360 degree lens is achieveable. It is a mirrored surface like the inside of a ball - they have had it out for about 10 years I think (if my memory serves me correct). Do a search for 360 degree images in photography and you might find it.

Bill you said 1.2 50mm cheap? I think they are cheap compared to the original retail price, but the last one I saw on ebay went for about $300.00. Most photographers say these lenses are ashtrays now, but try to get one to give them away!

Also, I had heard a rumour that Canon made a .97 50mm lens - now that would be fast!!

I said 50-55mm F1.2-1.4. Some of the lenses I see for "cheap" are FD/FL mount Canon glass, 55mm F1.2. I have seen them under two hundred dollars. Another good one is the 50mm F1.4. I have seen SMC ones go for $40.

The 50mm Canon lens you have heard of is either the newer (first started making them 15+ years ago) EF mount F1.0 (these run about $2600 new) or the old early 1960's S-mount F0.95. They now run about $500 but I wouldn't want to use a lens that old with that mount. I'm more than happy with a 1.2-1.4.

Thanks for the correction Bill, you are right - you did say 1.2-1.4. I got caught on the 1.2 part!
