    Comments about Samyang 8mm Ultra Wide Angle f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha Mount:

    Build quality seems fine. Infinite focus is actually at about 2'. Distance actually gets blurrier if you focus past that. 5.6F gives about the sharpest result. I leaveit at 1.5' to 2' focus and everything is sharp. Great depth of field, needless to say.
    It's an all manual lens so you have to tell your camera that. After that's done, just leave it on P or A setting and the camera sets the shutter speed and all is fine.
    Lot of fun to use and performance exceeds expectations for the price.
