The lens really becomes a fisheye for full format DSLR's once you got rid of the lenshood. The lens works well with may D700. The only thing I wanted to ask, in case somebody already has experience with this lens, is if you have noted the fact, too that the hyperfocal setting is reached already if you set the lens at approx. 1,8 meters. In fact if I set the lens at infinity the focus indicator in the D700 tells me to turn the ring back. I have checked it under live view as well, but when the lens is focused correctly it is set at about 1,8 meters. The pictures show the shaved Samyang lens and the modified lens cap. I got the lens from www-foto-tip.pl out of an ebay auction. They were shipping the lens ultra fast via UPS.
