Art Gallery of NSW, Fish-eye Effect

I driven passed so many times the Art Gallery of NSW and I didn't bother to capture any photos until now. I just purchased a fish-eye lens from now on any building I can capture it doesn't how wide it is. A fish eye lens give you an effective 180 degree of view. Any interior or architecture building now I can capture everything. No more excuses that I haven't got a wide angle.

There's only one wide angle lens that is missing in my camera bag. That's the 7-14mm Olympus or Panasonic. But I am thinking of the Voigtlander 10.5mm f 0.95 lens as I want to get into astrophotography and the extra stops of light really help in those situation. Usually a higher sensitivity ISO is required to do astrophotography but with the M43 system there is a limit to the camera sensor so I have to stick to fast glass to compensate for the exposure triangle. Shot it 1600 ISO and let the aperture open wide at 0.95 that should do the trick and just simply play with shutter speed from that point on. Oh well time to save up for my next lens and a new camera body.
