This lens is very sharp and very fast which makes it great for low light photography, especially Milky Way/star photos. It is also very wide and the fisheye makes it a lens that isn't appropriate for every situation. But when you can use it, it is Awesome! Also maintains the small m43 form factor.
Have been slowly switching to micro four thirds since my canons have become to heavy to use with my arthritis. Have fallen in love with the Olympus system, and their glass is top notch. This is my first fisheye where I could actually use it hand holding in lower light.
Hands down this is the nicest full-frame fisheye I have used. If you want the best quality fisheye for MFT, look no further. I have the Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 which suffers from flare. The Panasonic is lighter, but the Olympus is still way lighter than a full-frame camera lens.
Probably not a lens I'll use everyday but sure love the end result. Very sharp, just fun to play with. Also I appreciate the lens hood and it's design, it fits over the lens which protrudes a little and also the small lens hood. Also, the lens it self is very compact.
I got the Samyang 7.5 mm fisheye a few months ago and found I very much liked what it could do, if not how difficult it was to handle. The performance of the Olympus 8 mm has been as big an improvement as the price would suggest, in the few weeks I have had it.
I have to be honest, at first I wasn't sure if I liked this lens but it was only because I hadn't had time to really test it out. I have to say after a weekend of using it, I fell in love. This is a great lens for landscape, cityscape, and nighttime sky photography which is mostly what I shoot.
This is my very first wide angle (fisheye) lens and I'm completely satisfied with it. Because of the proven quality of all Olympus prime lenses and because I do really like architectural and underwater photography, this's been a very serious candidate lens to have in my bag, and finally I have it.
I LOVE, LOVE this lens. It is super sharp and great for getting wide angle shots not possible with my other Oly lenses. This is more than a specialty product.
I am using this on a Panasonic Lumix G9 and it is terrific. Autofocus works, aperture is controlled by the camera, and Body IS works, which is all you need to hand hold an 8mm lens. Sharp corner to corner, and no flare even when the sun is in the frame.
I own the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8. While it is a great lens, I often find it much too bulky for an M43 body. If I'm packing a full kit the 7-14 is my go to lens, but if I want to travel light, or need to shoot in a low light setting (i.e.
