I added another lens to my arsenal recently. For many a moon I have longed for a fisheye lens. However, for a lens of limited use, the prices are often astronomical. However, after doing much research I did find a few that were priced reasonably. Not one this guy’s bank account would call cheap, but certainly affordable. Don’t worry, Naima and Foster won’t be missing any meals.
Bower 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Manual Focus Lens
This is the first picture I ever took with this sweet baby:
Here are the technical specs on the new toy:
f/Stop Range: f/3.5 – 22
Minimum Focus Distance: 12″
Angle of View: 180 degrees
Groups/Elements: 7/10 (hybrid aspherical lens)
I have to admit, I’ve already fallen in love with the little guy. If you are wondering, the next planned equipment upgrade will probably be studio lighting. However, this might be a little bit. I have to finish painting the studio.
Speaking of which, who wants to help paint the studio?
