great specialty lens

  • Excerpt: I use the lens for landscape shots where I want to accentuate the horizon. By tilting the lens up, the lens introduces curvature. It produces soom interesting close ups.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: NONE

pocket Fisheye

  • Excerpt: Fisheyes are usually soft wide open. This lens is no different but seems to be contrasty and reasonably sharp at 4, 5.6 and beyond. The characteristic distortion of a fisheye is something you work with but I find this lens to have just a tad less than usual --a good thing. Its compact and well built and... expensive. It is the only game in town for micro 4/3. The lens cap is clever and well made and I shutter at the prospect of loosing it and having to replace it.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction

Fun but expensive and very specialized

  • Excerpt: This lens is a diagonal fisheye lens and is very sharp. I had an old circular fisheye lens years ago and this lens is much more useful. It still produces a lot of distortion toward the edges and of objects near the camera. A bubble level on the hotshoe is useful. A great lens for interior full room shots. Note their is no optical stableization built into this lens, but at 8mm this is not usually a problem.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Durability, Expensive but unmatched

Großer Winkel mit perspektivischer Verzerrung

Ben Amato "Ben Amato", Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: Das relativ kompakte Objektiv bietet einen sehr großen Winkel; ob es wirklich 180 Grad sind, erscheint mir fraglich, aber es dürfte nahe dran sein. Der Winkel ist sogar deutlich größer als beim 7 - 14 mm Zoomobjektiv. Dafür muss man eine extreme tonnenförmige Verzerrung in Kauf nehmen - Fischauge halt. Die Perspektive ist faszinierend, aber nur was für besondere Motive oder kreative Aufnahmen.

Aufregend, aber nicht für jeden Tag u jedes Motiv

Blue-Focus "BF", Amazon

  • Summary: Ein Fisheye mit gestrecktem Bildfeld von 180° Bildwinkel ist ein Spezial-Objektiv mit natürlicher Verzeichnung, daß sicher kaum täglich zum Einsatz kommt und dessen Effekt sich rasch abnutzen kann und doch sind die Möglichkeiten mit diesem herrlich kompakten Objektiv an Panasonic und Olympus mFT Kameras einfach klasse.
