What's your favorite Fisheye Lens for a 1.6 Crop?

I am in the market for a fisheye lens for my Xti but it looks like all of the "proper" fisheye lenses are for the non-crop bodies.

Have you guys found a good fisheye that produces exaggerated images on a Xti body?

Even on crop bodies, fish eye lenses will produce distorted and exaggerated images anyways. Of course its not as extreme as on a full frame, but it still gets the job done. The canon 15mm is a great choice.

this was taken with a crop body + fish eye.

Would you consider third-party brands? Check out the Tokina 10-18mm: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/To...f35-45-Fisheye . It's designed for cropped sensors, and it isn't very expensive.

Nikon rules! Enjoy your lens. Best I've used.
I'm in the process of upgrading to the 700 as well - need to find a buyer for the 200. You know you can use the DX with the 700, right?
