Canon EF 8-15mm f4L Fisheye USM sample images


The following images were taken with a Canon EF 8-15mm f4L Fisheye USM lens mounted on a variety of Canon DSLRs. To test the lens with different formats, I used an EOS 600D / T3i to represent APS-C bodies, an EOS 1D Mark IV to represent APS-H, and an EOS 5D and EOS 5D Mark II for full-frame results.

The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture and ISO are listed for each image. You can click each image to access either a higher resolution version, or the original file at flickr.

At the bottom of the page are two video clips filmed with the lens mounted on an EOS 600D / T3i and EOS 1D Mark IV. AGain these clips can be downloaded in their original format for evaluation.
