Next to the tilt/shift lens, I’d wager that the fisheye lens is the most underrated piece of glass, especially when it comes to landscape photography. Sure, it’s probably an unorthodox choice and one that falls pretty low on the list. As landscape photographers, we’ve been conditioned to grab our holy trinity of lenses—the 16-35mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm (or 100-400mm)—and there is nothing wrong with that. They’re tried and true for a reason. However, one of the easiest ways to get bored or become fatigued with a particular location, especially if it’s one that you visit often, is to use the same lenses over and over. That’s where a novelty lens, like my beloved fisheye, can prove invaluable.
