Excerpt: I have had a blast with this lens since the moment I got it. You've heard the old saying, "you get what you pay for!", well at this price, you get more. It's a manual focus lens but, I dial in f5.6-8, set focus to infinity, and shoot away. You can fumble to get the focus sharper but I believe you'll be happy with what you get. It's fantastic in well lit situations and when there's not much light.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Puts A Smile On Your Face, Reliable
Summary: I needed a wide lens for my GH3 because of the 2x factor on all my Canon FD lenses. The small size kills me. My youngest daughter grabbed it, thinking it was a toy lens. It is so small that I cannot handle the camera with the lens and as of the day I got it, I've used it less and less on every job. Maybe it is me but I don't expect to use this lens anymore and shall probably sell it.
Excerpt: Got this based on reviews I got thru the micro 4/3 community. Thought I would satisfy my curiosity about fisheyes (and I did!). I already had the Olympus 9-18mm, which works great with both my E-620 and E-PM1 (using the Pana adapter). <br /><br />This is great for the "retro" look, as a fisheye, smaller to carry around than the 9-18, and so far I have been pleased with the ability to "straigten out" the shots in Light Room using the Simga 9mm...
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am currently using the GH3, and since the new MFT mirrorless had a crop factor of x2 (and I can say, it is slightly more cropped than that) I needed a wide angle lens for those tight shots. Rokinon (or also known as Samyang, Bower) was a great lens I had experience with in the past. The 35mm was a great prime lens for my previous Canon DSLR. So I knew the Samyang line were the way to go.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
