Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM fisheye

Hands-on Review

We are including the images used in the video for your reference only.

Images below was taken with Canon Fisheye at 8 mm focal distance. we are not going to comment on the image settings or the exposure, we just want to see the sharpness and the deformation whihc in this case is extreme. as mentioned in the film, there are not many applications for this shot in the photography scene

Image below is taken with the 10 mm focal distance and is just a larger version of the above. Please note the side chromatic aberration on the image as the edges are turning blue-ish. Due to the specil nature of this lens, I do not believe this issue is important as the image should be cropped to make more sense

And finally we have reached the other side of the zoom spectrum with the 15 mm focal distance. Thsi is an usable picture in my opinion, and if you love the deformation effect , than this is perfect as the depth of field is very deep, almost everything is in focus

This is just a short outline of our Canon 8-15 mm Fisheye review and for more details you can watch the film above. we will be not stressing in regards to the technical data too much as it becomes long, boring and too technical, we love to focus only on the essential features. At the end of the day who cares how many groups of glass elements are inside. But we care about the final result.
