Thoughts: Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens

Rented this lens over the weekend from Camera Rental Centre. I wouldn’t call this a review… since I’ve only had one weekend playing with this… I am neither a pro nor qualified to discuss lens performance, etc.

I definitely had fun with this. Shot close to 600 frames over 2 days. Focus on this thing is amazing – pretty much anything anywhere is in focus. Outtakes are the ones with an inadvertent limb in it… mine… most of the time wifey’s.

Glad I had a chance to play with this one. This is a great lens that I wouldn’t ordinarily have as part of my kit… for the kind of stuff I shoot. I mean, there’s only so many of the funny enlarged nose portraits I could have in my collection.

Overall I would say that this was a fantastic opportunity to get to play with something new without the costs associated with it, and to get out of my comfort zone.
