I need some help. I would like to have a very wide angle lens to shoot at my weddings... (fisheye look) and I need a wide angle to do some interior building shots...

is there a good lens for both or do I need to get 2 lenses?

A fisheye can only be a fisheye. There are some extreme wide angles like Nikon's 12 -24 that would be great for interiors.

By the way, where the heck have you been?

Good to see you back on the board. I took a little break this winter, but now I'm back too. Glad to hear things are going good for you.

Ummm...Pentax used to make a highly regarded 14 mm/f2.8 wide angle, and an 8.4 mm/f 2.8 fisheye. What mount do you need?

And Mike's right, you can't "unfisheye" a fisheye - although maybe with a LOT of Photoshop ...

I'd suggest that an extremely wide lens would probably be more useful in general, but that's just my opinion.

I was just shooting with my 10-22mm lens for interiors yesterday.. decent lens..

of course, that's mounted on my 20D bodies..

Fisheye,... I almost never use it any more.. it looks like a "warped" 24mm lens.. just ugly.. When I get meself the new 5D [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] I will use that fishy thing once again.. It's a really nice lens..that's for sure...

why will the lens give different results on the 5D? Don't they have the same magnification factor?

I had a Canon Fish eye (15mm) for a while took the shot below with it.
Sold it when I got a Canon 14mm.
