EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
The 15mm f/2.8 fisheye has a proven track record as Canon's pro-grade fisheye lens for a wide range of applications, from underwater use (in a protective underwater housing!) to scientific work. Especially on full-frame digital SLRs, its ability to transform any subject into something vivid and different has been prized by many different types of photographers. In HD video recording with EOS SLRs, the 15mm f/2.8 has energized a whole new group of shooters, with its ability to change the look of video images in a way few traditional video cameras are capable of.
- A great "next lens" for working pro shooters looking for new ways to add visual excitement to their work – especially if they regularly use full-frame digital SLRs
- Excellent overall image quality and sharpness, so it's well-suited to specialized documentary or scientific work that calls for fisheye ultra-wide coverage
- Popular choice for underwater shooters, and various third-party underwater housings and dome ports are made specifically for this lens
- Can be used on any EOS camera; with most EOS SLRs (aside from full-frame bodies), the ultra-wide effect is reduced because of smaller sensor's "lens conversion factor"
