Solid Lens. True to all its Specs.

  • Excerpt: The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens is everything as stated. Provides for clear, responsive output and is of a solid construction. I used it for test shots in my room, horizon shots on a dock, and on a hike, during which I took wide angle landscape shots and time-lapse shots for running water.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction

Lens works very well and using software, even more uses

  • Excerpt: I purchased the lens to use on summer vacation. My pictures are very sharp and the fish-eye effect is fun. I found that using Anglerfish software or Photoshop, I can remove much of the distortion and get very wide angle pictures.

Great value for non-full frame cameras

JeffW, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm sure it's in the details, but I didn't see it. When I first put the lens on my full frame 5D Mark II, I snapped some shots and instantly thought, "Oh no!", it added a HUGE black border around the picture. I then grabbed my 7D (non-full frame), shot some pics, and instantly felt better.

Great snag

jaucenet, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Lens is not amazing, but you can't find a fisheye for cheaper, and for me, fisheye is a play lens, so the cheaper the better. Not a work horse. Not sure how focus is.
