as advertised

happy consumer, Amazon

  • Summary: Great lens. One thing to note. When I got it, the manual focusing did not work. I called Olympus and learned that the manual focus is not manual. When the camera is set for manual focus, it will focus manually. But only while attached to the camera. What has been previously said, the lens works better stopped down. It works very well but you need to learn how to master it.

Excellent Lens Adds Creativity

Enginerrrrrrrrr, olympusamerica.com
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens to enable me to acquire some more creative shots. It ended up being so much more than that. The colors are exceptional, and all of my photos have been clear and crisp with minimal flare. I have used this lens for architectural photos, macros, and outdoors photos. I especially like how with outdoors photos it captures your entire field of view, giving you a shot no other lens can produce. An excellent buy despite it weighing as much as the camera body.

A DREAM COME TRUE

Jerry, olympusamerica.com
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I just received this lens, which I got to look at before my wife wrapped it for Christmas, so I was allowed to mount it to my E-500, and verify that it worked, and that was all I needed to know what I have gotten into! First off, this is not my first fish-eye lens… I had a 16mm OM Fish-Eye for my OM-1, and I truly enjoyed that lens. But, I had to part with it, and since then I have always wanted to replace it. This lens does the job.

Really like this lens

Chuck, B&H Photo
14 January 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a high quality lens. It is my first fisheye, and I'm having a great time with it. It presents all kinds of possibilities for innovative photography, as I'm beginning to learn. One constant is that the images I get are really sharp! You do have to watch out for getting your shadow in the picture... thus, it is great for cloudy days.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Good Value Used Lens

Adorama
6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a nice piece of glass, everything you would expect from an Olympus High Grade Lens. The optics are very good, and the build is excellent. It is priced in the same range as most of the big named competition and probably better built. An important part of the value of this kind of lens lies with the Olympus software that allows the fisheye effect to be adjusted up or down. This adds to the versatility and value of a fisheye lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Good Lens but a Matter of Priorities and Value for this Buyer

z, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice piece of glass, everything you would expect from an Olympus High Grade Lens. The optics are very good, and the build is excellent. It is priced in the same range as most of the big named competition and probably better built. This lens for me is about priorities more than anything else. First, if you are a hobbyist such as I am you have to make some choices.

I love this hemispherical Lens.

nano.maus, B&H Photo
10 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I love the exaggerated distortion this lens provides when doing close up shots. The 2x tele-extender works with the lens to provide you with even more separation of the back ground from the subject. Purple fringing is very negligible.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No rear filter capability
