Something smells fishy… and it could be because Canon has designed a fisheye zoom lens for the Canon EOS R family of full-frame mirrorless cameras. 

The manufacturer has been hard at work on the Canon RF 8-15mm f/4 Fisheye – which is a mirrorless version of one of the best fisheye lenses, the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM for DSLRs.
