iZugar 3.25mm f/2.5 Fisheye released
#11
Hmm, why not the Tokina 10-17 then?

Also consider any 8mm fisheye, they are dirt cheap, yet quality is excellent DOF is so big focusing is never an issue, I don't think manual aperture is a problem, you set the focus on the estimated distance by reading on the lens barrel set aperture and shoot, you will use viewfinder only for composing not focusing

That thought had crossed my mind, but the 8-15 is better made mechanically, has modern AF, is weather sealed, and I'm not sure of what kind of IQ to expect of the 10-17 outside the APS-C image circle (I'm using a 1D Mark 4 camera).

However, it looks like I'm gonna end up with the Tokina anyway, as it's 40% the price of the 8-15.

Hm, well, on APS-H you might have to look for a Tokina without hood already.

The EF 15 is not wide enough?

One fact in favour of the Tokina (and also the EF 15) is size: the 8-15 is quite bulky in comparison.

The EF 15mm is only about as wide on APS-C as a rectilinear 11mm, it seemed (I tried it a few times). The rest is, well, subject to debate and evaluation sometime down the road.
