    sucks about the card man, must be a bit hit and miss with the chinese cards.
    if you want a no fuss and fast card, check out the SanDisk Ultra stuff.
    thats all i have ever used, and probably ever will as i have never had an issue with them.
    also always recommended at good photography shops.
    can be pricey through a dealer, so use ebay half rrp ftw

    skizza let me know how the 70-200 2.8 goes.

    same here. never had any problems.

    been thinking pritty hard about a fisheye lately. i shoot 90% bmx/skate stuff so it would be handy. but im kind of sick of seeing fisheye shots in every second page of a skate mag!

    yeah, they are expensive, but i find it would be like a fun thing to be using at first, but would get old very very quickly.
    you can only shoot so many fish eye shots before u get sick and tired of them.

    better off getting something wide without too much distortion. and quick of course

    yeah i have a mate who shoots for bmx press, 2020 etc. didnt shoot with a fisheye for 4 years then he bought one and now its almost all he uses. it ruined his style i reckon.

    basically with a fisheye there will never be style. as theres a limit of angles etc you can use it for.

    what wide angle lense would you recomend, is for a canon aswell.

    post some of your med format work todd

    yeah fisheye is so 'this way or nothing' if that makes sense.
    very limiting, and for the outlay i don't think it's worth it.

    i dont have a scanner to do my medium format work justice lol. when i go back to uni in march ill try get it happening, they have a neg scanner there that suits 120 film.

    ill get back to you on the canon lens in a bit.

    will do about the 2.8 todd

    yeah I have the sigma 8mm fisheye, jeez it hasnt been used in a while!

    I found it cool at the time I first got it, shot with it for aaages, and now slowly stopped. In saying that, I'm going to whip it out again soon.

    Can you straighten a fisheye shot? Could make for some cool panoramic shots

    ah well serves me right for being a tight arse with the card. im still using my 1gb mirco card that used to be in my phone lol. have to go to den den town and check a few prices. should be able to pick up a decent card or two cheaply but i dont shoot that much.

    camera is going well thanks oscar, really surprised of the battery life. i have only had to charge it twice so far and thats with a few flicks and playing around. i still dont really have that much idea what im doing with it but oh well.

    really frustrating with this lens though, its great for shooting at shit like cars etc but its no good at all for buildings/scenery etc. i did try tking a series of photos to join together in photoshop but i dont have photoshop at the moment to try mashing them together.
