      Comments about Rokinon 8mm Ultra Wide Angle f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount Cameras:

      I am a not so expirient photographer so it could be I misunderstand things, bought this for fun and have used it a lot, I love these strange pictures a fisheye makes and play with the camera to get those result
      - the buildt quality is more than suffisient, no problem at all, operation and mounting is exellent

      - the lens is bigger than I imagined and a bit heavy which I do not like, the balance gets a bit wrong

      - even in strong sun light and with a high aperature, f/22 etc there seems to be some strange coulors around items far away
      - also, I may misunderstnd or something but it is like the camera, sony nex5r, is contra adjust (iso?) when I adjust the aperature, the camera have no information about setting of the lens

        Comments about Rokinon 8mm Ultra Wide Angle f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount Cameras:

        The image quality was better that I had expected for a lens so inexpensive. If it's a fisheye lens is what you would I recommend this one. Even though it's manual focus (a fisheye lens has a wide range of depth of field especially at f8 to f 22) is not an issue.

          Comments about Rokinon 8mm Ultra Wide Angle f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount Cameras:

          I bought this for use on the Sony NEX-VG20. With a mount specific to the NEX it's a perfect match. Aperture and focus are manuel on this lens and with the VG20 you'll have to mind your distance on the focus ring if doing close-up filming as it's tough to tell when out of focus. Mostly when outdoors I'm using infinity. This lens gives a great 180 deg. view and if you aren't careful you'll film your feet a lot, but it's tube is long enough to clear the permanently mounted microphone on the VG20 which was an issue using other short-bodied fisheye lenses. For the price, I like this lens a lot.

                For the price this lens can't be beat. It has a very wide angle to it so getting the manual focus right can be tricky as the camera show almost everything over 10' away as focused. Very fast and great aperture range,

                  I always wanted a fisheye lens but could never justify the price especially considering it is not a daily use lens
                  This lens solves both concerns
                  Excellent performance considering the modest price when compared to oem lenses
                  Fits the camera ( Sony nex5n) very well

                    First, I live on the prairie. Our world is visually horizontal. After fifty years of shooting without a fisheye lense, I am discovering a whole new world of dimension and having fun doing it. This lense is sharp, color depth is vivid and it works great on my Sony NEX 5n.

                    Unbeatable for the price.

                      I would have done five stars but it's manual. I love this lens. Very much fun making boring images take on interesting compositions. Sharpness and color is great. Flare one has to watch out for on something so wide but you get the hang of it. This is an excellent value. Don't stop at the Sony add on. It's not bad but this is so much better and $ more than the Sony add on.
