        Comments about Bower 8mm f/2.8 Ultra Compact Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount (Black):

        This is a high quality lens that I have used with a Nodal Ninja 3 on my Sony a6000 to create 360 panoramas. Great quality lens with a solid manual focus ring that won't shift easily. Used it for some great classic fun fisheye shots of family and friends as well. Perfect size for the a6000.

        Only used it a little so far, but it seems to be getting the shots I want. In a few weeks I'll be hiking, that will be the true test of this lens.

          Comments about Bower 8mm f/2.8 Ultra Compact Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount (Black):

          Smal, lightweight, amazingly sharp, contrasty, well saturated- what else I need from the very affordable priced unique lens ?
          I love it and use a lot, sometimes I getting images defished with "Fisheye Hemi" sometimes not but I enjoy every session with it.
          As soon as it's ultra-wide angle lens the dept of field allowed you not much worry about tack focus, however I'd like to have DOF scale on the lens and considering it's my only complain to Samyang!
          Samyang! We love YOU!!!

            Already owning the m43 edition of this lens, I was excited to see Samyang build one for the NEX mount and brighter to boot!

            Only complaint is you can focus a fair bit beyond infinity, for what purpose is beyond me. But worth every penny, well built and a champ of a lens.
