Additional information on Older FD Fisheye lenses


Canon Lens Fisheye 7.5mm f/5.6 S.S.C.

This is the older Fish-eye 7.5mm fl5.6 S.S.C. with chrome mount ring. Like all fisheye lenses, it delivers a different perspective effect than regular wide-angle lenses. The Fish-Eye FD 15mm f/2.8 S.S.C. is a lens for general photography with an angle of view of 180°. Additionally, the TS 35mm f/2.8 S.S.C. also has a special feature for controlling perspective and depth-of-field.

All the FD fisheye andwide-angle lenses allow the entire field-of-view to be seen through the viewfinder without having to fix the mirror up because the FD wideangle lenses are of the reversed telephoto type.

NOTE:- Info on the NEWER autofocus version

This is an equidistant projection type fish-eye lens which expands the use of the FD series of lenses. A 180° angle-of-view is taken in a 23mm diameter circle in the 24mm x 35mm picture frame. With its 11-element, 8 groups construction, it has six built-in filters. Its size is the same as that of standard lenses but a larger lens barrel.

Because of its optical design, it is ideal for photographing astronomical and azimuth phenomena. When used in ordinary photography, it is particularly suitable in achieving special effects. The field-of-view is visible through the viewfinder without fixing the mirror up.

Canon Lens Fish-eye FD 15mm f/2.8 S.S.C.

This is a fish-eye lens for general photography developed to follow the 7.5mm lens. It carried the FD designation to enable full aperture metering and AE operations on a suitably equipped Canon bodies and has an extremely high quality of performance. It covers a diagonal angle of 180°.

Because of its retrofocus design, the mirror does not have to be set up. From the point-of-view regarding light metering as well as photography in general, it operates as well as a standard lens.

Its f/2.8 brightness ranks high above the rest, and it has full compensation of every aberration in the 180 degree picture area. Special effort was made to avoid the aberration of astigmatism, and it has a sharp definition up to the corner areas.

Furthermore, in order to solve the problem of ghost and flare which tend to occur with this type of lens, it is multicoated Canon's Super Spectra Coating.
