Wide As A Lens Can See


Upgraded from a Tokina 10-17 to this lens. Diffraction is much better than the Tokina This is a curvilinear lens, not a rectilinear lens. I took 8 tests shots at each focal length at the same location. These are test \/research images only, not...

Fun, Fun, Fun


A extremely fun lens to use. Provides a unique perspective that allows you to capture the feel of large spaces, objects and architecture. Flare control is outstanding even when pointed directly into the sun. Versitile as it can be used on all formats....

Amazing lens!


I purchased this lens to be used on my 5d Mark iii and the image quality is amazing. You can capture an entire scene in one frame.

Great Camera, Garbage Lens Cap


I had been looking at this lens for quite some time and decided that it was too expensive for my uses. I got lucky and received one as a gift and have had so much fun with the lens! I particularly love taking night landscape photos, and this lens is...

Canon EF wide-angle zoom lens


Although I have owned this lens less than a Month, I've been very busy using my Canon 8-15mm F/4 L Fisheye lens for ceiling architecture and it has shown itself as a formidible contender as a pro lens. Being an architectural photographer at heart, this...

Superb Lens at a Premium Price


This is a large, heavy, high quality lens. Focus is fast. Build quality is in line with other Canon L-series lenses. This lens is sharp from corner to corne, and has excellent contrast. If you're shooting with a high quality full frame sensor, the lens...

Performance Does Not Compare to Primes


This is a well built, good quality lens, but the image sharpness does not compare to the primes. For wide angle work I tend to use the 8-15 L fisheye, the 14 mm 2.8 L, and the 24 1.4L. I thought that this lens might eliminate having to carry both the...

well constructed, decent 'all around' lens

not nearly as sharp as the 14mm 2.8 l or 24 1.4l

Amazing lends


We recently bought this lens for a trip to Hawaii and we found it takes great pictures. It allows us to take pictures which are a little different from what we usually produce. Previously we were limited by what we could get from our 16-35, the 8-15 is...
