Canon 8-15mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

Specialized and versatile, the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM is a Canon L-series lens offering flexibility to a conventionally niche lens type. Capable of producing both circular and rectangular fisheye effects, this lens is characterized by its notable distortion and rounded image quality along with an immense 180° angle of view at the 8mm position. The optical design incorporates two ultra-low dispersion glass elements to limit chromatic aberrations and color fringing for high clarity and color accuracy, and a Sub Wavelength coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast.

Balancing the refined optics, this 8-15mm f/4 also sports a ring-type USM mechanism to enable quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed and has a protective fluorine coating on the exposed elements for use in trying environmental conditions.

Unique fisheye zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 12.8-24mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range.
Zoom allows you to change from a circular 180° fisheye look to a rectangular image. Both ends produce dramatic, creatively distorted imagery.
Two ultra-low dispersion glass elements noticeably reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
A Sub Wavelength Coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
Protective fluorine coating has been applied to the front bulbous element to resist fingerprints and smudges and to make cleaning significantly easier.
Built-in filter holder is located at the rear of the lens and accepts cut gel filters.

Canon 8-15mm f/4.0 reviews

EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 229.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love with this lens! The other day, I went out on a photo shoot to exercise my new Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens. This lens produces circular 180º fisheye images with full-frame cameras at 8mm, and diagonal 180º fisheye images at 15mm. With APS-C and other crop-frame cameras, the lens produces 180º fisheye images only. Using it on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III–a full-frame camera–I am able to get both fully circular as well as diagonal 180º fisheye images. I have been able to capture landscapes in an entirely new way, adding a great new dimension to my work. The sharpness is excellent for this kind of lens and, although the cap tends to come off a lot, the results are amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera, Garbage Lens Cap I had been looking at this lens for quite some time and decided that it was too expensive for my uses. I got lucky and received one as a gift and have had so much fun with the lens! I particularly love taking night landscape photos, and this lens is unbelievable for that purpose. The lens cap (as evident reading other 3rd party reviews) is absolutely terrible. From the first time I removed the lens from the box the cap came right off. It barely stays on with normal use. If the camera is around your neck and you hop, the Cap falls off. Great lens, very frustrating lens cap (exasperated by the fact that no UV lens cap can be used with the fisheye design).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens I mostly shoot landscape photography and bought this lens to be used with my new Canon 5D since the Canon 10-22mm was useless in this camera. Excellent lens that exceeds all my expectations and fun to use it too. Amazing colors and sharpness. For creative landscape photography all you have to do is play with the horizon line to avoid distortion so you can take real wide angle pictures without going totally fisheye, unless you really want to go totally creative and play with the fisheye at 8mm. Which is amazing too!!! When shooting close to subjects, careful with your feet or they will show in the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lens! I bought this lens for those occasional sky-wide sunrises and sunsets, when no other lens can fully capture the beauty. I also love to do wide-angle night photography of the Milky Way, and often with foreground terrain and objects illuminated by the moon. Star images are the most telling method of lens image quality over the format short of USAF 1951 bar target testing. To test this, I took my first Milky Way pictures with this lens a few nights ago, and I am VERY impressed by the tight, sharp star images, even at f/4 and at different zoom settings. See accompanying picture - Canon 60Da, 30 second exposure, f/4, ISO 2000.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Lens - But Lens Cap is GARBAGE Amazing fisheye lens. Very sharp for my panorama business. I gave it a 3 because of the stupid lens cap which is pure garbage, it's even worst than the cap on my old 15 mm f 2.8 Fish eye (which I had to sell sadly in order to afford this one). The slightest rubbing of the cap against your bag material or body will make it fall of, in which case you will have yourself a nicely scratched $ lens which will make a great door stopper! I almost can't believe Canon would release this cap in this day and age. Pure garbage! Lens gets a 5/5 from me, but the cap is a -100/5...and could destroy this lens completely!CANON are you listening?????????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other lens can capture more info 180 degrees...that says it all. With a single shot you can capture just about everything in front of you. I've learned to live with the precariousness of the front glass and lens cap - minor problems compared to the awesome images this lens can deliver. Be careful with close-ups, though; you might be closer to your subject than you realize. I use it on a 5D MkII, mainly for architectural photos. I shoot wider than I actually need and crop down later in Photoshop to loose the inevitable distortion at the edges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpest Fisheye on the market, period. We own two of these lenses for special projects that require fisheye lenses. We use them on the RED Epic Dragon and on Sony cameras with Metabones adapters. (Ironically we don't own any Canon cameras). The fact is that we tested every fisheye available on planet Earth and this is simply the sharpest, period. Trust me. Yes, the design of the lens cap is not very tough and a little stupid. Get over it. You don't buy a lens based on the lens cap. Be careful with the lens, it's a fisheye and the outer element is exposed and vulnerable. That's the nature of a fisheye. I can't believe all the people complaining about that. That's how fisheyes are. If you need to put a filter on it, there is a gel filter holder on the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Lens, not for everyone... I'm primarily a sports photographer, usually looking through some long glass... this lens certainly isn't for everyone, but I've had a lot of fun playing with it! I've used it at a wedding, got some great things putting it on a body atop a monopod and remote triggering the shutter... I'm REALLY anxious to get it to a football game and shoot the entire stadium during a home team touchdown! You certainly have to think about how to come up with something interesting with this wide of a view... and I'm using it on a 1.6 crop body... anxious to try it on a full frame and get the circular vingnetting!
