Light, incredibly inexpensive, Olympus quality , which can be carried in your pockets and give you wide angle capability without the extra bulk or weight when you want to go out light.

... this lens delivers. And you can't beat the price. But it's the 35mm equivalent of an 18mm lens - not a true fisheye - and you're stuck with a single aperture - F8. Moreover, focusing is limited and the optical performance lags behind my Rokinon 8mm. So it ain't for everybody. Just the same, I'm having a great time with this lens.

Good Value for Low Cost Fisheye

Just used my newly purchased Olympus fisheye on a photo outing to Brooklyn NY. Performed well in good lighting with some vignetting which can be corrected in post processing. Great little lens to take along for some fun fisheye photos.

As light and compact as they come.

Perfect fish-eye wide angle for traveling light without sacrificing wide angle capability.

Wow!

Really amazing quality. I thought it was bad until I read the instructions and realized it has a focusing switch you must set. Now it's amazing for the size and cost.

question

does this come with a cap to cover the front element, or is it just left exposed??
Asked by: Anonymous
There is no need for a lens cap since the manual focus lever also acts as a protective cover for the elements when moved to the closed position.

question

Is this lens compatible with the BMPCC? Is the sensor of the BMPCC fully covered?
Asked by: Berend R.
This lens covers a MFT sensor. The diagonal of an MFT sensor is 21.64 mm. The diagonal of the BMPCC Super 16 sensor is 14.33mm. I say you are good.

question

The minimum focus distance is .2 meter. Is that from the front of the lens or the sensor plane?
Asked by: Glen G.
As others have stated - minimum focusing distance is measured from the film or sensor plane. Someone else said they would not recommend because the lens has a lot of distortion - that's true - but that is actually a characteristic of fisheye lenses - and it is actually why people buy such lens in the first place - for creative effect.
