I would go for the Canon EF 15mm 2.8 given the price list. Assuming you are taking the 5DIII.

On a crop body, I personally like the Tokina 10-17mm and owned it for several years. It's very versatile and goes from the very fishy look at 10mm, to more of a super wide at 17mm that's not tremendously distorted. It looks like they only carry the version with the built-in hood, which is recommended for crop bodies only (it'll work on a FF camera, but you'll see the hood in your frame if you shoot wider than 12mm or so).

I just bought a new Canon 8-15 Fisheye. Never had shot with a fisheye before. it's interesting. I'll be using it on an upcoming trip to Australia and New Zealand.

You might look into one of these.

The Rokinon 12mm f/2.8 FE is an excellent lens. It is manual focus. If you are focusing a 12mm FE lens, you are using it improperly.

It wasn't on the list or I would have suggested this.

The EF 8-15 is interesting, but considering the OP had no idea which lens to choose and is renting for a vacation, why pay more and complicate matters?

Canon and Sigma 15mm are standard fish-eye's for FF (op has a 5DIII)and are optically similar , and the Canon is a bit cheaper to rent.

Another vote for the Rok 12/2.8. it's a great little lens and I would just buy it. It's pretty cheap.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Lol I have this lens. You basically set it to infinity and everything over 1 meter is in focus, even wide open.
