Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye

(Note: Lenses are listed in order of starting focal length)

This is really one of the lower priority lenses you should consider if you are just getting started. I would say the Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L II is a more important lens to get first, but the 8-15mm Fisheye Zoom is a tool every serious pro will eventually want to have. It is great for Extreme Wide Angle Shots, Landscapes, Event Shooting, Water & Abstract Photography. This is my favorite lens when doing surface water photography. Event shooters will love the zoom feature, Works excellent on both 1.6x and full frame cameras.

I was on the fence about this Fisheye Zoom for a couple months before I actually went for it, and I have not regretted it once. The more I shoot with it, the more I discover how useful it really is.

Im not a fan of having to have the lens hood on in order to use the cap (I usually get rid of my lens hoods as soon as I get them). Also not a fan of the curved glass but no way around this as it is a fisheye, just be really careful not to scratch it.

Canon 14mm 2.8 L II

For the most part, this is a lens that you will probably end up renting a few times before knowing if you will want to buy it. It is one of the more expensive ones on this list, and it is different in that there is very little vertical distortion in the corners. Horizontally, there is some stretching, but for architecture, landscape and other wide angle shots it is really quite a spectacular lens.

Im finding that I use it most when going for wide shots underwater and with the steadi-cam. Again, this is a very niche lens that will be one of the last you will add to your collection.

Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L II

As far as L lenses go, this is the 3rd most important lens you should get, with the Canon 24-70 2.8L being the 1st, and the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS L II being the second. More on those later.

The 16-35mm 2.8 is a MUST have general purpose wide angle lens for any kind of serious professional use. Whether you are shooting, events, sports, wedding, landscapes, even certain types of portraits, it is very, very versatile and pretty good in low light at a max aperture of 2.8.

One negative is that you will see distortion and some vignetting in the corners, otherwise, it is a GREAT lens.
