#337011 Wide Angle Lens Recommendation for a Full Frame Canon 6D?

Posted by Moose on 13 September 2013 - 03:02 PM

This is a Canon EF 15mm F2.8 Fisheye on a 5D mk III, with the 5503 port. I definitely need to get a modular port, but I love the lens.

The problem is that the damage has already been done, the image has been used without permission.

If someone opened your front door, took your car keys and proceeded to use your car to move some furniture, would you be happy enough to let it slide for the price of the fuel used? In fact, the guy who borrowed it even states he's going to pay less than that, because there are other cars out there requiring less fuel for the same distance driven.

The staff that tracks down stolen images, the software developers who build the technology to identify the images and the lawyers who send the letters all need to be paid, if these costs aren't covered by the people stealing images it needs to be added to the price paid by paying customers, and I'm sure they feel that they're paying quite enough already.

I have been diving for almost ten years and dabbling in photography on almost every dive. Equipment has been upgraded bit by bit, and I have recently been getting a lot of practice on land. I'll be doing a lot of diving in October, and thought it was about time I stopped trying to figure everything out on my own and get some inspiration from people who know what they're doing (that's you) before the trip. I just signed up, only to realise I actually already had an account created two years ago. Besides diving and photography my interests include horology, so naturally my photos tend to include both marine life and watches.

 

I guess pictures are worth more than any number of words, so here are a few introduction shots:
