Product Description

Product Description

The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC Fisheye is a stunningly high quality wide angle lens. The lens is designed for cameras with an APS-C sensor, and its optical construction is based on 10 elements in 7 groups. Thanks to the use of an Aspherical hybrid lens and the newest generation multilayer anti–reflection coating, the optical performance is maintained to the highest possible level. The aperture consists of six diaphragm blades and can be closed down to f/22 for incredible depth-of-field. A built-in lens hood is also fitted to prevent flare. The lens offers a huge 180 degrees field of view. Thanks to the fisheye nature of this lens you can discover a whole new reality. The artistic expression offered by such perspective means your imagination is the only limit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Lens! 6 Aug 2013
By RichH

For the money - what a brilliant lens! Ok so theres no autofocus but unless you are shooting something 3 inches in front of the lens, choose f5.6 or above and its all in focus anyway!

Needs reasonably careful exposure but I use it on Manual with a daytime aperture of around f5.6 - f8, focus set to Infinity and shoot raw to make minor adjustments later. I use the histogram and bracket if necessary but most shots are well exposed. Just remember that outdoors it can see a lot of bright sky so apply a touch of exposure compensation.

Highly recommended when compared to the price of the Canon equivalent and for the limited use it will get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lens for the price! 9 May 2013

The only obvious lack here for me is the auto focus. The lens sharpness, the colours and such all seems to be fine. Obviously if you can afford the official Canon fish eye lens, you should definitely be buying that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 28 Nov 2013
By Jackson

Lens captures crisp clear images with relatively little loss of clarity towards the edges of the image. The infinite focal length makes this incredibly easy to use especially in dark environments.
Its also worth noting that the lens is so large that you will probably need an external flash because the lens leaves a shadow at the bottom of the image.

I'm having so much fun with this lens. It's very cheap compared with others but it is a great piece of equipment for anyone who wants to start playing around with fisheyes and wide angles.
Highly Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Manual Lens, works like a dream 21 Jan 2014
By H
Verified Purchase
I was a little worried about this lens before I bought it, I had fancied a fisheye for years but couldn't bring myself to part with the £600 or so for a Cannon or Sigma lens. I came across this after reading about it in a magazine and at first was a little worried about it being a manual lens. However, set the Aperture to 8 and the focus to infinity and every single picture you take will be pin sharp. It works ok in very low light but really excells at wide open shots with foreground interest.

It is very solid, well made and simple to use, the detachable hood is a bonus over the older model and the price is superb.

This lens opens up a whole new world of photography, buy it!
