|FD||The lens is designed for Canon 35 mm film SLR cameras and is not compatible with Canon EOS digital SLR cameras due to shorter flange focal distance of Canon FD mount.|
|S.S.C.||The Super Spectra Coating is applied to the surface of lens elements. It boosts light transmission, ensures sharp and high contrast images, minimizes ghosting and flares.|
|FISHEYE||Fisheye lens designed to provide 180-degree field of view.|

Design and Features
This is a equidistant projection type of fish-eye lens which expands the use of the FD series of lenses and the Canon F-1 system. A 180° angle-of-view is taken in a 23mm diameter circle in the 24mm x 35mm picture frame. An 11-element, 8-component construction, it has six built-in filters.
Its reduced size is the same as that of standard lenses.
Because it is equipped with an equidistant projection mechanism, it is ideal for photographing astronomical and azimuth phenomena. When used in ordinary photography, it is particularly suitable in achieving special effects.
It can be used to see the field-of-view through the viewfinder without fixing the mirror upward.
