I have a medium formmat version of the same lens.(30mm but for a pentax 645). It is pretty good for the price.

fisheye freak

I am fisheye freak on another forum. I have 5 fisheyes and am usually on the hunt for others. The Zenitars have a POOR reputation , purchase is not recommended. For the curious, I have a full frame 30mm fisheye for my medium format SLR , 17mm f/4 full frame rectangular fisheye , Sigma 8mm f/4 circular fisheye , 7mmm f/5.6 Hanimex prototype circular fisheye and a 10-17mm f/3.5 fisheye zoom for my digital Pentax. The fisheye zoom is probably the one to go for . From what I gather, this lens is made by Tokina and can be found in Canon mount. Another lens which would be nice to own(alas not made for pentax digital coverage) is the Sigma 4.5 mm f/2.8 circular fisheye about $480 on ebay.
