    Hello All!

    So I was looking to get the Canon 15mm fisheye lens for my canon rebel xs/1000d. I heard the lens needs a full frame like the 5D or above....will this lens work with my rebel xs/1000D? if so will i get the full effect or what?

    thanks for ur help!!!:thumbup:

    I think that lens is made for full frames. U will get the affect but i think it will cut off the image so what you see in the viewfinder wont come out on the actual image. Anyone, step in and correct me if im wrong here. I think the tokina fisheyes have great reviews and are made for crop sensors. again if im wrong let me know ok

    You camera works on any EF lens on the market. Since the 15mm fisheye lens from Canon is a EF lens, it will work with your camera.

    The draw back when using the lens with a cropped body, you are not able to take advantage the full potential of the lens since the field of view is reduced.

    Here is the review of the lens with a Canon rebel camera.

    ok. so instead of a 180 degree view I get like 140 degrees? Does anyone have a sample photo taken with a 1000D w/ canon 15mm fish.

    thanks!

    Go To Flickr And Look For A Canon 15mm FishEye Group. That Will Be Lots Quicker Than Waiting For Someone To see This Thread, That Also Happens To Have A 1000D AND a 15mm FishEye.

    In Fact, You Don't Need An Image Made With A 1000D, You Just Need A Photo Made By Any Canon Camera That Has A APS-C Size Image Sensor Behind A Canon 15mm FishEye Lens.

    The review from the above link contains samples (taken with a rebel xt camera).

    I have a broken 5D MKII and a 30D. The 15mm is a great lens, but you're not going to get as much distortion as with using an full frame camera. It'll almost be like you're using a really wide lens with barrel distortion.

    Why? The 50D has the same crop factor as your rebel.
