Hi All
I am trying to find a wide angle lens that works well behind the Ikelite 8 dome
I was very interested in the Sigma 15mm until I found information on the vignette issue.
The canon 8-15 is also on my list but cant find any info if it vignettes at 15mm? I would just use it at 15mm as I am not really interested in the circular effect. I think I would prefer a fish eye as I would prefer the corner sharpness offered by that style of lens. I have emailed Ikelite and just waiting on a response.
Thanks Chris

Happy New Year!


Have you considered the Tokina 10-17 fisheye?  It has worked fine for me with a Zen 100 mm dome.
