  • Summary: This was my fault for not knowing I guess, but if you have a small censor camera and want that great fisheye effect, you won't get it with this.
  • Pros: Great wide angle
  • Cons: No fisheye effect for small censor cameras.

Not good for Canon Digital Rebel or 20D

  • Summary: For a better fisheye for your Canon 20D, try an 8mm fisheye.
  • Pros: Nice quality lens, good quality glass.
  • Cons: Does not provide a very wide angle when used on a digital camera with a 1.6x crop. (Canon Digital Rebel and Canon 20D) Fisheye effect is minimal on these cameras

  • Conclusion: I bought this lens for use on my 1ds. After taking a few test shots and inspecting them I was dismayed to see the amount of CA around the edges, almost like looking at a 3D movie without the glasses on! I returned the lens the following day.
  • Pros: Centre of image very sharp. Fisheye distortion!
  • Cons: Edge of image CA makes lens unusable on 1ds.

  • Conclusion: I had this lens for only about a month. I like the angle of view, but I could not deal with the distortion on the sides - yeah, yeah, it's supposed to be a "fisheye". I had the fortunate or unfortunate opportunity to play with a Leitz Super-Elmar 15mm rectilinear lens on my 10D - now THAT is what I...
  • Pros: Relatively inexpensive, and it looks cool.
  • Cons: Distorts like crazy.
