I love tweaky, offbeat lenses
on January 10, 2011
OK, I bought this off eBay and paid $38 + $7 shipping. I should have looked it up on Amazon. I paid too much. Stupid me.
So, I was looking through eBay about a month ago, and I came across this interesting little gem.
.42x Wide Macro Fisheye lens for NIKON
This isn't what I would call a serious lens. If you want a good Fisheye, you are going to pay $$$ for it. This is more of a novelty lens. It doesn't even attach to your camera--you screw it onto an existing lens like you might a filter. They claimed 8 element optics--yeah right. The "MACRO" option was just an extension tube with the word "MACRO" printed on it. I mean, it works, but I'd hardly call that a feature.
Anyway, I took it for a test spin. I screwed it onto a 35mm Tokina Macro lens. The pictures are fun. I put the images on Facebook. You can view them even if you aren't on Facebook, assuming Amazon lets me post the link:
Anyway, I give it a thumbs up. For $20, it's kind of fun. And it's cheaper than buying one of those Lomography cameras, well, assuming you already have a camera.
