    Thanks Nick - I bet you wouldn't even know it was a fisheye if I cropped out the tree and house at the bottom lol. I only left them in because I felt I would loose too much of the star field if I cropped them off. One of these days, I'm going to get myself a perfectly clear night away from town -can't wait to see the result then with an uncluttered foreground and jet black sky :)

    I like it a lot, it's a great little lens with a BIG image and it's really sharp too. I like the fact you can set the F stop to pretty much anything above F/5.6 and get a huge depth of field with everything in the image in focus. Used carefully, it's possible to get really usable landscape shots or crazy distortion if you prefer.
    For the price of the lens, it's a great buy.
