Fisheye Lenses for my HD camera?
I have noticed in some of the recent ski movies that alot of wide-angle/fish-eye lenses are being used. If you have seen Hunting Yeti yet you will see it used quite a bit. Their lenses don't have a ton of distortion like you would see in a skate video, but the shots are still very wide.
I have a chepish wide-angle already that you can see the edge of the lens through and its pretty hard to focus, so I am guessing I will have to spend 800+ for something that will look good.
So, I know nothing about these lenses really and unfortunately you can't see the type of image they will produce on B+H, so anyone have experience with any of these?

BTW - the difference between the $880 and the $500 fisheye lenses is the amount of distortion to the outside. The more expensive lens will distort the center of the frame less, letting you have a somewhat normal subject in a fisheye environment. The cheaper lens distorts everything equally = less aesthetic IMHO.
