The Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm F3.5 captures everything in front of your camera in a unique curved perspective, but it's a love-it or hate-it lens.
Quite sharp. Offers a unique perspective. Compact.
Not for everyone. Expensive.
This diagonal fisheye lens provides a 180 degree angle of view from corner to corner when used with a Micro Four Thirds camera body. As this lens is designed especially for the Micro Four Thirds system is is very compact and can be picked up for around £600.

The compact size, and excellent optical performance of this fisheye optic will make it certainly worthy of consideration if the distorted fisheye effect is what you're after. The price is in-line with other manufacturers fisheye offerings for other camera systems, and this lens should be ranked up...
Excellent sharpness from maximum aperture, Good build quality, Fast focusing, Compact size
Flare with sun in the frame
This lens is fun to use. The weird, distorted perspective can be amusing – a close-up of the dog’s snout – or positively useful – looking straight up at the dome in the State Library. It could almost be mandatory for the European tour that is going to take in the great cathedrals.
Images from this lens are outstanding. Sharpness, contrast and colour are good. The video effect is spectacular. The hard-to-define feel of the lens is luxurious.
A very minor point – there is no image stabilisation. But used on an Olympus E Pen camera there is, because of the CCD-shift stabilisation in Olympus cameras.
Add this fisheye to a 10cm dome port and that's it!The image quality is amazing and you don't get that tunnel vision effect you have when using SLRs with fish eyes and minidome ports due do the image distortion associated with the dome.
I am a huge fan of Pansonic Lenses, particularly the Panasonic Leica lenses, and own 15 of them at the moment, most are Panasonic. This one is a dud. Why? Well, it's not a dud, it's just not at good as the competition. Pros: It is light and compact at 165 grams.
Great lens. Our architectural office uses the lens to take photos inside existing buildings to be renovated. Also a fun lens for creative photography. A bit pricey, but a good quality lens.
I use a fisheye often, both for interesting image composition in crowds, and most often for spherical panorama image acquisition in a PTGUI workflow. For the sphericals the sun is often a composition component. But this lens is subject to FLARE if the sun is anywhere in the image.
Worked great for my underwater photography. I love the 180.
This is one of those moments when you say....what a great purchase!! The best lens for interiors and very very stable and the auto focus is so fast.I LOVE IT!
This is a great lens. I just did 17 dives in Cozumel with it and my pics were twice as good as my last trip. I highly recommend this lens.
Great lens, great price
Great lens, motors are silent.
I tested several lenses for wide angle underwater photography and so far this is the best by far... It is very light and compact for one and the pictures are so crisp and clear.
