Hoping to use cash towards buying a bigma.

Re: for sale Olympus 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye ED Zuiko

That's a good used price you are offering there.

I am going to buy one through a friend of mine in the states, new from B&H. It will enable me to cut down from 30+ shots for a panorama, down to only 8 (6 round +1 up +1 down). It also frees up post processing time in stitching and removing of "ghosts" in stitching.

Good luck with the sale, and I'm sure the lucky buyer will be happy.

I am looking forward to playing with the lens.

I would give you great seller feedback...but this is not ebay. This is my second purchase from Dave.

Have a great Holiday.

But it will reduce the number of pixels you have in the image. Might be significant if you want to produce a 'virtual' scene that you can zoom in on.

True, but the virtual tours I build are limited by Adobe Flash' limitations, and normally a single panorama (360 x 180) is no more than 2 mb in size (image wise) so a lot has been cut down (from the original 100+ MB contained in 29 images used). Normal audience with normal internet connections and off the shelf computers in today's world, would never wait for a single 100mb pano to load, even if the Flash limit didn't exist.

So for today's world, I am in no need to worry too much about the reduction in available pixels when shooting only 8 pictures, rather than 30.

With different technology available, or other special projects, where a virtual tour would be projected with laser onto a cinema sized screen, it would of course be reason for me to shoot with as many pictures as possible, with as high a resolution as possible.

For now I am safe from such "situations"... but probably not for long.
