    I got mine from lensrentals.com


    There is also rentglass.com but they are usually out of most of the stuff. You have to sign up to recieve emails when their lenses get back in if you want a chance at snagging one


    There are others, do a google search

    Before you go on the trip, get a pic of your mom or sister's rear.

    You can use it for family blackmail forever.

    I'm going to Florida tomorrrow and will post tons of pics when i get back

    This is actually a pretty hard lens to use because when its at 10mm (most fisheye-like), its almost TOO wide. You can see my reflection in the first pic and it was actually impossible for me to get the shot without me being in the reflection. Overall i really like it so far. I don't like the fisheye effect all the time and feel like sometimes its overdone but i'm happy with it so far

    I want one so much now, I know you can't really compare them but it's between this or a Sigma 10-20mm.

    Nice pictures anyway.

    Those are pretty cool, I want to get into photography now, as a hobby. All these people on here make it look easy. :eek:

    I think the lens would look good for horizons like water lines and scenery.

    Nice shots. IMO I think some pictures look a little weird though. I like the plane and pizza shots though and the water scene.

    I like the Diablo picture and the water scene. In general I think it's just too much distortion for car pictures (that Diablo picture is nice though as I said...)
    To get your reflection out, you could have used a tripod. Just a thought :)

    Scott, great pictures, esp. of the lightning and the guy on the bike

    I didn't have it with me and i still think i would have got the tripod in the pic too



    Thanks for the comments guys. Of course, these weren't my only pics from Florida. I was trying not to overdo it since i think that too many fisheye pics can get annoying but i figured you guys would want to see a sample


    Btw, what do my colours look like in the pics on your screens? Do they appear dull? I saw some of my pics on another screen and was shocked. This dell laptop isn't the best screen to edit photos on, the colours are not too good on it
