  • Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Great lens with more functionality than the previous 15mm!

    A VERY UNIQUE lens indeed! While a fisheye isn't for everyone, I find that if you're in a rut photographically, put this baby on your camera! If that doesn't get you going, I don't know what will. The 8mm end provides a great true fisheye on full frame (5D MkII), and the same view as the previous 15mm fisheye (which I also own--and am presently selling on eBay). The view on a Canon 60D for example gives you a true fisheye effect at a rate of 12.8 mm. While the 10-22mm Canon is fine, it doesn't begin to compare optically, or otherwise with the 8-15mm lens.
