I'm getting my first set-up and am going to go for Canon but i really need a full time fisheye and Nikon has a 10.5mm DX Fisheye f2.5 so why hasn't Canon seen that this is needed and made one! Do you think Canon has one in the works?

Is there any way i can contact Canon and ask or is that something that they would never tell the public until it was released? Is there anyone i can tell in Canon that this is a pretty important lense to make?

Surf, Skate and Snowboarding photographers need this for digital!

EF-S 10 or 11mm Fisheye f2.8 PLEASE! please! PLEASE!!!

yes but that becomes more like a 23mm on a 1.6x crop factor camera such as the 20D or 300D. A 10 or 11mm becomes like a 15mm f2.8 on these cameras

p.s. i meant nikon fisheye f2.8 not f2.5 sorry

The 10-22 zoom is a great wide-angle lens, but it is rectilinear, not fisheye.

I know Tom, but why have part of the scene black when you don't have to...

You're thinking of the circular fisheye - The Canon 15 mm fisheye is not such a lens, and provides a fisheye image on full-frame, but no black circle. Same for the Sigma 15. I think it's the Sigma 8 mm fisheye that gives the round black framing - truly a 180-degree view in all directions, as opposed to the two 15's that give 180 degrees of coverage only at the corners.

I may be wrong, but I was thinking that the original poster wanted such a lens.

Here's a couple of examples of the 15 mm fisheye on a 1.3X 1D2 camera. Of course, on full-frame, the effect is even more dramatic.

What about the Sigma 8mm circular fisheye?

About the fishiest lens I've seen for a 1.6x sensor. :)

You're probably a very small minority that think that fisheye lenses are important. To me it's a gimmick lens not for real photography.

I bet Canon knows exactly how many 15mm fishes they sell....
and this have a pretty good grasp of how an EF-S model would sell, that is only useable on a small percentage of Canon's SLR models,..

Hey, thanks for the replys - true that they may not sell a whole heap but they have isolated the surf, skate and snowboarding photographers who truely use this lens very often. These photographers cannot necessarily afford a full frame digital and so have continued to use film. This lens may be a gimmick for some types of photography but it is very important for surf photography... pretty much every pro surf photographer has one as a main lens.

The results are outstanding as being in a barrel of water if you frame properly it doesn't distort the rider but accentuates the water throwing out without looking really unnatural. this can be the result:

(ps im not the photographer)
and yes i was talking about the 180' diagonal 15mm equivolent, not a circular.

Thanks again

Daniel.
