Very Good Fisheye Lens for M43 Cameras

Sandia Keith, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: I personally like this lens for a very wide field of view. Distorted, Yes, it's a fisheye. I use it on an Olympus OM-D E-M5, and really just have to play with some small adjustment. As a matter of fact, it will work on this camera when put on, with out a fuss. The EM-5 settings can make it play a little better, but most adjustments will not improve your shooting. There is a way to magnify focus, and that's what I use to help out the image by just checking.

Sold under different names

Alan deLespinasse, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I just want to point out that this lens is sold under at least three different brand names: Samyang, Bower , and Rokinon . (The other reviewer mentioned ProOptic, but I didn't find that in an Amazon search, so I guess it's no longer sold under that name.) They're all the same lens, and prices vary quite a bit, so shop around. The Rokinon version has the most reviews, so go there to learn more.

Awesome on the OM-D EM-5!

Paul S.C., B&H Photo
26 February 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is awesome. Period. If you have been considering getting a fisheye on MFT, just get this lens. It is SO amazing for the money.If you are nervous about manual focus, do not fret! With such a wide angle lens, you get a huge depth of field without trying. I set mine around f/5.6 and pull the focus just a tiny bit before infinity and everything from a meter or two away to infinity is sharp.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great lens for m4/3

A/V Man, B&H Photo
4 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Great lens. If you are looking for a high quality fisheye look no further. This thing is sharp, well built, and delivers beautiful high contrast images. Don't worry that its only manual focus and aperture. Just shoot in A or M modes. I also program a fn. button on my OMD to zoom in on a selected area so manual focus is painless. Most shots are at infinity anyways. One negative to mention, I do not like the lens cap.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Bad Lens Cap

Extraordinary Fish Eye MFT Lens

Arnon, B&H Photo
25 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a loss adjuster and surveyor and use (amongst oters)an Olympus OMD E-M5 camera for work and leisure. For showing large expanses of production halls, buildings etc. I find this lens very useful - both at work as well as for tourism, where it allows expansive internal building photos (with the high ISO available in the OMD, with very good results!).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Manual focus lens, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Have not found bad points

Best value for m43rds fisheye lenses

mnmnyuen, B&H Photo
22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I have been looking at the following Fisheye lens in the m43rds format: Pany Fisheye Pany Fisheye converter for 14mm Samyang Fisheye The converter makes the 14mm about an 11mm, which isn't as wide as the Samyang at 7.5mm, and the Samyang is much cheaper than the Pany Fisheye (nearly half the cost), so in terms of performance to cost, this Samyang is easily the best value for the m43rds format so far.

Lots of fun and does nice senics

Jblk9695, B&H Photo
19 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I use this little lens on a Oly Epl1 and on a Pany G1 with really pleasing results. Lots of fun to just play around with, just don't forget to change the focus if your getting up close to your subject. Works very well for senics, has very nice color, a bit on the warm side but I like that. Takes in a whole lot of landscape just be careful with alignment or use the curve of the lens for different effects.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction
