Canon has doubled down on its lenses for VR content creators with its second stereoscopic optic: the Canon RF-S 3.9mm f/3.5 STM Dual Fisheye lens.

I first saw a prototype of the lens at The Photography & Video Show earlier this year, where Canon explained that "we are heavily invested in virtual Reality and we want to get these products out as soon as possible." The company wasn't kidding, as the Canon RF-S 3.9mm f/3.5 STM Dual Fisheye has now come to fruition.
