  • 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.

Canon 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye Zoom Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
17 May 2012
  • 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

13 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 USM L Fisheye is a more than welcome addition to the Canon lens lineup. The combination of circular and full frame fish-eye in a single lens is a unique offering in the market. It is also capable of delivering technically decent results.

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
