yeah, finally a zoom full frame to full circle fisheye for 16:9 video at the wide end. The 8mm are to big for video.

Unfortunately it's not full-frame but designed for APS-C sensor. Although it'd presumably mount on FF bodies, how well it'd work on them is uncertain.

It functions as an edge-to-edge FF circular fisheye somewhere in the middle of the zoom range. At 11mm it appears to fill the FF frame horizontally but not diagonally.

could be an interesting lens for the EOS M system to have a 360 pano kit.
I'm already using a M43 Samyang Fisheye with EF-M mount conversion for that purpose, but the lens is not good when it comes to flares (which outdoors is always the case with 360 panos).
