i have the canon 15mm fisheye picked it up used on ebay for $650 a couple of weeks ago. i have used the 8-15L my photo buddy has one and i was going to get one my self but, i couldn't part with the price of entry for the L zoom just to expensive for a specialized lens for occasional use so i went for the alternative, wonderful lens, sharp at f/2.8, fun to use and reasonably cheap, recommended
So....can you borrow your bud's Zoom and give us a side-by-side at 15mm f/4 with a 100% crop for comparison???!!!!???!!!!?
Actually ...I don't really need it...I am very happy with my Canon 15mm f/2.8..paid same price as you..bought it new just as the 8-15mm zoom hit the market. Its a cool lens, and perfect for "my" needs!!!!!
now that you have had the new lens caps for a while, what are the advantages? disadvantages?
it might be a good thread to start: take a photo of all your best equipment on the worst background with the worst camera you can find in the worst lighting possible. That's always the problem, isn't it? If you want to take a photo of all your good stuff then you've got nothing good to shoot it with... I'll do that when I get home.
well done me
Hi nda, what is the need behind upgrading, is it aesthetics, ergonomics or mechanics, eg like body, rear lens caps, where early ones are said to create more dust?
Just got a set for myself as well... all 82 mm caps.
Cost me about 8 dollars in total (including shipping which actually was free). They are the same as the ones the OP have, but without the Canon brand.....
8 dollars vs 100 dollars.... Not a hard judgement to make, and yes, they are every bit as good, and who the hell gives a F about the Canon brand on them.
Just take note, they will take some time to get to you, but if you're not in a massive hurry, then what's the rush? They are freaking lens caps.
can i have ur old caps for free (but i pay the shipping ) ?
Where did you get the Canon E-82 II lens cap? I've been looking for the 82mm variant for ages but no online shop had them in stock...
