    Here is my first image approved with a new lens, the Pro-optic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye. It is a remarkable lens in a few regards: 1. Price. At $250 this lens is almost as cheap as the nifty fifty, yet adds a view to your kit that is impossible to achieve otherwise. 2. Solid... More

    by Bradcalkins | 2nd of September, 2010
