I can understand, but I'm not just not a fan of the fisheye look.
This is the problem with fisheye lenses in general - people don't understand what they do or how to use them.
Tell me which of these was taken with a fisheye:
I agree, there are a ton of bad fisheye photos out there, and these are good examples of proper use. Even still, I don't like being limited to keeping the lens perfectly level. If they made a tilt-shift fisheye, I could probably get on board with that
The second one wasn't perfectly level, it was corrected (not defished) later. Software is good for that now, and a fisheye provides for more options, including cropping and defishing.
