I was watching this fisheye for a long time and finally took the plunge. It's definitely a niche lens, but you probably already know that if you want one. It's very well made, nice heavy feel, but compact and fits well on e mount cameras.
Manual lens but really easy to use. Great pics, small, light and solid build. 180degree perspective. I use it with Sony a6000.
I have made amazing photos with it. Mind you, it is fish eye. There is tons of distortion with it. I want to buy the Samyang 12 mm which is rectilinear and compare. I might keep both, we will see. Dont let the manual focus and aperture put you off, being so wide angle they are not much of an issue.
Build quality is great, and the image production is pretty good. Set focusing to anywhere from 6" to 2' with an f/stop around 5.6-8 and you can't really miss.
This lens is amazing value for money. The results are sharp and the distortion not too extreme. I had previously tried the Vivitar equivalent and had been very disappointed, but this lens is in the same league as Canon's own. Not being auto focus isn't and issue as the depth of field is enormous.
A Brilliant little lens on my Sony A6000
Had the rokinon 8mm f3.5 lens and it wasnt nearly as sharp as i had hoped, this 8mm f2.8 lens is what id hoped for. Found that at f5.6 to f8 focused between a meter and infinity its sharp close and far.
I brought the version II with NX mount. I was not sure between this lens or the Samsung NX 10mm fisheye lens. The NX lens has all the "extras" that would make it great (electronic extras like auto focus and exposition, and the feature button etc).
Excellent lens. Very sharp
What a great lens. Excellent quality construction. Beautiful images.
