Canon’s latest announcements also include their new EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye lens which includes the world first ability to function as both a circular fisheye and full-frame fisheye for their full-frame SLR/DSLR camera range.
Unfortunately you won’t be able to get your hands on this baby for at least a few more months, as it’s scheduled for January 2011.
The EF8-15mm f/4L fisheye lens is the world’s first fisheye zoom lens that functions as a circular fisheye and full frame fisheye for full-frame sensor, interchangeable lens SLR/DSLR cameras. It is perfect for high-end enthusiast and professional photographers wanting to produce unique and creative effects.
The lens replaces the EF15mm f/2.8 fisheye lens and features a newly-designed two-group zoom optical system with a zoom range of 8-15mm. The short minimum focusing distance of 15 cm gives a new meaning to close-up shots.
The optimised lens element positioning and lens coatings also minimise ghosting and flare prone to occur with digital SLR cameras.
