    Default Samyang 8mm Fisheye F3.5

    Hi all,

    as i am going to buy the above lense tomorrow and apart from canon lenses, i have not used before any 3rd party brands. therefore i would like to know will the Samyang 8mm Fisheye F3.5 with canon mount able to fit on the full frame 5dmk2 body?

    my worst fear is it is not able to clear the mirror.

    thank you =)

    Bro zzyzx,
    actually octarine answered your question too..
    if you'd read the link he provided, this is what is stated..

    ...The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 is a dedicated full frame fisheye lens for APS-C DSLRs. You can also mount it to a full format (35mm) DSLR but the build-in lens hood will be visible in the image field in this case. ...
