  • Lens Advice

    I was looking at the Tokina 11-17mm zoom fisheye lens for my 40d and came across the 12-24mm Super Wide zoom. I have other uses for a wide lens (other than pano). I notice that most use fisheyes for pano. What are the advantages of using a fisheye, and what are the caveats of using a wide vs a fisheye?

    I think you mean the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye. On 40D, you only need 8 shots at 10mm. You need 18 shots for 12-24mm at 12mm.
    fisheye=less shots with lower output resolution.
    rectilinear wide angle=more shots with higher output resolution.
