Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye

ef15mmf_28_1_
Review Date: Jul 3, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $550.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, great IQ, fun to use with really interesting possibilities!
Cons:
Huge front element with no screw on filter is a bit frightening...

I've had this lens for about a year now, been using it on both my rebel XT and an old canon film SLR. On the XT (1.6x crop factor), the fisheye effect is barely noticeable, and its served as a great workhorse wide angle lens. Quality really is impressive for the price. On FF, the lens is downright dizzying. The results can be a bit gimmicky, but when used tastefully can produce some really incredible images.

Some photos with my rebel xt:

One year later and I'm still very happy I made the purchase!
