    After a month of use, I can say that having a tiny fisheye on a small camera body has been quite entertaining. This is a solid, tiny, and weightless lens at a great price point.

    First, there is zero need to have an autofocus fisheye, e.g. the more expensive Lumix G 8mm MFT fisheye lens. To be honest, one could almost use this lens blindfolded, just pointing here and there.... there is almost no need to touch the focus ring at all if things are set at just shy of infinity-focus at f/8. It is only with within a foot or two close-ups, or carefully composed scenes that one needs to worry more about fine focus --and a fast autofocus is not going to help with those shots. Not as an aside, the focus ring is smooth as silk on this.

    I like composing architectural shots with complex lines and angles. I have also found that with judicious cropping of images that this also becomes and effective sports/action and street lens. I have submitted an example of both with this review.

    One caveat: I have a Lumix G1 camera body. It has more of a grip (similar to that on the Lumix GH1, GH2, and G2) than the Olympus and most of the other Panasonics. Because this lens is so small and *shallow*, and because it has a 180 degree field of view...it is easy to accidently capture one's knuckles in the frame if overt caution is not employed. I dont imagine that such was ever an issue before, i.e. on bulky lenses on a full frame camera body.

    NOT SHARP ENOUGH

    I shot about 40 photos over two days-- close ups, mid-range and longer. But I couldn't get photos that were sharp enough. So I had to return the unit.

    It might be OK if you are happy with 4x6 prints.

              Bought this as a less expensive approach to superwide videos on my GH4. Also to be used at large festival in Atlanta this week and the Albuquerque Balloon Fest in a few weeks. Never had a fisheye befoe but very impressed with how well it works with my GH4. Very light and so far the quality seems to be excellent.

              I recently used this little baby on a low budget film with de BMPCC and it was really nice. It`s a very good replacement for the Cinema Lens of the same brand, maybe at a cost of one step of aperture.

              For the size of the sensor, this a great chance to have long shots.

                    This lens is sharp even in it's extreme corners. Even though this Fish Eye Lens distorts in able to capture a full 180 degrees the sharpness across the frame will allow you to re-align without distortion in post processing and still be super sharp. So it can be two lenses, a Fish Eye in the field or ,through processing, an ultra wide. At first I thought I would use it occasionally but once it's mounted on the camera I see new opportunities to utilize this fantastic, creative inspiring marvel of optics!

                      Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 Ultra Wide-Angle Fisheye Lens for Micro 4/3 (Black):

                      This lens is a joy and a delight! The build and quality are really decent.

                      Because of the nature of this lens (it's convex, i.e., it bubbles out), you can't add a layer of protection with a UV lens filter. That said, they considerately built in the petal-type lens hood to protect it from knocks.

                      These are some of the benefits of the fish-eye wideness and distortion that I learned to appreciate after a day of using it:

                      Very little issues with focus - if the subject is more than a few feet away, it will likely be in good focus.
                      Shooting pictures or video in structured or architectural environments - seeing those straight lines warping has really given my imagery a breath of fresh air.
                      Video - moving through space and past people, trees, architecture etc. really is something else - like floating in a bubble or seeing the world through a dreamy, child-like perspective. It's not as hackneyed as I imagined it might be.

                      Put some fun back in your photography or video-making with this little beauty.

                              This works great, I'd been used to filming with a VX1000 and a Century Optics ultra fisheye for about 14 years, and recently upgraded to HD, Picked up a Panasonic GH2. I'm still getting used to it, and was worried that the fish eye wouldn't be as good as the ultra fish eye, but it's been great so far. I'm impressed. Definitely recommend this product.

                                Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 Ultra Wide-Angle Fisheye Lens for Micro 4/3 (Black):

                                The Samyang/Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens has got impressively good optical properties. This makes it a good alternative to the Panasonic Lumix G 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens, at a lower cost. You'll have to focus manually, though, which is quite easy for objects far away. When photographing close objects, though, it takes somewhat more effort to use the Samyang lens.I think the Lumix lens generally gives better colours. But this is a subjective matter, of course. As the Lumix lens is quite expensive, the Samyang lens is a good alternative, if you can live with using manual focus. The optical properties are certainly very good.All in all, the Samyang/Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens is a very good lens, and provides good value for money. If you want to try a fisheye lens, it is a good choice.Most difficult thing when using this lens is keeping your fingers out of the frame!!

                                      What nice little lens. No auto-focus but really not needed. Very cool images with this lens and my Oly OMD em-5.

                                        I have had a blast with this lens since the moment I got it. You've heard the old saying, "you get what you pay for!", well at this price, you get more. It's a manual focus lens but, I dial in f5.6-8, set focus to infinity, and shoot away. You can fumble to get the focus sharper but I believe you'll be happy with what you get. It's fantastic in well lit situations and when there's not much light. I got some very interesting shots last 4TH of the kids with the fireworks. I sat up till 2am this morning shooting thunderstorms passing over the house with it. It's a lot of fun. When I usually buy a lens I am pleased if it just meets my expectations, due to the price, and I've been disappointed on more than one occasion. I smile every time I mount this lens. One last thing, be sure that you adjust your "IS" setting for the focal length. If you don't you will get a shaky image stabilizer, I guess that's an oxymoron. Just dial the "IS" down to "8mm" and shoot away. The default setting on the Olympus is "50mm". It performs great on the OMD, EPL5, and the EPM1 using the methods I've discussed here. You're going to love it, I do, can't you tell. Happy shooting.

                                          When I realized I could use,this lens for 360 degree panos, I had to pick one up. Not having auto focus isn't a big deal, as for my use, I'm focusing almost to infinity. I use this lens at f5.6, and its very sharp from corner to corner.

                                            Wow, what a perspective. Focus is critical. You must set your camera to magnify the image to guarantee it is focused. Best results with horizon or zero elevation line in center of shot. Sides will still be bent, but when you have to photograph a very wide expanse this is the best and most practical choice. You probably won't be using it often, unless playing around with extreme close ups (which have less depth of field than I expected). Watch out, your feet or fingers might just make it into the picture. Lens cap works well and the lens bag is durable. Enjoy! Smilin' Ed

                                                  I shot about 40 photos over two days-- close ups, mid-range and longer. But I couldn't get photos that were sharp enough. So I had to return the unit.

                                                  It might be OK if you are happy with 4x6 prints.

                                                  Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 Ultra Wide-Angle Fisheye Lens for Micro 4/3 (Black):

                                                  I use this lens for stills and video, and I've never had any issues. You'll get a very stylized look which can be applied in almost any situation for dramatic or comedic effect. Be careful of getting your hands in the shot when you first use the lens, it's wider than you think. Only complaint: The focus ring is very stiff. It takes a lot of pressure to turn, which can slow things down if you're in a hurry, or need to follow focus if doing video. That's a very minor complaint, and it might even loosen up over time,. Overall I am extremely happy with the lens and would recommend it to everyone.
