Fisheye Lense

I am looking to purchase a fisheye lense for my Sony Z1 for weddings. Century Optics are very nice but expensive. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Don't know if it is much cheaper or technically a fisheye but I got and love the red eye 0.5x lens. It has some distortion like a fisheye and give a wide field of view plus it is 1/3" thick and weighs as much as a UV filter so it is great if you want to use it on a glidecam.

Check out vfgadgets.com for more info.

The link I sent is the manufacturer. If you give them a call they are very good at getting something to you right away. It is hard to find the correct page n their site though, here is a direct link.
