This lens is often overlooked due to it's world known funny photos of close up dog nose shots and super warped images. Most people would think that this lens wouldn't work well for portraits at all. This lens is one of my absolute FAVORITE to use at the beach. The super wide fish eye allows me to show stretches of beach and sky and add some dynamic portraits to my clients galleries. It's a super fun lens to use with kids. I often let them run behind me to really capture kids, laughing while chasing me. You'll see all the portraits below were used with this lens, they are beautiful, and different than my traditional portraits. What I love most is being able to have galleries with close, traditional portraits, and then these super wide portraits that show them in a completely different way. My clients galleries end up looking beautiful with both of these opposite portrait types. Hands down the BEST beach lens to use to capture stunning skies, oceans and scenery! 
When you use this lens you can fully control this warping you see with how you are holding the lens. When you hold the lens straight at your subject, your horizon line will be straight. When you point down with the lens you'll see that 'round earth effect' (like in the photos with the kids hugging). If you point it up you'll get that reversed round effect. If you don't want to have that warped look but still get that wide view, then all you have to do is hold it straight. Another option you have is to do a 'lens correction' in lightroom when your editing your image which will open up a window and allow you to adjust the warping.

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Lens from Canon delivers 180° diagonal angle of view images for all EOS SLR cameras with imaging formats ranging from full-frame to APS-C. When the lens is used with full-frame cameras you can choose between a circular fisheye image or full-frame image by using the zoom.

When used with EOS bodies featuring APS-C or APS-H sensors, the lens produces a more traditional, full frame fisheye view. A zoom-lock mechanism on the lens body allows the range to be limited to the focal length that ensures the best possible full-frame view without unsightly vignetting around the edge. 'C' and 'H' markings can be found next to the zoom operation ring, indicating the wide-angle zoom position where vignette-free shooting is possible with either sensor. For filmmakers and photographers who want the look and feel only possible with extreme wide angle and fisheye photography, the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM is a world-class choice.

With its Ultrasonic Motor (USM), and Floating Focus System the lens offers fast auto focus even down to a close 6.2" (0.16 m). The lens features UD glass for suppression of chromatic aberration, a Subwavelength coating for reduced ghosting, a Fluorine coating that keeps soiling, smears and fingerprints to a minimum, has full-time manual focus for instant switching from AF to Manual operation, and is built to the standards of the amazing Canon L-series of lenses. The rear gel holder holds up to 3 pre-cut filters. This means the finest optics, the best construction and the best performance available, all in a lens designed to stimulate creativity and deliver stunning images every time.
