The Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens is extremely compact, yet it successfully combines some of the best optical features and comes in stylish black and silver finishes.
The lens construction is 9 elements arranged in 7 groups with a 6 bladed aperture. The fixed, built-in lens hood helps to block flare from behind the lens.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The results are very sharp (if focused properly), which I could tell immediately I looked at the magnified view through my CSC's viewfinder.
Editing my images confirms that there is bags of fine detail, excellent contrast and good control of flare, even when shooting almost into the sun.
I bought this lens to use with my Lumix cameras because my favourite film lens was a 16mm fisheye. The Samyang 7.5mm delivers a very similar result but in a lighter and smaller package, but with the same quality of construction and image.
Remember that this lens is manual focus and manual aperture, so you have to close down the aperture yourself before you take the shot. For critical focusing I would probably focus at f3.5 and then close-down to my desired aperture for sharpness and depth-of-focus. In practice if I'm lazy I just set the aperture at f5.6 or f8, set aperture priority (A mode) on the camera and let it decide the shutter speed. I do enjoy having the manual aperture setting, something I miss from the days of film as most digital cameras (except Fuji of course) have lenses that don't have an aperture ring.
Remember that this is a fisheye, so any straight lines in your images won't stay straight, they will appear 'bowed' as the lens delivers its signature distortion. However - if you're using a package such as Lightroom to edit your photos then you can always use lens correction which will to some extent correct the fisheye effect and deliver something super-wide but not so obviously 'fishy'.
I've included some of my early results with this lens.
Olympus cameras give you all the flexibility you need to use this manual lens in the way that suits you. With this angle of view ttl metering needs a degree of intelligence, so exposing for grass or other favourite techniques work well. Just upgraded my seperate incident meter which is ideal for consistent results with ultra wide lenses.
Focus is largely taken care of by carrying printed depth of field tables that give you a clue when you actually need to worry about focussing. A rare occurence except for close ups so not worth worrying about. Focussing is firm but not overly so.
I tend to operate stopped down by a couple of stops.
Whether you think IS is necessary is up to personal needs and experience.
One added benefit is by using the de-fisheye tools included as standard in several photo processing programs you get a standard linear wide angle lens if it works better than a fish eye shot. Really useful on occasion.
Only one significant warning. The lens gives 180 degree coverage on the diagonals - so if you have a hefty handgrip on your camera it is almost impossible to not include the knuckle on your little finger in frame, at least with hands my size. So either no accessory battery grip or be very careful.
The lens is all metal and very well made. The focus and aperture rings are pleasingly stiff with little chance of knocking them out of position during use. There's no hyperfocal markers on the focus scale, but with a lens like this unless your shooting very close up leaving the focus just short of infinity will ensure everything is sharp from less than a meter to infinity even with wide apertures.
IQ is excellent edge to edge, although at very wide apertures it can soften a bit. The ideal range is between f/5.6 and f/8 which gives the best edge to edge performance and a deep depth of field.
The resulting photographs are "full frame fisheye" with 180 degree diagonal field of view (hence the mounting of the camera on my panoramic head). Distrtion is well controlled and recent versions of LR and ACR have a lens profile that will remove the fisheye effect if that's what you want.
All in all a great lens, fantastic image quality and superb value for money. Strongly recommended if you shoot MFT and want / need a fisheye.
I am using it with a Panasonic GH4. The lens has no electronic connections to the camera, so automatic exposure setting is impossible. However, help comes from the A (aperture priority) mode on the GH4 - set the aperture you want to use on the lens, then on the camera click the rear wheel to run the shutter setting up and down. The exposure value gauge will show when you have the correct exposure.
Depth of focus seems good at all apertures, and on the GH4 focus-peaking is very helpful. I haven't checked the lens performance full open - for my purposes f8 is as wide as I need (360º panoramas).
Samyang are to be praised for producing superb optics at a reasonable price - for a specialised lens like this, the lack of electronics is neither here not there.
