Fish eye lens

Hi everyone!
Happy New Year!
I'm thinking about fish eye lenses!!! I know that canon do one for £££££ but on eBay I can see fish eye lenses for £20. What's the difference. The ones on eBay look as though they mount on top of your existing lens. Is this the case? Are they any good?
Thanks,
Ceri

Re: Fish eye lens

Souds like you have seen a lens/filter that sits in front of the lens you have on your camera. I've no idea if they are any good or not, but for £20 you can give it a try.

I doubt that the quality of the lens will be anywhere near that of a proper fish eye lens that will, as you say, cost hundreds of pounds.

Try this out... Rokinon FE14M-C 14mm F2.8 super wide angle.

Available on Amazon. They make a true fisheye too. Just ordered mine. Around $370.00 US

Hope that helps! Cheers

Re: Fish eye lens

I would be surprised if those screw on fish eye attachments are any good, but you never know. I have a Samyang 8mm Fisheye on my canon and have had some really good creative results with it. They are really good value for a fisheye at around £200 new, you will struggle to buy any other proper fish eye at a better price.
