Sigma 8mm (f/3.5) fish eye-lens for Canon – A first look

Sigma 8 mm (f/3.5) Fish Eye lens for Canon

Recently I got the chance to try out this Sigma fish eye from Canon as it’s a part of the equipment I will be using in my Creative Director-work. Since I’m a Nikon shooter myself, and therefore doesn’t have any Canon-bodies to fit the lens on, I was lent a Canon ESO 1100D from All Foto in Kristianstad. This means that I’m shooting a lens made for a full frame sensor, on a crop sensor, thus the circle is cut of in the edges.

Today I aim to present some first pictures that I took during my first round with this lens. In a couple of week, once I’ve used the lens more and properly evaluated it, I will be back with a full review. There’s something I can say already, and that is that this wide of a lens ain’t for everybody – so let’s see if it’s something for me!

  • Review: 23 year old Canon-lens • AREKU :

    […] Growing up, my mother documented much of my early life with a Canon EOS 1000F paired with a 35-80 mm 1:4-5.6. I probably have this amazing dedication from her part to blame for my interest in photography. A couple of years ago however, this trusty camera of her began acting up with not focusing correctly, so she switched to an analogue compact camera out of convenience, that have also served her well. Both she and I had our suspicions that the problem with the Canon might be the lens, and not the body, but we didn’t have any other lenses, and no other Canon bodies in the house to try our suspicions, as I am a Nikon shooter myself (sorry mom).  That is, until last week when I was lent a Canon EOS 1100D to use with The Company’s (the ones who signs my payroll that is) Sigma fish-eye lens (click here to see my first photos with it!)
