  • Excerpt: Sporting a very minimalist look, the lens is designed for the Micro Four Thirds mount of Panasonic's Lumix G range and while at 8mm it may appear to have a wide coverage, it's worth remembering that the Micro Four Thirds format has a crop factor of 2x, making this a 16mm full-frame equivalent (with a 180º view). The lens‘˜s construction is mainly plastic to lighten the weight but it balances well when attached to Panasonic's G-series cameras, such as the Lumix G3.

[REVIEW—Panasonic Lumix G 8mm fisheye lens]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Summary: This lens is fun to use. The weird, distorted perspective can be amusing – a close-up of the dog’s snout – or positively useful – looking straight up at the dome in the State Library. It could almost be mandatory for the European tour that is going to take in the great cathedrals. A fisheye view of the church ceilings with elaborate fan vaulting, as in Bath Abbey for instance, is the way to do it.
  • Pros: Images from this lens are outstanding. Sharpness, contrast and colour are good. The video effect is spectacular. The hard-to-define feel of the lens is luxurious.
  • Cons: A very minor point – there is no image stabilisation. But used on an Olympus E Pen camera there is, because of the CCD-shift stabilisation in Olympus cameras.

  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm F3.5 w większości kategorii testowych poradził sobie bardzo dobrze. Właściwie jedyną większą wadą jest silna aberracja chromatyczna na brzegu kadru. Jako że obiektyw w zasadzie nie posiada konkurencji, staje się godny polecenia wszystkim użytkownikom systemu Micro 4/3, chcącym korzystać z efektów osiaganych przez obiektywy typu rybie oko.
  • Pros: dobra ostrość w całym obszarze kadru do przysłony f/7,1, dobrze korygowana koma i aberracje chromatyczne wzdłużne, niewielka podatność na odblaski, kompaktowa, lekka obudowa, możliwosć korzystania z żelowych filtrów

Panasonic 8 mm

  • Summary: The Panasonic 8 mm fisheye is a surprisingly compact, lightweight, high quality lens. Both in construction/finish and in optical performance. The large viewing angle ( 8 mm  micro-43 equals 16 mm full frame) and the characteristic fisheye distortion, introduce you to a whole new way of making pictures. In comparison with a traditional wide angle lens (28 mm full frame), this lens offers 50% more view. And that is a lot more than you might expect.
