New Lens: Samyang 8mm Fisheye MF

I bought this a few days ago. A cheap (279 euros roughly) and cheerful fisheye which works well. On cameras below the d90 it won't recognise the lens so you need to run in manual mode and ideally get a light meter (otherwise a bit of trial and error is required).

I still need to get used to composing with such a wide angle/distorted view (usually I stick with my 50mm now or use the 70-300mm for wildlife work) but overall I'm very happy with it!
