Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT Lens - Black

You Pay: $239.00
Product Highlights
  • Ultra Wide-Angle Manual Lens
  • Designed for Micro Four Thirds System
  • 180º Diagonal Angle of View
  • Budget-friendly and Well-designed

The 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT Lens from Samyang - Black is the first model in a new series of Samyang lenses designed specifically for the Micro Four Thirds system of cameras. Compact and with superior optics it is compatible with any micro four thirds mount. Providing a 180º angle of view, this lens is ideal for shooting panoramic vistas and for stitching together sweeping full 360º views. It is perfect for exploring the creativity of wide-angle lenses by distorting and exaggerating normal perspectives and with its large depth of field, it's a great lens for close-up shots and fun portraits. The built-in petal shaped lens hood provides some protection for the lens but more so, assures that glare and flare stay out of your photographs. Samyang will be introducing more lenses for micro four thirds cameras, but this simple, affordable lens offers a great option for MFT users to explore their world from a fisheye perspective.

      3rd fisheye I've used, and maybe best

        Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT Lens - Silver:

        I have been using fisheye lenses for over 10 years, starting with a 16mm full-frame one for film Nikons. I have taken thousands of shots with a 10.5mm Nikon DX fisheye lens, and added this lens as my 3rd MFT lens. So far I have used it for landscapes and architectural shots. Since it is a fully manual lens, I use aperture priority mode, set the lens on f5.6 and focus it at where I guess the hyperfocus distance is just below infinity. It is very sharp and color rendering seems excellent. Matrix metering does not work well due to the large angle of view (I use center-weight or spot). My only complaint is that indicated focal distance jumps from 0.25 meters to infinity, which makes setting hyperfocus distance a guess.

        Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT Lens - Black:

        I just spent a few hours shooting with this around my house, and I love it. It's reasonably sharp, got a huge field of view, and is a fun lens to have on hand.

        It's very old-school. Manual focus, manual aperture, and no information sent back to the camera. Either I had to be in full manual, or my camera (Olympus E-P2) handled exposure by adjusting the ISO automatically.

              This lens is awesome. Period. If you have been considering getting a fisheye on MFT, just get this lens. It is SO amazing for the money.If you are nervous about manual focus, do not fret! With such a wide angle lens, you get a huge depth of field without trying. I set mine around f/5.6 and pull the focus just a tiny bit before infinity and everything from a meter or two away to infinity is sharp.

                Great lens. If you are looking for a high quality fisheye look no further. This thing is sharp, well built, and delivers beautiful high contrast images. Don't worry that its only manual focus and aperture. Just shoot in A or M modes. I also program a fn. button on my OMD to zoom in on a selected area so manual focus is painless. Most shots are at infinity anyways. One negative to mention, I do not like the lens cap. It's tough to find correct position for it to click on and it's leaves permanent marks on the silver finish of the built in lens hood. Otherwise, this lens is pretty flawless. For the price it's a great buy.

                I am a loss adjuster and surveyor and use (amongst oters)an Olympus OMD E-M5 camera for work and leisure. For showing large expanses of production halls, buildings etc. I find this lens very useful - both at work as well as for tourism, where it allows expansive internal building photos (with the high ISO available in the OMD, with very good results!). Your service in sending and supplying the lesns was exemplery - it arrived perfectliy packed within the three days you stated - much appreciated!

                  Comments about 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT Lens - Black:

                  I have been looking at the following Fisheye lens in the m43rds format:
                  Pany Fisheye
                  Pany Fisheye converter for 14mm
                  Samyang Fisheye

                  The converter makes the 14mm about an 11mm, which isn't as wide as the Samyang at 7.5mm, and the Samyang is much cheaper than the Pany Fisheye (nearly half the cost), so in terms of performance to cost, this Samyang is easily the best value for the m43rds format so far.

                  Immediate impression upon getting the lens is that it's extremely well made and solid for such a tiny lens. Comes with a lens pouch which is nice (hello Olympus...).

                  Pics taken so far have been terrific and this lens is a lot of fun. Set it at about f5.6 and everything is sharp. It can be used for shooting in low/dim light conditions, but I recommend setting it up on a tripod to get the very best out of it.

                  Furthermore, this fisheye helps to fill a gap in my lens kit. I have been looking for an ultra-wide angle lens, and all of the current ones available are really pricy (but worth it too I think). By getting this lens and "defishing" the pics (Hugin Freeware), I have by all accounts a pretty inexpensive ultra-wide angle lens for landscape photography (I would still prefer the Pany 7-14mm, but that's nearly 3 times the cost of this lens...)

                  The only drawback that I can see for people getting this lens is that it's a manual focus lens (much like the Canon FD legacy lenses that I use so you have to shoot in manual mode "without lens"), but I don't have any issues with that and I find it a pleasure to be able to manually adjust my aperature where I want it anyways.

                    I use this little lens on a Oly Epl1 and on a Pany G1 with really pleasing results. Lots of fun to just play around with, just don't forget to change the focus if your getting up close to your subject. Works very well for senics, has very nice color, a bit on the warm side but I like that. Takes in a whole lot of landscape just be careful with alignment or use the curve of the lens for different effects. I shoot with the aperature set to f8 and the camera on aperature prefered, seems to be a good outdoor all around setting. I would recommend this lens.
