Sigma v Nikkor

Hi all,

I want to upgrade my equipment to produce higher quality panos. I am looking at the Canon 350d or 400d in terms of the camera but I would like some advice on which fisheye lens to go for!
The two lenses I have in mind are the new Sigma 8mm EX DG and the Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye Lens. Price wise there isn't a gulf between them.

Thanks in advance,

Paul.


Regards,

Paul.

The "new" 3.5 DG EX Sigma seems very nice and requires only 4 shots to produce a full 360 x 180 panorama.

The Nikkor 10.5mm is the superior lens but is not a straight fit to the Canon and will be 6+TB shots to produce the same panorama.

See my tutorial to do this conversion.

Regards, Smooth
