    New Canon EOS RF 5.2 mm f2.8 dual fisheye lens

    I have read that the field of view of this lens is so wide that if you look through the viewfinder, you can see your own backside!

    Not something I will be buying then as not a pretty sight, great for the pornographers though.

      Handy to get a shot of what’s going on behind you at the same time as the shot in front!

        All joking aside, is there a place for this in photography? Or is it just for drones and video work ?
        And is this the first time anyone has produced a dual lens ?

          It would be more than useful to the military especially for drone work. Extra WA lens are already being used for surveillance and reconnaissance purposes. I frequently use the 14mm f2.8.

            Yes, moving smartly away from my flippant initial post, the lens is apparently intended for Virtual Reality applications.

              Sorry to be a dunce, but there really is a question in there !

              I gather it has 190 degree vision

              I get the video and drone stuff but would you ever take a photo with it.... for instance on top of a viewpoint such as the Shard to show London spread out in front of you?

              Or would the bendy bits mean you'd be better doing a panorama stitch ?
