There's tons of stuff done with that lens, out there. Most fisheye stuff off of DSLRs you'll see was done with this lens.
Stablizers? Flycam brand if you're cheap, Glidecam brand if you have more cash to throw down.. Opteka X grip or something if youre REALLY cheap... either that, or just any random stabilizer setup you find on amazon/ebay will likely do better than none.. or just DIY if you're into that.
Have a nice day, Bluename.
