A Tough Build
Allowing Dependable Shooting

Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM fisheye Lens Top ViewThe first fisheye zoom in the world providing both circular and full frame photos, due to a severe wide-angle focal spread of 8-15mm. Supplanting the 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, this new Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye lens is the newest member of the Canon L-series family of professional optical lenses, presenting outstanding image quality, fixed aperture throughout the entire zoom range plus a tough build that allows dependable shooting in challenging outdoor environments.

When matched with a Canon full-frame DSLR, such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark II or the Canon 1Ds Mark III, a professional photographer now has choice of acquiring full-frame or circular fisheye pictures, allowing them to observe a scene in a entirely fresh and unique method. This fresh selection level allows enhanced artistic flexibility when capturing scenes like the sky at night, where the complete 180 horizontal and vertical fields of view (FOV) permit acquiring every detail with incredible clarity all in a single image.

When employed with EOS bodies containing an APS-C or APS-H sensor, the EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye creates a more time-honored, full frame fisheye image. A zoom-lock switch on the body of the lens allows for limiting the the range to the focal length that makes certain of the absolute best available full-frame viewpoint without destroying the image by allowing vignetting around the edges. C and H indicators can be found adjacent to the zoom ring, showing the wide-angle zoom place where shooting without vignetting is feasible with whichever sensor, permitting photographers to achieve the most favorable results while using any EOS body. ✓
