Product Description

Colour: Black

Product Description

Samyang’s 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye is currently the smallest and brightest Fisheye lens compatible with compact system cameras featuring the APS-C sensor. It perfectly combines high optical value, impressive lens speed and exceptionally compact dimensions. The sophisticated optical construction relies on a system of 10 lens elements arranged in 8 groups. They include one Aspherical and two Extra low Dispersion glass (ED) elements. This provides perfect sharpness over the entire field of view and a maximum aperture of f/2.8. All lens surfaces have multi-layered UMC anti-reflective coatings applied which add to the high contrast rendition and superb light transmission. The maximum angle of view is a staggering 180 degrees and minimum focusing distance is just 0.3m.

Good glass providing very clear detailed images, at f8 no need to focus so you can concentrate on the image the you want to capture. Gives a unique view of the world for Fuji X series cameras at budget cost with no real loss of quality over XF lenses. Will always have a place in my travelling bag.

Well-built and excellent value for money. Fisheye lenses present a steep learning curve if you don't want a portfolio full of curved images, but if you accept the challenge there are all sorts of interesting uses. Best to shoot in raw then edit to control the distortion and high contrast, but the results can be rewarding.
It is a manual lens, but this isn't a problem as the amazing depth of field makes this pretty much point and shoot photography. The only downside is that, when combined with the Fuji X-E2, the exif data generated is actually wrong, rather then just missing.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was really surprised by the quality of the lens, both optically and build quality. Build quality first, it is top notch. Focus ring is lovely and smooth but a bit on the stiff side, but I suppose it will loosen with use. It has a lovely metal construction which makes the lens feel like a quality lens should do. However, It's not too heavy though as it is a lot smaller that I though it was going to be.

Image quality is great, i'm really pleased with the results. It is great to have a lens like this in your kit back to give the opportunity to take some really creative shots. As it states, the lens is pretty sharp across the whole field of view. Love the fact that it is fully manual too.

All in all, i'm really pleased with this lens. It may not be a really well know Japanese brand, but in my opinion, this Korean company know how to make a quality lens. I'm impressed!

Stopped down to around F8 the depth of field on this lens is fantastic, although it's certainly usable when open wide, I'm not too confident about the focus scale but this can be worked out in-camera.

I'm glad I bought it but I'm not using it as much as I thought I might, it can be fun for the odd situation where the distortion can assist with creativity. I ended up buying a wide angle lens (Fuji XF 10-24 R OIS) which has a really great angle of view without the distortion, so now this has been relegated to one of my lesser used lenses. It's so small that it's not a pain to bring along with the rest of your equipment anyway to be honest.

Physically, it seems solid and looks good on my X-T1.

Recommended.

Nicely built and affordable little lens. The Plastic hood is strong and permanent.

This lens is fully manually operated, but presents no problem in focussing, as very short focal length the focusing is not as critical.
Image quality is great. If you are looking for this, then you know that images will have highly curved geometric distortion which are typical of fish-eye lenses.
This also comes with a well-written instruction manual.
