    That image was made with a full frame fisheye lens. The border was added by the photographer, not the lens.

    I'm impressed that there's no vignetting at the corners.
    My 24-70mm lens shows vignetting at the 24mm end on my 5D although I'm not sure if the polarizer is the cause or the lens.

    If you are getting vggnetting with a 24 mm lens you are doing something wrong. You either have the wrong lens hood on or something is bad with your filter. Vignetting especislly with a digital should not start until extreme wide angle lenses if at all. Oh yeah and I agree that picture was taken with a fish-eye lens at least 17mm fo a 35mm camera if not lower.

    I wouldn't be sure your example was done with a fisheye. I use a 10.5 lens on my nikon and don't get any cut off. If I can find an example, I'll post it later.

    I have both a circular and full frame Sigma fisheyes. The circular is 8mm for Canon EF mount and full 14mm Canon FD. Personally the 14mm is my favorite of the two but I do not ether a lot. i have sample of the 8mm use the link in my signature

    It is certainly a fisheye. Quote from an interview with Friedman: "And all I had to know in 1975 was what a fisheye lens was because that's what I wanted to use. That was the cool thing for skateboarding."


    Full frame fisheye. I'd guess 15mm or so.

    Maybe it's an Australian expression. I mean the darkening of the edges of the image that can be caused by a lens hood not being wide enough to cover the angle of the lens. I have a cheap fisheye which I have used on my Hasselblad and it gives me "cut off" or it gives me a round image on the film and cuts of drastically on the edges. Evidently the initial shot posted was on a fisheye, my mistake. I assumed it could have been a 10.5mm lens based on the images below.

    Ah. In the U.S. we use "vignette," the French word. I couldn't tell you why. Putting a filter or a lens hood on a fisheye wouldn't work. That's for sure. They have a tiny little bit of hood built in but adding to it would certainly cause cut off. Here's an architectural shot I made recently with my 10.5
