Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye II Reviews

An Idiot Uses the Rokinon Fisheye Lens and Loves it.

I wanted to get a fisheye lens for my cannon mirrorless EM50 - a pricey proposition which can end up over a $1000; more like $1,500. I knew that there might be the possibility of a third party lens which would require me to work in manual mode - but that wasn't going to be a problem for me. It would just involve doing a bit of homework on how to make it happen. The tricky thing is that you need to go to manual mode in order to find the correct setting it won't show up in the other setting modes. Then in the camera menu go to Custom Functions and under CF II there is a choice for shutter release when no lens is attached - you want to enable that option and then you should be able to make the lens work. You can still set ISO and shutter speed - the f-stop is set via the lens.

Fun lens for the price

Not for everyone and used only sometimes. Small, light, sharp. Easy to focus since DOF is enormous even at f2.8. Worth every penny.

Before purchasing the Rokinon 8mm fisheye I read numerous reviews about this lens. No surprises, I knew it was a manual lens, and I knew how to use it. It's a perfect fit for my Canon M5 and M3. The only big surprise is how much FUN this lens is to take photos with.   Maybe 180º lens is too much. I keep getting my little finger in the scene when I'm focusing and changing f-stops. Focus is really easier just by setting the distance scale using the focus ring. At f/8 you really don't have to worry about focus anyway. Yes I could write about soft edges at f/2 and other technical stuff, but don't let that bother you. It's plenty sharp. Just set it at f/8 and be there! I can't wait until spring to shoot a few landscapes, nightscapes and big city urbanscapes. A great price for a fun, fun lens.

After using the lens for a few weeks, I think it is a good lens for the price. For most subject the 8mm lens has enough depth of field to produce sharp images without focusing. I find manual focusing to be almost impossible with my Fuji XT30 camera. I would purchase this lens again, it is a lot of fun

good quality lens, camera mount cap not so good

By Louis

The lens itself performed per other reviews .. a good manual fish eye lens. But the included plastic cap for the camera mount end does not fit brand name Sony lenses very well. When swapping lenses, I move the cap to the lens I removed, but the included cap does not fit a Sony lens without force. I replaced the cap with a cheap purchased cap.

Very sharp and huge depth of field

Easy to use, as long as you remember to check for your fingers at the edges of the frame (ha ha). On my Fujifilm X-T3, I set the camera to function with no lens attached, as this lens does not share data with the camera. No worries about lack of autofocus; just set a distance of about 3 feet and everything is sharp. Manual f/stop setting also works out fine. It's small and easy to carry and fun to use. No downside except the lack of EXIF data, which would be nice but not necessary. At this price, who cares.

Does this produce a full circular image on Sony FF cameras or does the circle crop at top and bottom?
Asked by: Erika
This lens only covers a Super 35mm or APS-C sized sensor. It will not cover the sensor on a Full Frame Sony camera, the camera will need to be set to a Cropped Mode.

question

Will this lens vignette on a camera with Super 35mm Sensor? I want to use it with my Sony FS5.
Asked by: Wittwer M.
As this lens is designed for APS-C size sensors, it would not vignette on a super 35mm camera. Super 35 and APS-C are practically the same size.
