since you don't seem to be adverse to MF take a look at:


It has been getting some good reviews.


As someone else said the Sigma 10-20 is a pretty good lens but may be a bit above your price point.

Nice first shot, glad the lens is working out for you. I took a look at your flickr, don't forget you can stop it down, it really shines about a stop down.

the zenith is a fishy so lines wont stay straight. plus at 16mm you might as well just buy a kit lens.

that lens is great on fullframe but pointless on crop...theres a 8/2.8 from samyang for crop.

yea im just trying my best to save money on my next lens purchase because i have money waiting to come in and some will buy my new lens and the rest goes into savings and a little goes to the girlfriend to spoil her.

according to my executive producer for one of my jobs all the paperwork will be processed within the next week so ill have a large direct deposit into my account soon i hope

as much as it has not been advised by others i might do the 8mm since on my crop it wont be too fishy i dont think because i dont care if its fisheye or rectilinear i just want the short focal length. if the 8mm was f2.8 instead of 3.5 it could give me some extra light but i am comfortable shooting higher ISO to get my shots

I'm not really sure. There wasn't any on the floor, so I guess the tank dribbled onto my foot when I was inverting. Seems like I would've noticed it leaking though.



Conspiracy, have you looked at the Sigma 8-16/4.5-5.6? It looks pretty decent considering the ridiculously short focal length.

I should have asked this first but have you shot with an UWA before, what was your widest lens?

The gap from 30mm to 10 or even 8 mm is huge. The gap from even the stock 18mm kit lens out to 10mm is huge. Be sure to try a local camera store or even try a rental of a UWA if you haven't shot with one before, its wider than most think. Controlling distortion also becomes a bigger issue depending on what you shoot.

I would also be careful buying a fisheye if you haven't tried/rented one before, again the effect can be rather strong at 8mm and it is again wider than most think.

These show the difference a bit

Not sure if this is crop or full frame but it helps show the difference


Im pretty sure this is a crop but not sure of the factor on the pentax. You can see the differnece between 18 and 10mm here.

the widest i have ever shot is 8.6mm on a professional 35mm video camera.

im just keeping my eyes on craigslist right now as well as potn and keh. trying to get used to save money.

that sigma 8-16 is out of my price range even used possibly. but i am considering the sigma 10-20 used just need to find one. noone wants to get rid of them it looks like. majority of these UWA zooms are out of my range that i am comfortable spending right now even used. as i find more stead use and need for the UWA ill invest in a quality lens later but i think i want to start with a cheap prime/used sigma zoom which looks like the 10-20

8.6 on a 35mm video is similar to what you would see with an 8 on your aps-c.

so then going with the 8mm might actually be a good idea? because i was unsure but knew that its one of my few options. i just wish it was a rectilinear rather than fisheye but honestly for the money im saving not buying more expensive glass that is not at all a deal breaker to be honest.

the 8-16 is a great idea i just cant afford it right now for a while until my paychecks become more steady then i look forward to selling what i buy next to fund a more quality investment

Once more:

Sigma 10-20. They go cheap used, and don't suffer as far as I can tell by all accounts, from focusing issues. Great lens, I use mine (at least recently) very often. Excellent build, fast and silent AF, not a ton of weird distortion. Hella cheaper than the EF-S 10-22.
