Just got it this morning. A quick shot @14mm on a 1D-IV. I was surprised at how close I was to the tree.

I completely agree with Dan Carr's comments about the lens cap. It's worthless. The slightest touch and it comes off. It is unacceptable for an L lens with a protruding front element. The designer should be stoned with scratched front lens elements.

Here's a shot at 8mm on the 1D-IV. The lens hood protrudes and can't be used at this focal length.

It looks similar to the 14L II's lens hood, so I can imagine what it's like - though the fisheye is probably a little worse since the hood is plastic and flexible as well (the 14L's hood is metal). You definitely need to be a little cautious of how you put the lens in your bag.

These were just a couple of quick snapshots I took yesterday when I got the lens. When I have more time this weekend I'll post some better shots.
