      Excellent Value

      Comments about Samyang 8mm f/2.8 Fish-eye Lens for Fujifilm X-mount (Black):

      Normally fish-eye lens are an expensive addition to a photographers kit and considering that it will be used infrequently hard to justify. The Samyang 8mm is therefore very welcome. I have used the lens on my new Fujifilm X-T1 with good results. Excellent build quality. Since it does not communicate with the camera's electronics, you have to use as a manual lens, not difficult considering anything over about 8 feet away will be in focus. Lens hood not detachable, good on a fish-eye lens, with the lens cap attaching to the hood. If you are looking for a fish-eye lens for a X series camera, this is the one.

        Surprisingly well built and SOLID. Manual focus is very easy due to the short focal length. Very fisheye so make sure that's what you're after.

        Comments about Samyang 8mm f/2.8 Fish-eye Lens for Fujifilm X-mount (Black):

        Easy to use lens. Fantastic quality. My only issue is that it's almost too flush to the camera, and my finger will sometimes enter bottom right edge of the frame. I'd give it 4 stars but the price is too good for what you end up getting. So 5 it is.

        The focusing ring is a bit stiff and a long way around. But fortunately because of the great optics and the wide angle you don't have to worry too much about the focus.

        Definitely worth the money if you want a wide angle for your x-mount.

                  Comments about Samyang 8mm f/2.8 Fish-eye Lens for Fujifilm X-mount (Black):

                  Well-built, appears to be mostly metal. Plastic hood is strong and permanent, and the lens cap fits well over the top of this hood, making storage worry-free. The lens is quite small, just slightly smaller than the x-mount Fuji 35mm F1.4.
                  This is fully manually operated, there is no auto aperture or autofocus, but these things are easily accomplished manually when using the lens on the Fuji X-E1.
                  Image quality is very good, and details are quite clear when focusing is exactly right. Generally with this very short focal length the focusing is not as critical as one might guess. There are some software add-ons available (from third parties) which remove or reduce the fish-eye distortion, making it a wide-wide angle lens instead of a fisheye, but the software is not always effective. No software comes with this lens.
                  The instruction pamphlet is well-written too.

                  The lens is really sharp, either at f2.8 or 8 and up. Surprised with the clarity. And for the price, well worth it. Terrific in tight corners and some landscape shoots. I purchased the lens to do some self pics of me and my girl while on vacation in Maui. Perfect for any situation without a tripod.
