I just got home from work and found a message left on my answering machine. The lens has finally come in. Going to pick up the 10-17mm after work tomorrow.

Make sure to move your left elbow back when you shoot at 10mm, and watch your feet :-)

The fisheye has only 2 straight lines - horizontal and vertical through the center - but as pointed out, careful composition can make a big difference in apparent distortion.
Are you sure? I thought any straight line that goes through the center point will remain straight whether it's horizontal or at 37 degrees. I guess most people have primarliy horizontal and vertical lines but I'm lazy and find my camera balances better at a 60 degree angle
