    Many have been waiting for nearly a year for this lens to ship and are impatient to get their hands on some sample shots at last. If you could make an 8mm sample 360x180 panorama set available for download somewhere, it would be really appreciated.

    Sven, Great! As Riefa says, use a free hosting site such as http://www.zshare.net (no registration needed) or one of the others suggested. Preferably pack the files together in a zip ar rar archive. Or you can email them - the address is on my web page at http://www.johnhpanos.com/ .

    Sven kindly emailed me the individual Canon 8-15mm fisheye RAW images (8mm on 5DII - 4 around from a pole) with permission to share them. I've uploaded a zip archive (96MB) at http://www.zshare.net/download/932872116dda8631/ .

    I got mine today. It is this kind of lens that you start loving from the first moment you hold it in your hands. Btw, I wouldn't care about a zoom blocker on the R1.

    Hi John,

    Thx a lot to you and to Sven to share this information. I know a lot of people are waiting for nearly a year for this infos. Though I am a Nikonian, I am interested as well.

    If there is somebody in NL who has this lens in his hands, I'd like to ask him to contact me to work out the settings for NN. May be we can meet an afternoon to work it out for the NN Panohead System from R1/R10 to M1. I feel there are a lot of Canon Friends having been waiting for this lens a long time. They want to go out shooting as quick as possible. "With a good database of settings".

    Thx in advance,
    Heinz

    Just send an IM.

    The Pictures are taken without any NN Rig on an Ambient Pole (http://www.ambient.de/produkte/tonan...tandard_e.html) in 6 meters. I have only adjust a little bit the Counterweight of the Camera. I think the best Solution on Pole with 8mm are 3 Shots, the first in the Sun then you have no Flares in the 2 others.

    Well, you know the old photographer's saying, "a lens in the hand is worth 2 behind the glass counter in the store..." OK so it doesn't scan very well... ;-)

    I got my 8-15mm lens a few days ago, right now it's on my pole pano head using the setting hole for the Canon 16mm lens.

    .
    I'm already planning on shaving off a little of the lens hood for shooting @ 13mm without having to remove it.
    On this photo @ 13mm you can see the edges of the lens hood, that's what getting removed.
    http://www.indiavrtours.com/pic/8-15mm2.jpg
    .

    Here's a test shot, 4 shots @ 12mm, f/8, ISO100 looking into the sun.
    Sharpened and adjusted with Photoshop.
    Original size was 11024x5512
    http://www.indiavrtours.com/vrphotos/8-15.html
    The stitching was done fast a sloppy as it's just a test.
    .

    4 shots @ 13mm, f/5.6, ISO400, 1/125
    This has heavy foliage in it which made for a large 7.43 file size.
    At 13mm there was a 3 foot hole top and bottom that I patched, when using a
    large pole I often get stitching errors with trees overhead and this one is
    fairly bad. Sharpened and adjusted with Photoshop.

    .

    Shot @ 13mm, f/5.6, ISO400, 1/90s file size 7.56MB.
    This was done 4 around on a pole and 1 up handheld.
    Sharpened and adjusted with Photoshop.
