Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The black Canon EF-M mount Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens is a prime fisheye lens specifically designed for APS-C sized image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12.8mm and full 180° angle of view, this lens is well-suited for creative applications as well as interior and architectural subjects. Its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions.

Three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion in order to produce sharper images. Additionally, the lens' design features a built-in lens hood and a UMC coating has been applied to the lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.

180° fisheye lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12.8mm, making it ideally suited for interior and architectural subjects.

Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 reviews

8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens for Canon EF-M Mount (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens -- Super Value Found this lens to be super sharp even at f2.8. Although the lens is completely manual with regard to aperture and focus, found it very easy to use. Manual focus is not an issue with a lens this wide, can leave it set at infinity for most shots. Exposure is not completely manual, set your camera to aperture priority, set the lens to the desired f stop, and the camera will automatically set the correct shutter speed for perfect exposure. Very happy with results from my first outing, check the attached sample photos. Priced the way it is, i don't think there is a better super wide option option out there. This lens has added a whole new level of creative possibilities to my compact camera system

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid value with sharp results: Canon EOS M3 gem This lens is for the budget minded manual shooter with experience or learning photographer that is willing to get the result they need with a bit more added work to learn and be proficient with all manual controls. 5 stars primarily for its sharp results and sturdy reassuring build quality with metal throughout its construction and a solid feel in hand. Its touch heavier than anticipated by a few ounces for the weight conscious backpacker photographer however you probably won't find a lens significantly lighter then this. I purchased this as my wide angle option for my Canon EOS M3 and it works as needed and with the results you would expect. This is a fantastic option if you don't want to pay more than you did for the M3 body with purchase of a larger mount Sigma or equivalent fisheye. If your Canon EOS M3 body is factory fresh and you have not made any adjustments to the camera - the camera's shutter won't release as there are no electronics in this lens. You can take a photo you just need to make an adjustment hidden in the menu system. You MUST do the following: Go to MENU click right to the THIRD tab. Select: C.Fn III: Others > Release shutter w/o lens > select 1:Enable This lens provides a very sharp image even into the corners and very fast for its price point. When adjusting iris the lens has solid detents with feedback that gives reassurance you made it to the next one but didn't go too far. The manual focus ring has a solid amount of resistance when turning which I appreciate more than if it were too easy to turn. Requires much more effort to adjust focus then any other Canon lens I have used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Love that lens! highly recommended... (+) Excellent build (+) Precision ring, much better than the Canon lenses (+) Good performance on low light conditions (-) lack of autofocus but I knew that and actually I am not sure you need this on a fish-eye. Price/value is a no-brainer in my opinion! You can buy it eyes-closed...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rokinon 8mm Fisheye- great addition for M3 users Manual focus not an issue with a short lens. Good resolution. Can get within inches of subject. Extra wide angle is a great effect for some scenes. Small and light. Well made. No 8mm lightroom profile as of yet - used 14 mm profile to flatten effect when desired. Used on AV makes it easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens! This is the third Rokinon lens that I have purchased. For the money, they just can't be beat! They are of very good quality and the imagery is second to none. If you can live without autofocus, you won't regret this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for the quality! Great value for an excellent product! Easy to focus and great quality photos every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent At Any Price. The Rokinon 8mm Fisheye II Lens is a very sharp, easy to use lens with outstanding image quality. It is a fully manual lens, however, on my Canon EOS M3 camera, the lens has such a wide depth of field, it is almost always in focus at any aperture. Focus peaking built into the camera easily confirms focus. A fun lens to use and highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great manual lens. I use this on the EOS-M3. It provides a great sharp image, low chromatic aberration. You do need to be careful with exposure as there is no AE with the lens. But for the price, it served my purpose well.
