1. I thought the MX-3000 was a fisheye
2. I would say try skate perception, i know when I was looking there i saw a lot of them, but most of the ones for sale there are modded...i cant remember what that means, but yeah, they added something to them
Ya I've been cruising e-bay for a couple weeks and not too much on there that isn't brand new. I lurk SP but want nothing to do with posting on there and then having primarily 12 year old kids tell me that I'm an idiot for not wanting a Death Lens.
To answer the fisheye question; the Raynox is a "semi-fisheye" meaning that you get very small amount of distortion around the edges, but it is more like an extremely wide-angle. You can't really zoom through it at all, but you don't get vignetting like you do on some of the cheaper lenses that are marketed as the fisheye - wideangle - macro all in one. From what I understand is pretty much just a good follow-cam and jib lens that is better in daylight than nighttime.
The mx-3000 can be found for 100 dollars on B+H or Adorama I believe. Its a semi-fisheye. Basically the closest you can get to a fisheye without the dumb black ring around your shot. IF you have a filter on there will be a ring just to fore warn you. But yeah...100 is how much I got mine for.
You must feel like a real alstar
Well aren't you just the coolest!
