    Lensbaby 5.8mm f/3.5 reviews

    5.8mm f/3.5 Circular Fisheye Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super wide fish eye This is a very useful fisheye with about the widest angle available. It will be good for real-reality photos taken in 360 degrees, which is how I plan to use it. It's center sharpness is excellent with little fall-off until you get right to the edge. Some post processing may be required to get rid of the fringe (see photo). It is much better coverage than the lens cap fish eyes but is much larger, which is the real tradeoff, and a little more expensive, but compared to the 8mm fish eye options, it is a bargain. I use it on a 4/3 camera and am very happy with the image quality.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I got the lens to stitch 2 images shot on an Olympus OMD EM5-2 after 180 degree rotation into a VR image, but the pictures I shot were not circular. Top and bottom cropped off. I contacted the manufacturer who told me that was because .it's not a full frame sensor. That should have been made clear in the documentation. I returned the lens - useless! Be forewarned!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I wanted to use this lens for stitched 360 VR images for real estate, For that you need 3 true circular images shot 180 degrees apart, but this lens crops the top & bottom of the image mounted on a micro 4/3 Olympus OMD EM5 II.
