Excerpt: Although I am still not big on the bulbous look of fish-eyed photographs, I bought this lens for very-wide outdoor work. I had played with the defishing feature of DxO Viewpoint and was not sure that I could get a rectilinear shot I liked, but after having used the lens for a couple of weeks, I have...
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Smallest With Automation
Excerpt: Add this fisheye to a 10cm dome port and that's it! The image quality is amazing and you don't get that tunnel vision effect you have when using SLRs with fish eyes and minidome ports due do the image distortion associated with the dome.
Summary: I bought this lens as a gift for my boyfriend as he's an underwater photographer. He absolutely loves the lens and has taken some beautiful pictures with it already. He couldn't wait to dive with it and show off the new pictures. While the lens is pretty hefty, thanks to the 4/3s system...
Excerpt: It is a very nice fisheye lens. It is very light and very small, but the image quality is great. I use this lens mostly indoors with enough light, but it is also quite impressive even at lower light levels.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I use this lens for just about any subject. In extreme close up photos (flowers) I try to use the distortion to enhance the subject while shooting landscapes I can make the distortion almost invisible in some ways.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It came between this lens for my beloved GH3 and the Century Extreme fisheye for my HPX170. Besides the obvious $2000 price difference, this lens is a no brainer if you're looking into a m4/3 fisheye.There is zero vingetteing on this which was a huge plus for me.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I took pictures of my granddaughter at the playground and the fisheye lens really made the shots look really cool. When she was in the swing and the shots taken while she was in the air with the fisheye lens make for a unique and great looking shot. This is just fun.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Unique Shots
