    Well, FE 15mm f2.8 is not bad as a lens. It is though quite an old lens with ancient optical design.

    What I find this lens troubling is its propensity to get purple Fringeing. Otherwise it is doing a good job as it is

    You can find the lens in my lens gallery here

    This lens is more worthwhile if you have a FF camera

    Other fish eye lenses to consider including

    Sigma 8mm f5.6

    Sigma 15mm f2.8 (2nd version instead of the first version) for cropped sensor canon camera

    I have the Tokina 10-17 Fish Eye and really like it!!!

    Nice and Fishie at 10mm, a bit less Fish at 17mm, but having the zoom is handy.

    The 15FE is a good lens, but if you're shooting on a crop sensor then you'll want to look at something like the Tokina fish zoom that others here have suggested.
