This lovely shot of the Welsh countryside is well worth clicking through to see in larger size on flickr. I am very impressed with the fisheye lens's ability to cover such a wide area, with no apparent vignetting. The detail in this image literally goes on for miles. I am sorely tempted by this lens, but want to try the new fisheye attachment announced by Panasonic. It is far more economical, but I am sure not nearly so good in terms of image quality. But, that's speculation. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!
