Advanced optics for professional imaging

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM showcases over 70 years of Canon’s optical engineering heritage, boasting 14 lens elements in 11 different groups, including one aspherical and one Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) element to correct chromatic aberration and produce high-quality, high-contrast shots with excellent colour reproduction.

To maintain optimum image quality, the front and rear lens elements also feature a Fluorine Coating which actively repels water, dust and dirt, making it easier to clean the lens and leaving it unobstructed by particles.

Fast, accurate focusing and low light performance

The ultra-wide angle zoom of the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM offers a fresh take on sporting action or architecture shots, while the constant f/4.0 aperture allows faster shutter speeds to be employed for natural-looking images in low light.

A ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM), provides quick and accurate focusing when shooting and enables a full-time manual focus functionality allowing photographers to adjust the focus of any shot, even when the AF system is activated, for even greater control over image capture and improved creative flexibility.

Built for professional performance

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM features a high-grade physical design that reflects its elite performance. High resistance to both dust and water enables it to be used in a range of challenging situations, and, when used with a professional EOS body, it allows continued shooting in the harshest weather conditions. The external design also features the new exterior texture, for a high quality look and feel indicative of all new L-series models.

High quality accessories

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM is supplied with a dedicated lens cap, lens pouch and a felt-lined lens hood EW-77 for use when using the zoom at the 15mm setting, preventing lens flare.

Circular or full frame Fisheye zoom lens

There’s no need to buy two specialist lenses when the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM offers, either full frame or circular fisheye images when used with cameras with a 24x36mm (full frame) sensor. For photographers shooting with DSLR’s with a smaller sensor, full frame fisheye images are possible. With a 180 diagonal field of view, capturing the whole scene in a single image has never been easier.

L-series quality

The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are highly resistant to dust and moisture.

Fast, quiet auto focus

A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and optimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF mode.

Enhanced image quality with SWC coating

Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented Subwavelength structure coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. By eliminating the cause, the coating reduces reflections and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

Easier lens cleaning

The foremost and rearmost lens surfaces are treated with a Fluorine Coating which enables the easier cleaning of the lens surface compared to existing coatings.

A wonderfully versatile lens that enables you to switch between circular and diagonal fisheye effects with a twist of the zoom ring

The Canon EF 8–15 mm f/4 L Fisheye USM is one of few lenses in which case I had problems what to put into the “cons” section. A bit by force I decided to mention the chromatic aberration problems.

ePHOTOzine

Nobody can deny that this interesting fisheye lens performs well, is built well and offers a unique two lenses in one solution for full frame camera users, and users of multiple Canon sensor formats.

Amateur Photographer

Canon's full-frame, wideangle-to-fisheye zoom lens attempts to offer more than just a one-trick effect. Mat Gallagher finds out whether this lens really should have a place in your kit bag

Practical Photography

Seriously wide-angled fisheye lens with an equally extreme price-tag. Canon L-series fanatics take note – this is a niche lens that you won’t use every day, so approach with caution.

Here's (another) update after having used this lens for almost 2 1/2 years. This is one lens I always try to take with me just in case an opportunity presents itself.

Camera Labs

The Canon EF 8-15mm f4L Fisheye USM is a unique lens which delivers 180 degree Fisheye images to all three of its sensor formats: APS-C, APS-H and full-frame, while owners of the latter also get to enjoy full circular Fisheye images too.

The Digital Picture

Every so often, a product comes along that just blows you away - one that completely makes you rethink your photography. The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye Lens is, without a doubt, one of the most radical lenses Canon has introduced - and it is a game changer for photographers.

While we can't tell you quantitatively just how good the Canon 8-15mm &131;/4 L USM Fisheye lens is, we can say that it's both a versatile and fun lens to use. It's basically two fisheye lenses in one, offering full horizontal and vertical 180 degree coverage on full-frame bodies, and a more...

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye lens is a highly-anticipated and unique lens in Canon’s lineup. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and will give a hands-on “user report” review of it below.

Have wanted this lens for a while. So happy I went for it. Have had great results so far and have many ideas of ways to use it. Used it for star trails recently. The 90 minutes resulting image was way better than I had hoped for - see image. I would recommend this lens.

I bought this lens a year ago and i enjoyed using it! I used it for landscape photography, architecture and even for macro! This is an awesome lens but you need a learning time to get the full benefit from it.

I love the look a fisheye gives you and this lens offers great image quality and nice features that really make it stand out. The choice of rectangular or circular fisheye on a full frame body is a big plus.
