Canon did a great job with this L series lens.
R. Blasi
What this means is this lens is only good for taking distorted ultra wide angle shots and can't be used as a primary lens.

This is a really fun lens and does exactly what it says it will do.

very beautiful lens and do recommend for plenty of images but almost never at the 8mm length for people or animals... If, you shoot down on someone you may be able to make a fatter person smaller... But, mostly no persons at 8mm.
The 15 mm is outstanding for "wall to wall" images and well worth the lens for that 15mm.
I uploaded a singel 8mm image that shows this view on a full frame camera (5D Mark III) and it is a good lens at that length for tight nature shoots... or...
Be very careful with this lens once you take hood off... as you can get too close to subject and literally hit subject using the 8mm length (which can be an expensive lesson)... remember, to lean forward to keep your feet out of images when using this lens and finally, remember the view is all the way around the same on a full frame camera... Distortion is minimal and if you keep straight lines out of your images it will not show (find the sweet spot on distance)...
The last moment I thought of a great way to show you this lens in MOVIE MODE -- LOL -- so, much easier for all to see the range of this lens... I found a location full of objects which will allow for easy "figuring out" what the distortion is on this lens and you might see as a buyer... Remember, crop sensors will NOT get the full circle at 8mm...
Love you,
kai
PS I hope this video and review was helpful and remember you can pause video at anytime to see what a still image would look like -- so, here is the review with full range -
aslo do not forget the "limit setting" which stops lens from going below 10 degrees.

What a great joy to own and use this lens every day!

I almost ordered this lens last year when I saw it first listed on B&W website for pre-ordering. But I was hesitant at that time, wondering how useful this specialty novelty lens can be on daily shooting. After some time-consuming research, I finally went for it... It was in a pizzeria store in Las Vegas while I was waiting for my pizza that I first opened the Amazon package containing my brand new copy of the lens... Wow! As soon as I put it on my camera (5D3) and started to shoot with it, I was awed! I tried to shoot nearly everything and everybody with it, a lot of photos and videos. And it stayed on my camera for the rest of my Las Vegas trip (2+ days).

Here, I'm not writing a full review or anything close. I just want to point out a few things about the lens (or my copy of the lens).

== On my 7D ==

It won't give me a full circle image, not even something close. Instead, it becomes a super wide zoom lens with fisheye distortion. To me, the distortion is not more annoying than that from a regular super wide lens, and is typically as acceptable (or similarly unacceptable in the case I don't like the wide angle distortion).

== On my 5D ==

It offers a full circle image at 8mm, and a very interesting (somewhat bizarre) image at 15mm. I have almost only used this lens on my 5D, and typically at 15mm only. On my 5D, the lens is

1) super sharp: I think it's sharper than my 16-35mm/f2.8L, 24-105mm/f4L, and 70-200mm/f2.8L. And it looks like even sharper than my 24mm/f1.4L II.

2) it focuses super fast: nearly every time, instantly. Even in a dark environment, as soon as it can see a bit light, it can focus lock on it.

I love fisheye photography, and this lens provides limitless creative potential, I did not realize it until I actually used it. I saved $$ and thought about it for a few months, then pulled the trigger. I'm glad I did, the lens produces great pictures, very sharp. Great built, weather sealed, solid and smooth feel of the focus and zoom rings. The lens is actually smaller than it looks on the website, not heavy, looks and feels great, but best of all, it produces some really cool shots! Especially using a full frame camera, I use a 5Dmk3 and the shots I get in low light outside are just stunning.

Why 5 stars? Though $1400 is not cheap for this lens, I think it is good value being that this is the only zoom fisheye available, going from full circular to extra-wide. I tried the Ronikon, but in reality, no other fisheye lens can come close to competing to this bad dog. It really is that good. I think it is worth it.

I am updating this review again after having it for a few years and being around the world with it. Along with sample images..

This is in response to bruce's request for a lens suggestion. I am going to add some of my experience shooting with the Canon 8-15mm F4L lens on multiple cameras (full frame, apc, and 4/3).

I bought the Canon 8-15mm F4 after testing many lenses. The 8-15 lens is the most amazing lens. It is optically excellent and it is also very practical If you want to use it for multiple situations like I do.
HAND HELD 360 PANOS
After a little bit of practice, you can shoot hand held 360x180 panos and the 8mm mode of the 8-15mm makes it easy. On full frame, normally 3-4x shot on one row tilted up slightly + one pointing down for the floor (nadir). Zenith not needed. I use my foot as the nodal pivot point. I will plan out my shots based on the shape of the room and the people in it so i can avoid having stitching lines cross major features like people or art. I use PT GUI Pro's masking feature to do it.
This was hand held in NASA's dark room. (5DMK3 With 8-15@8MM)

Handheld Trick photo as little planet: (5DMK3 With 8-15@8MM)
[...]
original 360 pano (5DMK3 With 8-15@8MM)
[...]
If you use a APC camera it helps to shoot portrait mode.

When i shoot hand-held 360s at night, i will go with wide aperture and high iso to prevent shake. Since the stitched images are bigger than i need them to be, reducing the size of the pano has the nice side effect of reducing the noise of the image.

TRIPOD 360 PANOS:
You can reduce the number of shots and get better faster stitching and better accuracy by using a pano head + tripod. This was taken with a tripod + nodal ninja pano head.
