The Canon equivalent is the EF 8-15mm f/4. And is about twice as much as the Nikon version.

For you Canon shooters, you should look into the Sigma 10mm 2.8 Fisheye. It's the same price and same focal range as the Nikon version.

If I might be so bold...I would shy away from the fisheye for a couple different reasons. It's very uni-purpose. Not good for portraiture, not really good for landscapes. Only really good for eye catching shots that (I) would get bored of pretty quick. Instead I would shoot for a good Ultra-Wide-Angle lens like the Sigma 10-20mm (which I have.) You get some good fisheye distortion at the wide end and in the middle it's good enough for landscapes and such. It's only like $500.


In other news, my 35mm f2 came in today! I have yet to really try it out though as I had to run off to work.
So now my 50mm f1.8 if for sale. PM me if you want...

Why sell the 50? I would suggest to keep both. Why? because the 50 is a great portrait lens and on your Crop Sensor body it is more equivalent to a standard 85mm ... well just shy of 85 (75mm) And it doesn't distort your subject as the 35 would. Granted it is a slight distort, when it comes to portraits, it can be noticeable to a client. Trust me, I know. Try taking a photo of a corporate woman who is very meticulous to details.

New Garage and a new Wishard Hospital is going up on the other side.

Ray, just so you're aware, the Canon crop sensors are 1.6x, not 1.5x. So a 50mm on a crop sensor like the Rebel series would be the equivalent of 80mm.

You need a suppressor filter! That would be a cool shot if the light pollution wasn't so bad

Ah thanks. I knew there was a .1 mm difference somewhere.

Eh, I am so use to the Nikons, I forgot Canon made a small difference on the crop sensors.

But still a valid reason to keep a 50mm. for Portrait.

It was really bad. I wasnt sure How it was going to react. I may go back tonight and try a faster exposure. That was either 2.5 or 3" ISO100

I have an obsession with night shots.
It might be that I'm just so busy during the day that its all I ever do. Lol

Like this:



That one isn't as good as I was hoping it would be =[

Dark backgrounds and dark cars ... are very hard to capture at night.

You should find a lonely street light and put your car under it.

That would be neat.

How long are you dragging your shutter for? And what lens are you using?

For that shot I believe it was a around 6" ISO 100 f3.1

Its just a VERY cheap fujifilm bridge. I've had it for a while and I'm finally feeling the itch to move up to a dslr.

Not gonna lie, I'm in love with the smooth sky and the contrast it gives to the jagged treeline. If you could just add some light in the foreground to illuminate the car, that would be epic.
