Canon’s EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM interchangeable lens has received a prestigious Camera Grand Prix 2012 “Lens of the Year Award” in Japan.
This fisheye lens has now won two international awards, including the “Best Professional DSLR Lens in 2012” in Europe by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).*1
The Camera Grand Prix is organised by the Camera Journal Press Club, comprising journalists from major domestic photography and camera magazines.
Separated into four award categories, the 29th Camera Grand Prix honoured Canon’s EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM with the award based on a review of lens products introduced in the Japanese market during the past year.
“This latest award is a tremendous affirmation of Canon’s leadership in optical technology and reinforces why Canon EOS is Australia’s brand of choice for interchangeable lens cameras,” said Canon Australia assistant brand manager – EOS, Rebecca Pearson.
“The two awards received this year are formal industry recognition of the EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM’s innovative, extreme wide angle and fisheye performance, made possible by Canon’s optical technologies.”
