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: 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.
Excerpt: This is an exceptional lens. Don't let the price tag fool you. Some of my favorite shots have been taken with this lens. Just take your time during composition and mind your toes and knuckles.
Summary: It's a great lens with exceptional quality. I am not a professional so I can only comment on photo I took for personal trips, the side are severely distorted as one would expect from a fish eye lens, but I use it for landscape so the distortion is less visible.
