    How much do you want (or rather, are you prepared) to spend on it?
    Sigma do a couple of pretty good fish-eyes, and they're a lot cheaper than the Canon.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    I plan on getting the canon 15mm f/2.8
    no brainer for me. the 8-15 would be great, but i can't justify double the price tag.
    plus it's one stop faster, bonus!

    the 15mm f/2.8 is nice. For $550-600 second hand it is pretty good, very sharp at 2.8 in the centre. I am not sure I could justify the pricetag of the L for such a specfic lens
    1DIII, 5DII, 15mm fish, 24mm ts-e, 35L,135L,200L,400L,mpe-65mm

    Which one?
     8mm F/3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye
     15mm F/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye
    If the former then I agree, there’s not much else going; if the latter, then I would rather buy a new EF15F/2.8, before the market dries up.

    I suggest you should try both of them shooting into the light - that's where I noticed the difference: and where the Canon shines, IMO.

    wouldn't get that 8-15mm for your ff unless you want some nice back edges around your photo when you're shooting zoomed out.
    I think it's better on a crop.
    Canon 5D MKII, 17-40mm f/4L, 24-105mm f/4L, 17mm TS-E f/4L, 24mm f/1.4L II, 50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.2L
    135mm f/2L.
    Alien bee lights, Gitzo tripods, Adobe CS5

    I find the single most valuable tool on my computer is my recycle bin.

    Bought A Sigma 15mm EX DG Fisheye online for $658, The lens is super sharp amd the auto focus is fast and smooth, If you are looking for an extra wide angle lens that has just a nice gentle fisheye effect, I do not think you could go far past this one. Very highly recommended.
