“Lens distortion… desirable or unwanted?
I love it though!”
When I first started photography with film during my primary school days in the late 80s, I did hear of this lens call the 16mm fisheye. In those days, this is a very expensive lens which I can barely afford as a student. I gave it a miss. Now into the digital era, this lens came into my sight again in the form of a more affordable 10.5mm.
I was then building up my range of APSC lenses and I pondered whether to purchase this lens or not. I also wondered whether I should invest in a lens which will give distortion. I borrowed one from my friend and tried it for a week. I told myself, “Wow, wow, wow! I must get this lens.”
