EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM

EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM

This is the world's first* fisheye lens realizing full-fledged fisheye effect while supporting three different camera image sensors (full-size CMOS sensor for real circular fisheye and diagonal fisheye effects, and APS-C/H sensors for diagonal fisheye effect). High resolution and contrast are achieved, thanks to the use of a UD optical element and a high-precision aspherical lens element. Furthermore, incorporation of SWC helps reduce flare and ghosting.

* Among interchangeable SLR lenses.

  • Aspherical lens
  • UD lens
  • SWC
  • Fluorine coating
