  • Summary: Crucially these capabilities fill a number of gaps in Canon's lens catalogue. Previously only one of the four configurations mentioned above was possible with a Canon branded lens, and it was decades old.
  • Pros: 180 degree diagonal fisheye for all Canon DSLRs., 180 degree circular fisheye for full-frame DSLRs., Tough build with weatherproofing., Optically sharp across the entire imaging circle.
  • Cons: Vulnerable-looking front element., Lens cap easily comes loose., Chromatic aberrations in areas of high contrast., Full circular fisheye only available to full-frame.
