  • Pros: Unique, zooming fish-eye design. Full circular image at wide angle. Full-frame compatibility. L-series construction.
  • Cons: Hood must be removed for full circular effect. Expensive.

Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM review

TechRadar UK
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Canon's new fisheye zoom camera lens is like having two lenses in one package
  • Pros: Dual circular and diagonal fisheye options on full-frame cameras, very good image quality, excellent L-series build quality and ring-type USM autofocus
  • Cons: Lacks circular/diagonal versatility on APS-C and APS-H cameras, fisheye distortion effect is minimised at 15mm on an APS-C camera, very expensive for a fisheye lens

  • 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.
