Hi Frank:

Yes, the Arsat. I originally bought it to try out the idea of a fisheye 
for 6x6, before spending a lot more money for an F-Distagon for the 
Rollei 6008i.

I want to try the 30mm Arsat fisheye on a 4x5 body. It should give me 
about an 85mm image circle, which will fit nicely on the 4x5 format.

It's going to snow here again tomorrow and I'm planning on taking the R8 
out for a spin with the R/80-200 zoom.  I used the Rollei 6008i with the 
180mm in yesterday's storm.
