The Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye Lens For Canon Mount  is an unique approach to creative photography. Images created by fisheye lenses are a circular, curved distorted view of reality.
It allows photographers to shoot creative images by taking advantage of the acute perspectives that are invisible to the human eye. This Sigma fisheye produces a circular image with a 180º angle of view within a black surrounding frame. A minimum focusing distance of 5.3 inches and a magnification ratio of 1to 4.6 allows the photographer to have fun with placement of subjects extremely near to the camera with distorted backgrounds. For photographers looking for a creative venue this Sigma fisheye is a good choice.

F3.5 maximum aperture
This lens is perfectly suited for low light conditions indoors or at dusk.
This circular fisheye lens has a minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm (5.3") and a maximum magnification of 1:4.6 making it particularly useful for close-up photography.
Excellent optical performance
Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass offer effective compensation of color aberration.
Reduction of flare and ghosting
Sigma's super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.
An ideal lens for scientific applications
Due to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces, this lens can be used for scientific applications such as solid angle measurements of cloud distribution over the sky, or vegetation distribution of the rain forest canopy.
