    Canon 2535A007AA reviews

    Fisheye EF 15mm f/2.8 Autofocus Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 259.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from what a cool little lens!!!! I purchased this lens to use with my Canon Mark II exclusively for the video function my camera offers. I shoot a lot of snowboarding/skateboarding stuff and it's such a great lens for it. You can get extremely close to your subject and shoot without even looking through the viewfinder cause it's so wide. As long as you like the effect of the fisheye I don't see a downside to this lens. It's great in all conditions, even in low light. It's shoots really nice stills as well but I find that people that have this lens tend to over use it. The fisheye effect is really cool as long as all the stuff you shoot is not based around it. I would recommend this lens for sure.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have lens for your camera bag! I use it for landscapes and shooting in tight spaces. Photographing pets can be fun. The convex distortion is purposful, and effective for exaggerating objects in the center. This small lens is tons of fun and I recommend it for those looking to explore their creative side. It's 180 degree view might include your feet, so be careful. Sharpness is very good throughout at f2.8, but gets better stopped down. Build quality is decent, but the focusing ring feels loose and lower in quality. It comes with a metal lens cap that slips over the convex glass and built-in hood. It has a tendency to slip off, so be careful. A protective filter will not fit, due to the convex glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This lens is excellent. I started using a friend's fisheye a few years ago, and had to have one of my own. It is great for panoramic images, and some creative close ups as well. It has AF/MF settings which the knock-off brands dont. The AF is really quick and produces crisp, clear images. I recommend this lens to anyone wanting a great addition to their exisiting digital SLR lenses. I cant think of any cons if you know how to use this kind of lens, other than the fact that the lens cover just slips on and does not lock into place because of the built in lens hood. Very minor......buy this lens and have fun with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Glass for Special Projects! So, first let me say that what I don't like about the glass is the dam lens hood. It falls off so easily and that my friend can lead to possible scratch on the lens. However, exepct for the above, I love this lens. I mostly use it for landscape and for taking pics of buildings in NYC. The distortion is there, this can give a great effect if you are looking for it or you can look through your viewfinder and aim above the horizon for no distortion. Very fast at 2.8. Very Sharp. Great lens. Very solid piece of glass. I have a lot of fun with it. I highly recommend it only if you intend to use it for special projects. It is not an everyday lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant! I think this is the only fish eye that Canon makes, although I could be wrong. It gives brilliantly clear shots with all of the expected distortion. I use it all of the time just to mix up some of my regular shots, and I'm quite often surprised at the interesting oddities that arrive. It's a playful lens, and you have to treat it that way. But, you also have to treat it with kid gloves as there's no lens shield that can fit it. :( There is a nice metal lens cover that comes with it, but I'm talking about the standard whatever-mm UV lens cover that we all use to protect the lens itself during shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUN Lens! My 24mm went down and out for repairs and I needed a wide angle so I figured Go all the way. This lens is crazy sharp. It is relatively easy to avoid distorted look but also very easy to exaggerate it too. The focus is noisy, but I kind of dig the zzzzzzizt sound it gives off. The focus is very accurate, maybe a little slow but not an issue. It is very light and compact compare to my 24mm 1.4L. It isn't quite L lens build quality but it is definitely a lot more rigid than my 50mm 1.4. Although the front most element is somewhat exposed and pretty vulnerable so I being really careful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Specialized Product The unique distortion of a fisheye lens is only useful for certain situations. It works well if you have an ornamental subject that you want to center in your photo, preferably something with a symmetrical or circular shape. It's also good for bending skyscrapers. One thing that's amazing is how close you have to get to your subject. Since this is a diagonal lens, it's a little more versatile than it would be if it were circular. It's extremely sharp. In order to get its intended effect, you need to use a full frame camera body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than meets the (FISH)eye! May be one of the most misunderstood lenses in terms of use. By the name alone some new comer the this type of optics want to see the door knob/carnival effect. That is not the case with this lens. I have used this lens with both a Canon 5D and the new Xsi. The 5D having a full frame 35mm sensor giving me the true 15mm optically altered rounding effect known as fisheye(moderately so) and with the Xsi that has a 1.6X multiplier(smaller sensor) which give a subtler barreling effect. That is a 24mm optically alterd by the front element. Much different than a standard 15 or 24mm lens. In any case the lens works best when the vantage point is from high above or from low to the ground. Better yet close to your subject. In my opinion for the money it is the best Fisheye for the canon EOS system. Not easy to clean! be careful!
