Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM review
3 April 2014
Summary: The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM remains a slight oddity and yet an extremely fun lens to use. The optical quality is impressive for such a wide lens and the performance is exceptional, from the autofocus to the weather-sealing.
Excerpt: This unique lens offers two lenses in one for full frame camera users. At 8mm it provides a circular fisheye image, with a 180 degree field of view in all directions. With the lens zoomed to 15mm, the lens offers a diagonal fisheye image, with a field of view of 180 degrees from corner to corner.
Pros: Excellent sharpness, in the centre of the image area, Superb build, Unique zoom design effectively gives full-frame users two lenses in one, Useful for owners of multiple Canon camera formats
Cons: Expensive, No way to lock the lens at either end of the focal range, High CA levels towards edges of the picture area
