Great Glass!

  • Excerpt: If you are looking for a sharp ultra wife angle lens for specialty shots, then look no further. This is a great lens whether you are shooting in tight spaces, want to show a large vista, or get a little creative with the fish eye. Highly recommended!

No other lens can capture more info

  • Excerpt: 180 degrees...that says it all. With a single shot you can capture just about everything in front of you. I've learned to live with the precariousness of the front glass and lens cap - minor problems compared to the awesome images this lens can deliver. Be careful with close-ups, though; you might be closer to your subject than you realize. I use it on a 5D MkII, mainly for architectural photos.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Extremely Poor Lens Cap

Tropicdiver, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have no gripes about the lens, itself, as I enjoy using it. My only complaint is about the lens cap. It is extremely poorly designed and it will fall off when least expected. How Canon has not been able to come up with a better design is beyond me.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Cap Easily Falls Off, Poorly Designed Lens Cap

Unique perspective

  • Excerpt: This fisheye lens is awesome! I bought it because I wanted to challenge myself to get more creative, and also for those times when a very distorted view is desirable. This lens is built tough, is very compact and I'm really happy with the image quality. I would happily buy this again and again!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged

Wide angle goodness

  • Excerpt: I bought this in the attempt to upgrade from my 10-22mm (a great lens itself). I just wanted something a little wider. Just as I thought it would, it definatly delivered. I love this little gem, and am hoping to get lots of use out of it. Only down side that Adobe doesn't have a profile for it in the RAW viewer.

Great WA/Fisheye Lens

19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the Canon 8-15 f/4L Fisheye lens to create unique images with a decidedly different point of view. Images are great for a variety of events, including weddings, sporting events, etc. The Canon build and reliability is as expected and this is a high quality lens. It does take some time to get used to the associated perspective shifts, but the learning curve isn't that steep and the results are well worth it!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Love Love Love it!

  • Excerpt: I shoot action sports and this lens is awesome! I am very happy with it. Super crisp fish eye pics. Exactly what I wanted. Keep in mind that you do have a small zoom range but still need to be pretty close to your subject.
