fisheye effect isn't as pronounced on the 1.5 cropped digital sensors but it's still a lot of fun. It's a full manual lens, and not terribly sharp wide open but stopped down to 4.0 or larger it's great! I have one and love it.

Congrats, it's a great lens, just be careful not to include your feet in the pictures you take.
