This recent achievement represents the second award for the Canon fisheye lens, following its designation as ‘Best Professional DSLR Lens in 2012’ by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) in Europe.

Organized by the Camera Journal Press Club, the Camera Grand Prix is Japan’s most coveted camera and lens product awards. Among the four award categories, the 29th Camera Grand Prix recognized Canon’s EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM, presenting it with the ‘Lens of the Year Award’ for its previous launch of lens products in the markets of Japan.

Debuted in March 1987 as a new series of AF SLR cameras, the Canon EOS camera system integrated the world’s first electronic mount system, with overall electronic control all through the entire camera system. Over 50 M EOS cameras and 70 M EF lenses have been developed since then. Canon’s current EF lens series includes over 65 models, providing an extensive range of creative options to benefit all level photographers ranging from beginners to professionals.

Canon’s EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens, having numerous innovative imaging potentials provides both 180-degree diagonal viewing angle and 180-degree circular fisheye in a single zoom lens. The lens’ 8-15mm focal length range, and the integration of UD ultra-low dispersion-glass and high-precision glass-mould aspherical elements for reducing aberrations, that resulted in high-image-quality performance, recognized it for 2012 Camera Grand Prix award. In addition, the lens’ compact and portable design, Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) with minimal low ghosting and flare, and a dust-and moisture-proof structure that can withstand harsh weather conditions, took it to winning the award.
