  1. Suggestions for new lens - currently using 400D and 60D w/ Tamron 17-50

    Question

    Hey everyone

    I have been making some half decent 360s with my NN3 MKII and 400D w/17-50 lens, but I want to try and "up my game" a little, so I would like some suggestions on what lens to purchase to use with both my camera bodies and my NN3.

    Cheers

    p.s. budget would be <£400 but I would also like to know if there is a particular lens that people would recommend - and also avoid!

    So you would recommend the Sigma 15mm?

    A 15mm fisheye is not normally recommended for APS-C cameras; it's mostly used on fullframe cameras. Of course, a lot depends on quite what you mean by wanting to "up your game". The 15mm fisheye can certainly be used but it will give you a smaller stitched panorama, albeit with around half as many shots as for your 17mm lens. The Tokina 10-17mm fisheye would be more versatile and is worth considering.

    Thanks John. By upping my game I mean producing better 360s in a much quicker time. A fisheye would allow me to produce them quicker, but will quality suffer? I did look at the Tokina, but I have also read on the forums that this lens isn't a particular favourite to use.
