Get an Eyeful of This

Advantages: Pruduces stunning, high quality images
Disadvantages: Pricey for something you will use rarely

For a product that should be used sparingly for maximum impact, fisheye lenses do not come cheap. The moment I gained more than a passing interest in photography however, I knew I had to have one. The strange, otherworldly distortion that can be achieved ...
