    I have been asked before how wide the 15mm fisheye is compared to the 16-35 but never had any good tests to show it. I had similar shots taken from the same place but never done on a tripod from the exact same place. I also wanted to see the difference between full frame and 1.3x

    Heres the pictures. All taken from the exact same place at the same ISO, shutter speed, and aperture.

    First, heres a 15mm fisheye compared to a 16-35 @ 16mm.

    Now, heres the comparison of the 15mm on a FF-vs-1.3x body and the 16-35 on a FF-vs-1.3x body

    15mm 1D

    15mm 5D

    Hopefully this helps to visualize the difference for anyone wondering.

    hm...the FOV is quite a difference. and you can see the vignetting of the lens in the 5d 16mm picture.

    I also see some vignetting in the 15mm lens on the 5D as well. Granted, not as much but it's there. The 15 also has a bit of barrel distortion. The 16 is much better in this regard.

    Just curious. Do you recall what the aperture setting/focus distance was on your shots? They have great dof throughout the shot.

    They were all f/2.8
    Focus distance was maybe 30 feet? However far it is to that door. I just AF'ed and took the picture. WA lenses dont take much to get past the hyperfocal and get pretty much everything in focus.

    That's what I thought until I tried focusing my 16-35 at 5' or 6' and found that my dof was still pretty limited.
