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.

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).
