Pentax full frame fisheye for the 645D...would you buy one?

If Pentax made a high grade full frame fisheye for the 645D. And it was in the $3000 area...would you buy one for your 645?

No, fisheye lenses tend to be one-trick ponies. Once the wow-neat factor wears off, it is actually very difficult to use it well. Beside, I prefer stitching and the different projections I can use with that.

Yes, they are one trick. That was why I brought the fisheye in at $3K. For $3K it is OK. For 5 K I would vote NO.

I don't really know why, but wanting a fisheye for the 645d strikes me as barking mad. You may as well put a lensbaby on it. Not to say fisheyes (or lensbabies for that matter) don't have a place but... its a different sort of photography than I associate with the serious, stately, 646d.

Fisheyes have their place. They can produce great shots when used right. Here is a great fisheye photo.

Please don't post someone else's work. Especially when you can't even give the photographer credit. It seem to come from a private site.

It is from a big site where they don't even list names.
