Product Highlights
  • 185° Circular View
  • Fixed Aperture

The Sunex 5.6mm f/5.6 SuperFisheye Lens is a super-wide fisheye lens that covers 185°, with enough overlap to create a full spherical image from just two shots. This lens was designed specifically for digital SLR cameras using APS-C format imagers. With an image circle size of 14.5mm, the SuperFisheye forms a complete circular image within the camera's imager area.

The fixed focus and fixed aperture design of this lens provides optimized image quality for both indoor and outdoor photography. The fixed aperture also simplifies the operation of the lens, and eliminates potential errors.

It is especially well suited for virtual reality and software-assisted panorama stitching. It provides exaggerated perspectives and unusual distortion effects. Sunex also provides a link to a free download of the Dewarper Plug-In software for Photoshop (PC only). Dewarper is a software plug-in for correcting or optimizing distortion taken with popular fisheye lenses, including Sunex SuperFisheye lenses. This program is based on a proprietary algorithm developed by Sunex based on expertise in real-world lens design and manufacturing.

The optional Panoramic Rotator (#SUR3S) is designed exclusively for the SuperFisheye lens, to achieve precise lens rotation about its nodal point. It eliminates the need to determine the location of the nodal point for each lens/camera manually. It has 3 detent positions at 120 degree each.
Made of anodized aluminum with laser-etched markings.

          Excellent DSLR fisheye

              Very good lens for a great price.

              As it covers 185 deg. you could get away with two shots for a 360 pano but taking 3 shots (best on the 3 stops Sunex rotator) gives you full peace of mind.

              Of course it could be an f/1.4 lens but then we would live in a perfect world ;)

              Comments about Sunex 5.6mm f/5.6 SuperFisheye Fixed Focus Lens for Nikon Digital SLR:

              I use the fisheye for 360° immersive imaging together with a Nikon D100. The Pictures become nice and really high resolved. Only at the edges it sometimes blurs a little bit... but overall it is a great alternative to Nikon or Sigma lenses.

              Very cool images, great dewarping software. Lens is rugged and well built. Only issue I had was the 1.5mm screws that must be loosened to adjust focus were locked and unadjustable.
