Anyone that gets this lens will notice upon removing the lens cap (Canon carefully packaged the lens with fabric to protect the front element) You will find with the design that when you go to put the lens cap back on it will not fix securely.
To solve the problem buy some velcro tape and use the soft side and cut two 1cm squares and stick them to the inside of the lens cap. This will make the lens cap a snug fit when you put lens cap back on. (Problem Solved but Canon should check their quality control for the amount of money people spend to get this lens)

The Canon 8-15mm F4 L is a unique lens for the unbelievable angle of view and crazy distortion it produces.. It is perfect for being creative and a must for photographers that want to shoot spherical panoramics. The reason why it is so successful for panoramics is that you reduce the amount of photographs you will need to take. The less photographs taken between shots for example on a windy day can determine if the sky and clouds will match up. On the 15mm index you can take 8 photographs in a 360 degree turn which comes in very handy.

Overall it can be a fun lens when taking photo's of friends and make their face look funny.

Price wise it is not cheap.
