I am looking at hiring a fisheye for my trip to New York next week. I own a Nikon D7000 (not full frame) and keep getting confused as to which would be the best lens. Has anyone got any experience of using a fisheye with the D7000. I've found the Sigma 8mm but am not sure whether it is meant for full frame equipment or the likes of my D7000. Any help/advice wold be greatly appreciated

The 8mm is only a true FE on a full frame sensor, you need something like this.
Thanks for that Paul. All I've gotta do now is find a retailer that hires them out
What type of fisheye do you want to use rectilinear or circular ???
I just bought one of these Samyang and i can highly recommend it and they are not expensive.
I've been using the Samyang for about 2 years now and still love it
How long are you going for?
It may be more cost effective to buy when you get there.
B&H in New York have a few 2nd hand
Or if its just for fun...one of these....HERE
I used the Sigma 8mm on my D300 (same DX sensor size as yours) and now use it on my D3s. It's a bit misleading to say that it is not a proper fisheye on a crop sensor camera - it just means that the top and bottom of the image are flat. (Actually you can crop it to a rectangular format and lose less of the image than you would with the fully circular image from an FX camera. So it is actually more useful unless you want circular images!
Here is one taken with it:
Thanks for the responses folks, very helpfull. Going for the weekend only but taking 32Gb and hope to get loads of new material...bright lights, colours city scapes and I just thought NY lent itself to a bit of fisheye?
Might take a look at B&H if I have time
