Summary: Bottom line it is very impressive using on Panasonic micro four thirds ( I used gh7). If you import into light room and select lens correction- profile -gopro and it straightens everything up like magic with some cropping you end up with a rectangular wide angle photo. Very cool.
Summary: Works fine. Image quality is good. It is a manual lens, so you might have to set your camera to shoot with no lens. I do on my Lumix GX1 but not on my Olympus OMD EM5. It is not an everyday lens with its extreme angle of view and curved distortion but it has a place in my camera bag for that unique...
Summary: My copy of this lens is excellent in terms of resolution, contrast and freedom from flare. It is a lot of fun to use especially in buildings were you want to show a lot of the interior in one photo.
Excerpt: With this lensi you can take photos at ISO 100 in extremely low light situation. It's only 3.5 aperture but with that wide opening it's enough for taking photos without extra support (just by hand) at so slow shutter speed than 1: 2,5 without problems. Manual focus is not a problem either.
Summary: I love fisheye lenses; I own the 8mm Samyang fisheye for Canon EF-S mount and had great fun with it. This one is even better! Because it's so tiny, mounted on my Panasonic GX7, it's really easy to position it in interesting location.
Summary: I have the Rokinon version of this lens, another brand is Bower, all are actually made by Samyang. I also use it on a GX7 and I have to say I have a completely different experience than the one-star reviewer -- this lens is super-sharp and has become one of the favored lenses in my kit.
