Canon USA has announced a revised release date for the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens, as well as other new lenses. It is now expected to be available from late July. Canon claim that it will be the world’s widest fisheye zoom lens, delivering an 180° diagonal angle of view on all EOS SLR cameras, from full-frame to APS-C, and providing full 180-degree circular fisheye images for full-frame EOS models. Suitable for still photographers and cinematographers, the lens will offer a unique perspective particularly when coupled with the highly popular full-frame EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera.
The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens will have estimated retail price of $1,399.
