The Madoka 180 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount from Yasuhara is a 7.3mm circular fisheye lens specifically designed for Sony NEX E-mount cameras. Called the Madoka, which means round in old Japanese, the lens offers a 180º angle of view and is the first compact mirrorless camera lens to provide circular fisheye images. The lens itself is very compact and fits well on even the smallest of the NEX cameras, maintaining their portable nature. Yasuhara is developing software that will seamlessly convert this lens' circular images into a square format image with the angular distortion removed, if this is what you desire. The Madoka 180 lens offers a great opportunity to explore the creative possibilities of wide angle shooting with Sony NEX mirrorless cameras.

      Comments about Yasuhara Madoka 180 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount:

      Does not work well with the Sony NEX-VG10/20. This lens is similar to looking through a doors wide angle "peep hole". Its fisheye view was so wide and the lens is so compact that it picked up the microphone on the VG20 camera. Since the microphone is a permanent fixture on the VG20 this lens did not work for me. It did fit readily to the E-mount without a problem.

      Comments about Yasuhara Madoka 180 Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount:

      Circular fisheyes are a usually a mixed bag, but this one is surprisingly nice. It's very sharp at the center and actually reasonably sharp in at the edges of the circle too. That isn't something that I can say about many others – especially not at this price. Although it's not too hard to focus (using magnification), it's safe to scale focus unless your subject is fairly close.

      The lens is well built with firm clicks at full stops on the aperture ring. It is surprisingly small and lightweight. The best part, though, is that it produces a nicely centered, fully circular image, without the tops or bottoms getting cropped off.

      There are two slight negatives, though. The focus ring isn't dampened much at all, so it is easy to inadvertently change the focus distance. Also, the unique lens cap fits a bit loosely. I nearly lost mine on the first day out with the lens.

      Otherwise I'm very happy using this lens with my Nex 7.
