Best Fish Eye Lens

Hey Dome Dudes

Just wondering what would be the best Fish Eye Lens for a Digital SLR for Full Dome?

I probably be using a Panasonic GH1 with 37mm converter or Canon 7D.

I'm based in London, I'd probably buy a cheaper one for experimenting but rent a good one for a final shoot.

Any ideas of where is good to rent and buy lens in London or online?

Help is much appreciated!
