For my birthday this year Russ bought me a Meike fish eye lens!

I absolutely love this lens!

The lens is manufactured in China, but so far it has been exceeding our expectations!

Get yourself a fish eye lens too!

Update: Unfortunately the Meike Fish Eye Lens wasn't made as well as we thought. We ended up returning the fish eye lens twice due to the focus ring breaking. It might have been just out luck and we received defective lenses, but now we urge you purchase this product with a side of caution. The photos turn out great, a very unique perspective to the world. A better fish eye lens for purchase is being researched, this is one type of lens you really must try for yourself!
