Reviews

The Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye (also marketed as Rokinon on some markets)  is both very sharp and affordable, but are there any caveats to it? 

 

"To get the best focus accuracy, you should ideally focus manually using the largest aperture (f/3.5). When finding the focus range, you can then stop down the aperture to the desired size, and take the picture. Most system cameras handle this process

Here's a rarity. It is a new Fisheye lens, it is very cheap, and also exceptional. Samyang, the Korean masters of manual focusing wide lenses, strikes again:

 

"The Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye is certainly a more than welcome addition to the Micro-Four-Thirds system. The near-stereographic projection doesn't look quite as extreme as in conventional fisheye lenses despite the similar field-of-view so its applications are in fact broader
