Canon 8-15mm f4 Fisheye Zoom


The long awaited Canon 8-15 f 4 Fisheye Zoom is being shipped by Canon, which means they will start popping up in stores this week. I already know of at least 2 locations in the good ol USA that has them in stock (although I doubt for long). I would have purchased from these locations myself if I wasn't already on the waiting list to get one of the first ones here on Maui (which means I will get it the day it arrives here). If you are absolutely sure you want to buy one, leave a comment and I will send you a link to where to find it.

This is an extremely unusual lens in that it is able to shoot a 180 Degree field of view at 8mm on a full frame sensor, in which case the image will be distorted to fit a circle. The lens can also zoom out to 15mm, but on a crop body this would be closer to a 24mm. It will be interesting to test it out and I am looking forward to posting some sample images.
