So I just bought a new Canon 8-15mm Fisheye lens. In looking at the lens out of the box and also reading the manual, it talks about the H - C setting on the lens along with the Limit switch on the lens. However, it only talks of these settings while on a APS-C crop camera.

Nowhere that I read does it say how these settings should be set on a full frame camera??

Any users have any useful information and or suggestions on what to put these settings on a FF camera?

Thanking you in advance.

Also, while I have your attention, why so much chromatic aberration? First snap out of the box stepping out on my back step. There is a significant amount of CA around the outside of the edge of the circle. Any suggestions?

This may answer the question about H and C http://www.the-digital-picture.com …-Fisheye-Lens-Review.aspx (external link)

It seems to be related to 1.3 and 1.6 crop cameras.
As far as the CA goes no idea

Probably not many people have experience with this lens, so I suggest you try re-posting re the CA on the more specialized Canon lens forum.

I rented this lens once; would actually like to purchase if I find a good used one at a good price, but hard to justify at full retail.

As you may have figured out the H and C can be ignored for full-frame use.

Regarding the CA at the edge of the circle; yes it does this. I just blacked that region out (draw a circular selection just inside that region, and color everything outside the circle black). You lose a tiny bit of coverage, but I thought the end result looked a lot better.
