I never have used a fisheye lens before and was hesitant to get an off-brand lens. The manual focus and aperture ring appealed to me and the price is certainly right, so I made the jump.
Color and sharpness are very good; "pleasing" is a good descriptor.
Fisheye lenses are great creative tools, but generally not a necessity in your bag. So, having a great bang-for-your-buck fisheye available like this one is just what I needed. It's small and light, so it is almost always in my bag for something a little different or going super-wide in a landscape.
I have a GH4 and was looking for a nice fisheye for travel photos and videos. I use this midway through a lot of trips, and find myself keeping it on until I absolutely need to photo something further than 15' away. It's great and sharp.
As much as I can tell with my aging OM-D E-M5, this lens is sharp edge-to-edge, with only very little loss of quality (minute fringing). Definitely higher quality than my M.Zuiko 17mm and at least as good as the M.Zuiko 12mm.
I'm using this for my BMPCC, the crop factor is actually a good thing, it makes the distortion look less severe, and less "gopro" like, the focal length is not super wide with the crop factor, but it is pretty decent.
I shoot nearly all formats, with medium format film (mostly 6x4.5) being my normal. My digital camera, Nikon D7000 has been a phenomenal piece of equipment but I decided that since my film is my career and digital is my fun toy I would dive in to the compact world of Micro Four Thirds.
Super solid build, mostly metal. Works great with my GH3. This lens has a super close focal distance, good for some creative shots. Has extremely wide angle, and the focus ring is nice and buttery. The fish eye looks really nice on it.
Had a Rokinon fisheye that was used on a Nikon DX camera and was never happy with the results: pictures were only sharp in the center and exhibited very high CAs that required strong treatment every time.
I got this lens to get a wider lens for interior shots and inside the car, using my car mount. Works great on my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. Crisp, deep focus and fast enough for most purposes. Highly recommended. Only bummer is some visual defects.
