RIP Canon EF 15 f/2.8 Fisheye

RIP Canon EF 15 f/2.8 Fisheye

We’ll miss ya
The Canon EF 15 f/2.8 is officially discontinued at B&H.

I hear from lots of people that aren’t happy with the 8-15 f/4L fisheye. They wish Canon would update the full frame fisheye 2.8 prime.

How many of you wish Canon would do a fast L prime fisheye?

Sigma to the rescue?
I will say, the Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye is a great lens. It’s what we stock at Lens Rentals Canada. It can be had for $609 at B&H. I feel it’s as good as the Canon 15 f/2.8 was/is.

thanks Steve

5D Mark III & Lenses

5D Mark III & Lenses

Nothing Major
Another known source has spoken up and said a 5D Mark II replacement will be in quarter 1 in 2012. It was also said the line would include a “surprise”.

Lenses
Canon has apparently told some dealers in Europe that the 5D2/24-70 kit will no longer be available.

Signs of a replacement of the 24-70 is starting to show some more signs.

EF 8-15 f/4L
I have been playing with one for a day or two, trying to figure out how to effectively use a fisheye. I’d like a review up by the end of next week.

More soon, been sick.
