This is an extremely wide fisheye zoom lens with true "L Series" performance and build quality. The zoom is nice because it gives an appearance of changing the "strength" of the fisheye effect. At 8mm it will be more of a circular image, and zoomed out to 15mm it will be a curvy distorted image that fills the rectangular frame.
A fisheye lens can really add a new perspective to your work. To get the most impact, take photos from unusual perspectives to exaggerate the effect. For example, stand on a stool and look down at some people. Or, look up from the near the floor. Try getting very close to faces and let the lens grab plenty of context around the edges. You will appear to be taking a photo of one person, but you'll get everyone in the room.Then take it outside to get some fresh landscapes.
It features glass and coatings to control chromatic aberration and ghosting. The fluorine coating on the front glass helps to minimize fingerprints and smudges. This is a favorite for filmmakers and photographers who want to add special effects and variety to their work. This lens works perfectly on every Canon EOS camera made, including full-frame and cropped-frame.
