Looking for a fisheye lens?

I have a Canon Rebel Ti and a Nikon D40. I really want a fisheye lens. Is there one for either of those? If so, where? If not, what kind of camera should I get to use with a fisheye?

    Go for the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye-zoom.

    You can find it for only Nikon D40 (works only on cropped sensor cameras).

    This lens offers a true 180 degree diagonal fisheye view at the 10mm setting and goes up to 17mm ultra wide angle non-rectilinear, thus giving you much more creative possibilities.

    It is also much cheaper than hte Nikon 10.5mm and at the same time of very high image quality/sharpness.

    Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens. All good but is about £500

    For the amount of money you are going to spend on it and the amount of shooting you will do with it, it is not an economical decision. I bought a lens one time for one picture that I thought I could get with it. That could not be done and you could not even use a fisheye to get a reasonably perspective. Fisheyes will warp perspective most often.

    I have the Tamron 11-18mm for Canon. I've been pleased with the results I've gotten with it. I think they also make one for a Nikon mount.

    I got mine fairly recently for $400 new, with warranty.
