Outrageous field of view (and dreams)

  • Excerpt: Smallest decent fisheye lens found anywhere. Yes, there is moderate barrel distortion but that is the effect of any 8mm and for me a very special effect that will go along way in telling the story and landscape scope of a 300 mile trek on the Camino de Santiago path next week in Spain!
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Distortion But This Is Ok

Super compact fisheye

  • Summary: I don't use this lens a lot, but I am always impressed with it. It's so small that there is really no excuse to leave it at home! If you don't care about autofocus, then you could buy the Samyang manual focus version and save some $. But I bought this and love it.

Great little lens!

  • Excerpt: I first bought the Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye. But since I do a lot of close-up with my kids, I needed AF since they move a lot. On my Olympus E-M1, the focus is fast in good light, and a little bit slower when the lightning is dimmer. <br /><br />The lens is very sharp in the center wide opened. And at f5.6 and above, it is sharp corner to corner. It can flare a lot but less than with the Samyang, not by much thought.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Small, sharp lens, great for underwater use in a housing

  • Summary: I bought this lens to dive with an Olympus E-PL5 in a Nauticam housing and a dome port. If you are considering doing that, this lens will make you very happy. I got great shots with it, sharp from edge to edge, with everything in focus even with subjects an inch or two in front of the port.

Worth the splurge!

  • Excerpt: I've been contemplating this lens for about a year. It was hard to justify it because I already own the 7-14mm Lumix lens. I finally took the plunge and am very pleased with the fisheye. The bubbled effect is A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I would totally recommend this lens to others.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
