    We've had them for ages ... just use a 180 deg fisheye, but orient it vertically.

    Would that 220 degrees be horizontally, vertically or diagonally?

    I have enough problems composing with a 16mm lens, trying to keep extraneous items out of the frame and my shadow out of the image in early morning pictures. With this ; good grief.

    What do people photograph with this type of lens? It would seem more of a novelty than the go to lens in your arsenal.

    My problem with this lens would be how the heck to avoid shooting my protruding belly.

    LOL :-) Exactly why I'm not shooting with this lens :-)

    I personally love the super-wides and shoot a lot with my Tokina 11-16mm lens, and usually at the 11mm setting. It is a tough lens to shoot with as changing your point of view by just a fraction of an inch / a few mm can sometimes make the difference between a mediocre shot and a great shot.
