- Canon EF 8-15mm F/4L Fisheye Camera Lens
The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye Lens is an L-type fisheye zoom lens that goes further by being the world’s first real fisheye zoom lens that functions as a circular fisheye and full-frame fisheye for full size, and as a full-frame fisheye for APS-C/H sizes. Featuring UD glass for diminishing chromatic aberration, a subwavelength coating is present for reduced ghosting, a fluorine coating that keeps smears, fingerprints and soiling to a minimum. The lens has full-time manual focus for immediate switching from AF to Manual operation, and is constructed to the standards of the astounding Canon L-series of lenses. With an aperture of f/4.0 and focal length of 15mm, focusing to a particular object can be possible in low light and zooming will be not of a problem. The EF 8-15mm f/4L USM is the world's widest fisheye zoom lens that delivers 180° diagonal angle of view images for all EOS SLR cameras. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
Circular or full frame Fisheye zoom lens
There’s no need to buy two specialist lenses when the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM offers, either full frame or circular fisheye images when used with cameras with a 24x36mm (full frame) sensor. For photographers shooting with DSLR’s with a smaller sensor, full frame fisheye images are possible. With a 180 diagonal field of view, capturing the whole scene in a single image has never been easier.
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are highly resistant to dust and moisture.
Fast, quiet auto focus
A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and optimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF mode.
Enhanced image quality with SWC coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented Subwavelength structure coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. By eliminating the cause, the coating reduces reflections and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.
Easier lens cleaning
The foremost and rearmost lens surfaces are treated with a Fluorine Coating which enables the easier cleaning of the lens surface compared to existing coatings.
