Bower Fisheye 8mm f3.5 B&H $229
Posted By: stormtech, 12-13-2012, 10:00 AM

$60 off the Bower 8mm Fisheye at B&H. Looks like a decent lens to get your feet wet with a Fisheye lens.

If I was sort of starting over and was a manual focuser (neither applies), the Bower/Rokinon 8/14/35/85 would be a pretty good start.

I am not a manual focuser. You don't have to be with this lens. The DOF is so wide that if you step down to f8 and focus around the middle of the ring. everything will be in focus. I took advantage of this deal and have been having some fun with it. I can't wait until WInter is over.

The original post was on 12/13 - the special price is obviously over.

I believe the permanent-hood model will go on sale occasionally until they disappear, as the new model has a detachable hood. I grabbed one for $199 a few weeks ago, so I don't think this will be the last deal.

I believe it was buydig that sold me the perma-hood version at this price, so this is a great find!
