Angle Macro Fisheye

Angle Macro Fisheye
Another Canon AE-1 lens question?

I’ve been looking, mostly in vain, for a fisheye attachment lens for my Canon AE-1. I like the LOMO fisheye cameras, and the type of pictures one gets with them, but I’d prefer an attachment lens.

Anyway, I found this one on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/0-42X-FISHEYE-LENS-W-MACRO-FOR-CANON-AE-1-AE1-A1-T70_W0QQitemZ120134849438QQihZ002QQcategoryZ106875QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

and it left me slightly confused. Their example questions don’t look fisheye to me, and they have it as a Wide Angle/Fish Eye Lens. Wide angle is a different thing, correct? Does this look like a fisheye?

Or, if you know of where I can find a better one?
too bad i don’t have $700 to spare….

I have a similar supplementary lens, and it can be used to give either wide angle or fish eye, depending upon the lens that you mount it on.

This lens will screw onto the front of a normal prime or zoom lens using the filter threads. The ad says that they provide adaptors, but it would pay to check what your current filter diameter is and make sure that they can provide that size.

I mount mine onto either a Canon FD 50mm or 28mm lens, as well as Nikon lenses with the same filter diameter. That gives the equivalent to 21mm or 12mm focal lengths. 21mm is not quite a fish eye effect, but 12mm certainly is.

I am not sure what reduction in f-stop results, but you should expect some.

The photo they are using might have been taken with a normal lens around 50mm, which would not result in as pronounced fish eye effect as if it were taken on a shorter lens.
