The combination is not great. It will work and if you only want low quality small panoramas it is OK. But you would be much better off with the Sigma 8mm fisheye lens for much higher quality.

Your camera is good the lens is not so (they are very soft)

Yes it is, but quality is poor for large display.

I think you would also get better results with a Nikkor 10.5 lense, am i wrong ?

Agree.  Seems to me you are adding a fisheye LENS ADAPTER on the front of a perfectly good lens.  The FC-E9 while a fisheye is a soft lens and the over all combination very well might degrade your imaging effort.

I would go for either of the prime lenses Nikkor 10.5 or Sigma 8.

DSLR with 1.5 to 1.7 multiplying crop factor. I.E Nikon D70, Canon 30D, Fuji S3 Pro etc.

Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye (6+TB) Full Frame, Best Quality

Sigma 8mm Fisheye (4) (4+T) (4+TB) Drum Image, Next Best Quality

Peleng 8mm Fisheye (4) (4+T) (4+TB) Drum Image, Third Choice

FC-E9 with Agnos Adaptor (2) (3) Full Circular Image, Low Image Quality (least amount of work)

Regards, Smooth

Hi ozgurablak,

Typically Large Display mean the visiting persons monitor size... FULL SCREEN.  If you have a monitor that is 1024 x 768 then the panorama will be displayed that size.
