Here is the image as shot and imported. It actually took 6 degrees to correct for level, obviously one too many rum punches!

as this is a 180° 15mm fisheye before SW rectilinear correction, if you want "better" results straight out of a camera a 9-24mm or even an 8-16mm rectilinear lens with "just" 135° or 139° could be more useful than the current 11-24mm with "only" 126° ;)

It did not have rectilinear correction.

I'll accept.

Here is shot of the entrance to a university. The building is very close to the entrance gates. This first shot was taken at 26mm, so you could imagine what it would look like at 50mm.

The building would totally overwhelm the arch.

Instead, I wanted the arch to frame the building, so I employed a Laowa 9mm 5.6 lens on a Sony a7rIII fullframe camera.

View attachment 196613 Definitely some distortion present, but I wouldn't call it "ridiculous projection".

Here is the image after a little cleanup and cropping that I ended up using.

So for me, a 9mm has a place in my kit especially if Canon can produce one with much better edge sharpness.
Very nice!
