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.

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

Does it smell like fish?
Asked by: Alberto V.
Actually, it smells like a fish eye, not as fishy as fish skin or fish innards. Only real corneas go into the making of this quality lens.

question

How is this shooting 4k, let's say on a LUMIX G7?
Asked by: Kevin
Kind of a vague question. I mean, it works just fine. It's a manual, fisheye lens. Not much else to say. 4k or not, it's only an f8 and on a small sensor. Pretty much worthless indoors unless you have a bright studio setup. I'm happy to play around with it and give the results if you have some specific questions or scenarios. I just bought it as a cheap backup/toy lens. So far I've not really ever needed to get it out of the bag.
