JakelaphamThanks for everyone's feedback :)
Okay firstly I am shooting stills. I have a Canon 430EX II flash so light isn't a huge problem
I actually have the Tokina 11-16 2.8 already and its my go-to lens when shooting in clubs. Really like it.
And yep current fisheye is the Rokinon 8mm 3.5 (not Samyang)
Reason for upgrading is I just find the Rokinon really shitty, and I love my 11-16. I also do a bit of video work outside clubs and the Rokinon is horrific for filming.
You also may be wondering why I am getting a fisheye when I have the wide angle. Reason being just a bit more diversity in my photos. I do it for work and the fisheye effect is nice in moderation.
Cheers for everyone's feedback :)
xnick11Thanks for giving us some more info Jake!
I think for what your fisheye lens is worth, it's going to be hard to beat. Its nice to have diversity in your photos. Fisheyes can be used for various types of images. In your case it should be used for close distance and interior photos. Get close to your subject, don't be shy!
The Rokinon 8mm may not be the sharpest lens, but its nice to keep in your bag for when you do want a different perspective on things. Honestly there really aren't too many fisheye options out there for a APS-C sized sensor.
That being said, if you already have a 8mm fisheye and a 11-16mm, then why not fill the next gap in your focal range? I would recommend you looking into the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8.
Jake, would you mind posting one of your favorite photos you've taken at a nightclub, with your Rokinon 8mm?
