      Comments about Samyang 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Nikon:

      Dernièrement je jonglais avec l'idée de me procurer un UGA mais, le prix m'en empêchait, surtout que ce n'était que pour mon plaisir.Suite à la lecture de plusieurs revues sur le Samyang 8 mm, j'ai décidé de faire le saut et j'avoue bien m'amuser depuis. Il y a une question d'adaptation mais, une fois cette étape passée, que du pur plaisir. Je ne peux comparer avec un objectif UGA "Pro" mais, il répond à mes besoins et mes attentes, bref il me satisfait pleinement.

        Comments about Samyang 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Nikon:

        I live in Alaska and shoot a lot of aurora pictures, and my 12-24 wasn't quite wide enough. Several friends were using an 8mm fisheye, so I decided to try the Samyang and it is a great lens at a very affordable price.

        Awesome lens for the money

              Comments about Samyang 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Nikon:

              I rarely need to use a fish eye but there are times when there is so much going on in a scene that an ultra wide lens just doesn't get everything you want in the frame. This fish eye lens coupled with Fisheye Hemi program allows you to do just that without the super fishy look. As long as the objects are 6 feet in front of you, you can get some amazingly unique shots.

              I recommend this lens over the older version that doesn't allow you to remove the hood because its sharper. I absolutely love that this lens doesn't flare or ghost very easily. Lock this lens at f8 - f11 and never look back.
