    Huram which camera? The Kievs aren't that much more money then that adapter. Somebody I think makes a less then full frame one for 35mm cameras to.

    I use a Canon Eos Elan with a 28-80mm zoom (has a 58mm threading for filters/etc).

    Close John but it's 2mm short-) It's okay not a big problem cutting filters for the rear.

    That's an 8mm fisheye for 35mm cameras. It's not full frame and it'll need an adapter [M42 mount I think] for a Canon camera. You might want to check what the lens averages on Ebay.

    That's right, they were also called the "full sky" lens early on.

    It was confusing: "Mounting is 38mm diameter with 36mm diameter threads"

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    There's some loss in quality - but they the image is so distorted it really doesn't matter. They're a lot of fun.

    They're great when you're right in the middle of things - get in close and catch then environment (actually they are good for doing environment maps for computer graphics).

    They're also good for making CD labels:

    So the lens came and it came with the wrong mount. Ooops. The seller said send it back so I've sent it back. Other then holding it in front of a camera I didn't get very far with it. I didn't see much distortion in the corners on 6x6. Oh well. Lets see how quickly I get my money back.
