I just bought a Rokinon Fisheye for $300 from Amazon. It's about 30 bucks cheaper than it normally sells for, and while I'd like to get it cheaper than I did, I've been wanting a fisheye to play with for a while. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008X1C4IY/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
But I'm composing shots in my mind (before I have the lens in hand) and I guess my question is, do yall bother following the rule of thirds when you are using a fisheye? Do yall shoot your subject in the center of the frame so there is minimal distortion, and then recompose in post and place the subject along the third?
I'm excited to have a new toy, but my concern is that I don't like wide angle photography as I have presently experienced it (18-55mm kit lens and @ 24mm with my 24-105) all on a crop sensor 60D. So I realize that doesn't really qualify as wide angle since it is 24-35ish respectively.
But again... kinda excited to have a new toy to try and figure out. I'm ok with the manual aperture and I'm ok with it being soft at f/3.5 since I plan on shooting at f/5.6 to f/8. And I'm ok with it being all manual focus, though it really shouldn't matter much considering 8mm naturally has a large depth of field.
