Okay so I've recently decided that i might be getting the Canon t3i and i wanted to get a fisheye along with it. Can anyone give any suggestions on fisheye to use with the canon t3i? Also if you know of any cheaper ones that are still good let me know

These are the 2 i was looking at. If you have any suggestions about other fisheyes please let me know

Rokinon: http://www.rokinon.com/product.php?id=8

Opteka: http://opteka.com/opt65ii.aspx

Both of these are on the expensive side which i know all good lens will be. But if you have any suggestions on cheaper ones too then thats appreciated smile

^ What he said
Samyang, Opteka, Rokinon, Bower, Pro-Optic all have fisheye lens that are all the same but are just re-named. Just buy the cheapest out of them, there's no difference between them. Opteka's "6.5mm" fisheye is actually no different to an 8mm, it's like the way Odyssey says their Chase Hawk tyre is 2.4 even though it only inflates to 2.3.

I use the Rokinon 8mm on my T3i and it works well for $300. Im sure eventually Ill get the Canon 8-15mm, or the extreme fisheye. But the Rokinon looks great on the T3i and it's a perfect place to start. Usually you can get the Rokinon for about $300, not 4.
