Precautions for Shooting with a Fisheye Lens
•If dirt or dust adheres to the surface of the front lens element, it can easily appear in images due
to the lens’s short focal length. In order to avoid this, please remove dirt or dust from the surface of
the front lens element by using a commercially available air dust blower.
•Since this lens has an extremely wide angle of view, light from bright light sources, such as the
sun, can easily enter the image area. Please do not look at bright light...

“C” and “H” Markings
Adjacent to the zoom ring, the “C” and “H”
markings serve as guides to indicate the wide-
angle zoom position where focus is set at infinity
at which photos can be created without
vignetting when using EOS digital cameras
installed with APS-C or APS-H image sensors.
The “C”/”H” indicator on the zoom ring is aligned
with either the “C” or “H” marking.
Zoom Limiter
The zoom limiter function allows for wide-angle
photos to be created when focus is set at infinity

• Circular FisheyeThe circular fisheye effect refers to the 180 degree circular angle of view which appears within the area of the image sensor. When the
focusing distance of this particular lens is set to infinity, the circular fisheye effect is achieved by setting the focal length (wide end) to
8mm and using a camera equipped with a full frame image sensor.
• Diagonal FisheyeThe diagonal fisheye effect refers to a 180 degree diagonal angle of view which corresponds with the size of the sensor....

Distance index
To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus

aligned with the distance indicator on the
distance scale.
For accurate manual focusing on subjects at
infinity distance, turn the focus ring while looking
through the viewfinder or checking the camera’s
