OK, but just how much more can you get in the shot with 8mm instead of 12mm? I set up my tripod next to my desk and took two shots from the same position, one with a 12mm lens, the other with 8mm. Quite a difference don't you think? What's more, in this shot the distortion is rather more apparent than in the first image in the post.

Quite a fun lens with heaps of potential for creating quite striking shots. Maybe take a look at Pawel's images and you may find yourself becoming inspired to get a fisheye lens yourself ;-)
