  • 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.

Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5

CNET

  • Summary: Given the limited applications for a fish-eye lens and the expensive list price, we can't help but wonder how many of these units Panasonic will sell. If you want to shoot real fish-eye and Micro Four Thirds is your system of choice, the 8mm is the best (but most expensive) option.
  • Pros: Dramatic 180-degree fish-eye effect, Full automatic and manual control
  • Cons: Expensive considering its limited usage

Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5 (H-F008) Lens

PhotoReview
1 January 2011
  • Summary: A lens with a peripherally distorted, ultra-wide angle of view for Micro Four Thirds System cameras.People are often intrigued by anything that changes the way they view subjects, which accounts for some of the popularity of fisheye lenses. Panasonic's Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5 lens, which was announced in June, is the first (and, so far, only) fisheye lens for Micro Four Thirds System cameras.
  • Pros: You really want the novel perspective a fisheye lens provides., You shoot plenty of close-to-the-action videos. Don't buy this lens if :, You require high image quality across the aperture range of the lens. IMATEST GRAPHS (based on JPEG images from the DMC-GF2)

  • 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.
