Pros: Optical quality - Constructive quality - Versatility (of its kind)

Cons: it's gutsy and unstable - it's not a real zoom, it's basically a bi-focal

Opinion: It is a professional achievement that allows you to get the best possible results in fisheye footage. Even at full openness, it maintains more than enough quality for professional use. Closing a two stop - as always - gives the best. The only "defect" that I have encountered is the precariousness of the front cap, which must be grafted on the hood, uncomfortable to remove and put depending on the set focus. , in the end, to gluing the two parts by getting a "stopper" stable for when I set the lens, with its front face and bent very exposed to the risk of scratches and abrasions. The lens hood is totally useless with this lens. The focal lengths used with fruit using the full size are the extreme ones, that is 8 mm (circular fisheye, angle 180 ° on all the size) and 15 mm (rectangular fisheye, with angle of 180 ° on the diagonal only of the size). Intermediate focal lengths are essentially used when using apsc or apsh sensors; with full format, they return images with a growing "mechanical" vignetting until they reach the circular photo that can be obtained with the 8mm.

Pros: Quality at the core, firmness, clarity and colors throughout the frame, little aberration

Cons: Price

Opinion: To be a fish eye senz else this light has a general quality to the top. Compact and lightweight when mounted on standard bodies 1 unbalanced a little the handle. I was Canon would use less expensive materials; This would make the optic more attractive in my view has for this reason a lower price. Usually the fish eye is used little and does not require absolute quality, better to spend less to use it when it happens. Nell used is good but the Samyang 12mm ff and to consider given that costs 1/3 and works equally well. At the center of the Canon 8-15 deforms relatively little the picture and this allows you to use it to take pictures of fun group. It has great colors and shallow aberration in relation to the focal width, of course, always keeping in mind that remains a fish eye. Beautiful, fun, but ...... Too expensive.

Pros: excellent image quality, a choice of circular and diagonal fisheye

Cons: Diaphragm not bright (for those who make night photos)

Opinion: I used this fisheye in different trips and I was very satisfied; compared to the previous Canon 15mm f / 2.8 it is vastly superior in terms of image quality and construction quality. The ability to choose between circular and diagonal fisheye is very innovative and was convenient on several occasions; personally prefer the diagonal fisheye, but in some cases I was able to exploit the fish move and I was back comfortable have it available in the same goal. Another distinctive feature of this lens is its outstanding macro capabilities; It has a 0.39x magnification ratio that lets you take great macro acclimatized. The only fault I could find is the f / 4, dim, that in the night photos obliged to raise a lot of the ISO; for those who snaps prevantemente day is not a problem. He 'a specialized lens, but for those who love the fisheye or macro wants to devote himself to set recommend it very much!

Pros: Sharpness, good resistance to flare

Cons: Perhaps the lack of a protective filter to the lens.

Opinion: Skeptical until its purchase, after it tested a Canon Day in Franciacorta in 2014 on APS-H, I decided to buy this Fisheye to have something to use to below 16 mm classic Canon EF 16-35 F4, perhaps give a more creative touch to your photos and to "close" the range of 8 to 105 mm in F4. Initially the use of 8 mm, on FF, I was not impressed, the circular image is is particular, but in my opinion tiresome after a few shots. Different and 'use by 12 mm (approximately) to rise, which is appreciated as very wide angle, especially ideal in particular portraits, sports and why not on the geometry of buildings and landscapes (use this lens for close-up pictures of rally cars in a static position, or the inside of the cockpit of planes or cars). It 'a particular objective, because incentive to look, as noted by others, points of view not convenzionali.rnTecnicamente nothing to say, I think it is an excellent lens:robust, very compact and solid construction! The zoom ring works very well and does not have any type of game, to the validity of the excellent build quality. A TA center is crystal clear and the angles are more than acceptable. Closing the image quality improves across the frame, giving the images very sharp and contrasted. Good, in my opinion, the resistance to flare, while for chromatic aberration turns out to be, always, in my opinion, very minimal and therefore easily eliminated through the software; good resistance to flare. Autofocus very precise. rn

Pros: Great lens, sharp and contrasted quite correct.

Cons: Perhaps the cost but it is perhaps the only zoom with these specifications.

Opinion: is a great zoom quite correct from 13 to 15, while 8 to 12 distorts as it is logical immaginare.Quindi you can use it both as a good wide-angle (pushed) both as a lens for use on the effects particolari.Io 5d MARII and are satisfied with this lens for both its ductility that yield of the details to the whole apertura.la distorsine is minimal in the case where it is to be used as a simple wide angle.
