New 8-15 mm vs Used 15 mm Fisheye
Dec 23, 2012

I'd like to shoot fisheye on a FF body and am considering either a used 15 mm (~$650 US) vs. the new 8-15 mm (~$1,300US).

I'm confident that I would never use the 8-15 mm at 8 mm; and the f/2.8 aperture on the used 15 mm might be nice (even though I probably would rarely shoot that wide).  Sometimes Canon refuses to repair older lenses, which I suppose could be a concern on the used lens.

Which is sharper at 15 mm?  Any benefit of one over the other besides price?

Thanks,
