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....

Excellent lens

 

One of the most important things about this lens is that it can be used as a wide angle without distortion on a smaller sensor camera like 50d,60d,70d etc. at 15mm. You can still have the fisheye if you want - but can be used also for car interiors,...

The other day, I went out on a photo shoot to exercise my new Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens. This lens produces circular 180º fisheye images with full-frame cameras at 8mm, and diagonal 180º fisheye images at 15mm. With APS-C and other...

A different perspective of The Liberty Bell

 

I recently went to Philadelphia for a day trip. My business partner had never been to Philly, so we went. We were at the Liberty Bell exhibit. I had photographs of The Bell, so I was standing off to the side watching her and a mutual friend...

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. The lens cap does fit loosely but a minor adjustment helps it stay on tight.

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...
