I have one for Canon and using a fisheye is harder than it looks. but at this price, if it's well worth experimenting with.
Nah, don't worry. The people will always look like that with a fisheye, no matter what you do.
If you mean that it's hard to get a worthwhile shot, that's true. You really gotta get up close and personal to get any subject detail (vs just a wide-angle distorted shot of the world.) IMHO, you can do fun things with kids that don't look too wacko, particularly if you undistort them. Adults, however, probably wouldn't appreciate the way they look.
Keep in mind this:
On APS-C cameras, the pictures will fill the entire frame or screen. On full frame cameras, the lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close images will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect.
So it's a full-image fisheye for most users (on APS-C) and a circular fisheye for FF users. Tempted to get one since I have both formats...hmmm..
I had bad experience with the FE8M version (older version) it got water in it by just being around a water fall... , no i didnt stand in the water fall i stood decent enough so my camera lens wont get wet, but somehow the water still get in it. i read other review said that these lens can get dust in extremely quick compare to other brands. But for this price im buying one anyway. just have to avoid dust and water at all cost. ( avoid shooting in windy and moist condition)
I used both FE8m and HD8M , i have to say HD8M is huge improvement just for the removable hood. it made my life much easier. but bigger and heavier than older version i have no idea why.
so it is a bit bulkier, but i still didnt notice image quality change
another note is the focus ring is a joke. just set to infinity and you are all set.
