What options do I have for a fisheye lens on a full frame sensor?

I know the obvious answer is the 8-15L but for a lens that I might use once or twice a year I don't want to drop that much money. I actually played with it at B&H and it was pretty cool (especially @ 8mm) but not sure how often I'll use it at 8mm.

I was told the old EF 15mm FE is discontinued now but I remember them being around $5-600, which seems a lot for a old lens. So are there any other third party lenses that are FE? Does samyang/rokinon make one? I wouldn't mind MF since I have a focus screen.

Sigma 15.... would be nice if there was a MF for much less. The sigma isn't cheap either.

Keep in mind the 8-15l is like getting 2 lens in one(180° circle and fullframe-the others are only 18X° one or the other).

The MF 3rd party ones are much cheaper at around $300.

Zenitar 16mm Fisheye. $225 at Amazon. Manual focus. There are reviews out there. It isn't the best, but it might do for once or twice a year.

If you don't mind the MF, Peleng 8mm is like a tank. You'll have a full circle 180.

Samyang/Rokinon/Bower 8mm works fine on FF. The newer version has a removable hood so that you don't have to crop as much in post. I have the old built in hood version so I have to crop the images, but they turn out just as good on the 6D as they did on my T2i. I'm selling mine actually only because I rarely use it...

Here's a couple example shots taken with the 6D

Yes, it's manual only, but at this FL it's a non-issue.

Go with the Sigma Fishie. It's fantastic.

Good that Rokinon realized the need for a removable petal.
Yes their fisheye prime lenses are very high quality. Probably the best you can get for money.

I have the Rokinon 8mm HD with the removable hood.

I've used it on my friends 5D3 with pretty good results. Quite impressive really. $300 new btw

I pondered this for a long time. Surprisingly, there is not an easy answer. I saved the money for the Sigma 15mm, which is pretty awesome. I would have settled for sorta awesome for $300, but couldn't find it. Maybe the Zenitar, but I read so many bad reviews.

If you try the Rokinon, let us know how you like it.

I have the older, nondetachable petal 8mm Rokinon and have nothing bad to say about it.
It is a wonderful lens. I have to crop the periphery on FF but then know people who permanently cropped the shade! On Cropped format body, 100 percent perfect lens.

The Samyang 14mm is reeeeaally wide and works on full frame without the annoying black circle, although it lacks the 'fishy' barrel distortion
