What a great lens

Donald W. Ritchey "D", Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: This is the first fisheye I've owned and this thing is a lot of fun. Its fast, sharp and takes great pictures. Obviously there is distortion with it being a fisheye lens but fixable with DxO or similar software.

Great Lens

  • Summary: This Fisheye is a great lens. There is an issue with the lens cap not staying on, but there are fixes, just google for some ideas. Whether you use this on a full frame or APS-C camera, the effects are still worth having it in your bag. I wish Canon would replace this discontinued lens with another option under the $1000 mark (right now the only Canon fisheye available is the L).

Canon FD 15mm fisheye

Michael, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: Full frame 15mm fisheye lens is totally amazing! 180 degree field of view, close focusing to 39cm Some bending , curving , but this is to be expected with a 180 degree field of view, and is an awesome perspective when shot with a low angle.

Lens cap problem solved

D. Moore, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this lens, too. Here's a tip for the loose lens cap: Pick up a roll of paper tape in the wound care aisle of the drug store. One layer of this tape along the inside lip of the cap (fold the extra half over to the outside or trim off) and you will no longer have this problem.

Great Lens

  • Summary: This is not an amateur tunnel vision fisheye, this is the real deal. Minus a bit of auto focus noise this lens is perfect. Highly recommended.

  • Conclusion: Creates very interesting fisheye photos. The lens is sharp and the auto focus seems sufficient for this ultra wide lens. However an ultrasonic focus would be nice for action pictures.
  • Pros: small, light, quite sharp at 2.8 in the centre, fairly solid build
  • Cons: no USM.

Neat lens to add variety

J. Dektas, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this lens to have as an additional option/perspective for my wedding clients. I am on the Canon 50D cropped sensor so I don't get as much of the fish eye barreling, but I like it that way. I enjoy this lens as a great ultra wide angle with just a hint of a fish eye effect so that it doesn't become too much if I use it on a few different shots.

  • Conclusion: I carry lens with me wherever I go because it is so much fun to shoot and never fails to produces the most remarkable images. I've not owned any other fisheye lenses so I can't compare it quality wise with anything. All I know is the images this lens produces consistently puts a smile on my face. I own a lot of lenses so it is quite unique in that regard. My only negative comment is the front lens cap which is restrained only by friction (felt lined cap).
  • Pros: Fun to shoot
  • Cons: Front lens cap restraint design

Great lens!!!

Ellie Mack, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this lens because I love wide angle shots and have always wanted to use a fisheye. The only reason I am giving the lens a 4 star is because as someone else mentioned it is a much older Canon lens and think they should have a new version. The quality of the pictures is wonderful. The built is great except it is older. I think this lens is perfect for someone who loves the fisheye concept but already has a nice selection of various lenses.
