    I had both systems today so I had to compare:)

    Taken from the same spot

    Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM (16mm)// Canon 5DM2:

    Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye // Panasonic DMC-G1:

    Used LR4, the correct canon profile for the canon lens and "canon 15mm f/2.8" profile for samyang (it made just a small difference).

    The main thing about the fisheye is to hold it level to get straight lines.

    The images are not cropped (I had to straighten both a little bit)

    Thanks for that im also using a samyang for landscapes and using the canon 15mm profile to defish it. The samyang is quite impressively sharp!

    The samyang without lens profile

    I would not call the 15mm canon profile de-fishing, more like correction just like the canon 16-35 profile corrects the 16-35 (ok, it is a bit more:smile:)

    I think profiles like Sigma 8mm fisheye are great for De-fishing fishy images (lol) but so far I have not liked the loss of quality - I am still new to fisheye so I am just taking my first baby steps, take everything I say with grain of salt!

    The samyang without any correction:

    Nicely done... I think I prefer the 7.5mm shot.

    Interesting comparison. Thanks for that.
