Samyang 8mm T3.8 Asph IF MC Fisheye Review

ePHOTOzine
11 August 2012
  • Summary: The unique design of this lens should certainly appeal to those who record video with their DSLR. Although the lens is perfectly capable of shooting stills as well, those who primarily take images, rather than videos may want to look towards the slightly cheaper standard version of this lens.
  • Pros: Excellent sharpness in the centre when stopped down, Good build quality, Stepless aperture is an excellent feature for those recording video, Inexpensive, Stereographic projection
  • Cons: If shooting stills, the unique design may be more a curse than a blessing, Geared focusing and aperture rings can be a little uncomfortable

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye (Sony NEX) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 CS Fisheye is certainly a more than welcome addition to the Sony NEX system. The near-stereographic projection doesn't look quite as extreme as in conventional fisheye lenses despite the similar field-of-view so its applications are in fact broader.

  • Excerpt: At such a price you can't expect everything and as such, it's manual focus only and the aperture has to be set via the aperture ring on the lens, rather than through the camera. That means you'll need to shoot in Manual mode.

  • Conclusion: We were very curious about the results of this review. Recently, we have been positively surprised by Samyang 85 mm f/1.4, which, around maximum aperture, could face even the most renowned competitors. Now, Samyang 8 mm f/3.5 finally arrived.
  • Cons: Significant chromatic aberration around maximum aperture, It is impossible to use filters

  • Summary: Szkielet Olympusa E-PL3 został zrobiony z wysokiej jakości tworzywa sztucznego, ale całość zamknięto w blaszaną "puszkę". Aparat jest sztywny i robi wrażenie bardzo solidnego. Małe rozmiary wymuszają ograniczenie zarówno liczby jak i wielkości elementów sterujących.
  • Pros: dobra jakość obrazu w szerokim zakresie czułości,, małe rozmiary,, solidna obudowa,, „ładny” wygląd,, bogate, czytelne i funkcjonalne menu,, ergonomia przycisków na dość dobrym poziomie,, skuteczny system czyszczenia matrycy,, regulowany czas w trybie odpowiadającym wstępnemu podnoszeniu lustra w...
  • Cons: stosunkowo wysokie szumy na najwyższych czułościach,, brak wbudowanego wizjera,, brak wbudowanej lampy błyskowej (mała lampa zewnętrzna w zestawie),, stosunkowo niska moc lampy błyskowej,, wyraźne odbicia w wyświetlaczu podczas pracy w ostrym świetle,, ingerencja w RAW-y na poziomie prądu ciemneg...
