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.

  • +

    Excellent sharpness in the centre when stopped down, Good build quality, Stepless aperture is an excellent feature for those recording video, Inexpensive, Stereographic projection

  • -

    If shooting stills, the unique design may be more a curse than a blessing, Geared focusing and aperture rings can be a little uncomfortable

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.

  • +

    Good build quality, The use of difficult in making but good for photos stereographic projection, Excellent image quality in the center of the frame, Very good side-of-the-frame image quality, Relatively well-controlled coma, Insignificant astigmatism, Little vignetting

  • -

    Significant chromatic aberration around maximum aperture, It is impossible to use filters

Did my usual research and decided this lens would be a great addition to my Kit. ..High quality build, easy to use...great fisheye effect and a super wide landscape lens...Great value and will bring anyone diversity with thier photographic efforts. ..Very pleased with this, my first Samyang lens.

I did some research before buying a wide angle lens. Not wanting to spend a fortune for a lens that I won't use too often, I am very pleased with the quality of this product. Best quality for the price!

This lens works with APC and full frame sensors. You will have to crop somewhat with full frame sensors but it is a very good lens. A bargain.

Lens works perfectly. Allows for very interesting effects using a Canon Rebel.

Could not get along with this lens. It is manual focus and if you put on f22 you can't see what you are taking as it is too dark. You have to snap away and then check photos on the computer. Saved up and bought the sigma fisheye.

I have been using this for virtual tours only and I would highly recommend this product for the ease of use and value for money.

Fits my canon 750D great and does the job for a lot cheaper than the other brands

This lens is NOT for a Canon - change the listings and save someone else the hassle!

If you want a lens for panoramic or 360 photography, just buy it. I'm absolutely blown away by the image quality and the stitching results are fantastic. I was hesitant at first but honestly, it's a great lens. Don't even think about buying the canon equivalent.
