    I'm looking for a reasonably priced fisheye lens for my Nikon D40. A Nikkor 10.5mm is way above my budget!
    I'm a bit of a novice to the whole lens thing so I'm getting confused between fisheye lenses and adapters...?
    Can anyone point me in the right direction of what to look for at a reasonable price/quality.
    Thanks

    I wouldn't bother, they're all very expensive and I reckon the novelty factor would wear off quickly.

    Is there any reason why you want a fish eye lens? Most people see them as 'fun' lenses. If you want a lens to get more stuff in the frame maybe look at a wide angle lens?

    Take a look at the 10-20mm Sigma lens. This will work with the D40 due to it having the autofocus motors built into the lens, you shold be able to pick one up for about £250 second hand.

    Buy a diana f+ lens mount for £10 and then the fisheye adaptor for £25 both from the lomography store, or ebay.
