Excerpt: I picked this up as a Deal Zone offer a while back. Coincidentally I had been looking for a fisheye lens for a particular project. This is actually my second Rokinon lens and I must say I'm impressed with their lenses so far.
Excerpt: Have been wanting to get a fisheye lens for my camera and this is one of the lenses that I have been watching. Finally pulled the trigger and been very happy with it. The lens is pretty sharp wide open (f3.5)...in most cases, I use around f5.6-f11.
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.
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.
