Excerpt: Bought this as a less expensive approach to superwide videos on my GH4. Also to be used at large festival in Atlanta this week and the Albuquerque Balloon Fest in a few weeks. Never had a fisheye befoe but very impressed with how well it works with my GH4. Very light and so far the quality seems to be excellent.
Excerpt: I recently used this little baby on a low budget film with de BMPCC and it was really nice. It`s a very good replacement for the Cinema Lens of the same brand, maybe at a cost of one step of aperture. For the size of the sensor, this a great chance to have long shots.
Excerpt: Nice fun lens;not a serious instrument.Seems well constructed but not what I would term a sharp lens.Since I only bought it as an affordable novelty,I don't feel like it doesn't meet my expectations.
Excerpt: This lens is sharp even in it's extreme corners. Even though this Fish Eye Lens distorts in able to capture a full 180 degrees the sharpness across the frame will allow you to re-align without distortion in post processing and still be super sharp. So it can be two lenses, a Fish Eye in the field or ,through processing, an ultra wide.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Sharp
Excerpt: This lens is a joy and a delight! The build and quality are really decent. Because of the nature of this lens (it's convex, i.e., it bubbles out), you can't add a layer of protection with a UV lens filter. That said, they considerately built in the petal-type lens hood to protect it from knocks.
Adding to the chorus - this is a very fun lens, and sharp.

Summary: I didn't think I dug the distortion of a fisheye so I resisted buying this for my M4/3 set up, despite reading lots of positive reviews. I got it for around $200 on a Black Friday sale and I'm very glad I did. I recommend it to anyone building an M4/3 kit.
