I know the principles of lens length but how does a fish eye zoom work? It already covers nearly 180 degrees?

Yep, it's possible. Canon released a new one less than a year ago... check out dpreview for more info, but basically when it's at it's widest setting it's a fish-eye, when it's zoomed out it's "just" a super-wide angle. From what I understand it's a bit more effective on full-frame cameras but can be used on APS-C as well... not really a technical explanation but here's the link... http://www.dpreview.com/news/1008/10082616canon8mm15mm.asp

Basically it creates an effect a bubble type image if used in certain situations I however wouldn't nessacarrally buy one due to the price unless my work was based around archetecture or landscape photography when used for portraiture it creates a very distinct image unless used from a certain distance.

Sigma makes one i believe and its pretty much the only true fish eye zoom. If you google fisheye zoom you'll find it. I could be wrong about the manufacturer, but there is one available.

A fish eye zoom. Is that even possible? I worked at B and H for 3 years and never heard of that.
