Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye ... Overview

Pairing an expansive 180° angle of view with a fast maximum aperture, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO from Olympus is a Micro Four Thirds system lens offering a 16mm equivalent focal length to produce unique perspectives and creative distortions. A sophisticated optical design uses a variety of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements to control a variety of aberrations in order to realize a high degree of sharpness and clarity and a ZERO lens coating has been applied to improve contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, this fisheye lens also sports a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) AF system that is quick and quiet, and has a weather-resistant construction to suit working in inclement weather conditions.

Ultra-wide fisheye lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, covers the full area of the rectangular image sensor, and provides a 16mm equivalent focal length.
Fisheye design renders a 180° angle of view to produce a distinct visual appeal characterized by dramatic distortion and a creative depiction of space.
Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult and low-light conditions.
The lens construction integrates one aspherical element, three Super ED (extra-low dispersion) elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, one Super HR (high refractive index) element, and two HR elements into its design to minimize aberrations, distortion, and color fringing while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.
A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Dust, splash, and freezeproof construction ensures this lens' performance in inclement conditions and harsh environments.
Minimum focusing distance of 4.7" pairs with a 0.4x equivalent maximum magnification for photographing close-up subjects with an exaggerated perspective.

can I use this on a lumix g7 ?

can I use this on a lumix g7 ?
Asked by: diane
It will work fine on a G7, though it is a lot heavier(it weighs more than my Nikon 16mm full frame fisheye) and cost considerably more than the Panasonic option. I use it on a G85 with a battery grip attached and it balances ok. Its advantage is its bright aperture and it can focus ridiculously close to a subject, plus the build quality is absolutely first class. I've always liked the unique look of a fisheye lens for still photos.

question

Is the hood on the M.Zuiko 8mm removable?
Asked by: Joseph
The hood, like many fish-eye lens hood, is not removable. It is there permanently to maximize protection to the bulbous, vulnerable, and expensive-to-replace front element.

question

If you use the fisheye compensation function on the EM1 mark II with the 8mm fisheye, do you get a raw file or a jpeg image while shooting raw.
Asked by: Keith
The settings are independent, and all options are in play. When shooting raw, you get only raw, and fisheye compensation is ignored. When shooting jpeg, you can turn fisheye compensation on or off. When shooting raw + jpeg, fisheye compensation applies to the jpeg only.

question

I currently own the Olympus 7-14mm f:2.8. Except for being (approximately) 1 stop faster, can anyone comment on the quality difference between the two lenses (when the 7-14 is at 8mm)?
Asked by: Lawrence B.
This is a horses for courses question. The two lenses serve different purposes. The 8mm is smaller, lighter (315g vs. 534g), and closer focusing (12 cm vs. 20 cm). You just have to look at galleries to decide which lens fits your picture style.

question

Does the OM-D E-M5 (not E-M5 II) provide chromatic aberration correction for the Olympus 8mm f1.8 lens? One review from last year says the E-M5 II does, but not the older E-M5. Though there has been a firmware update which might have included this capability.
Asked by: Scott S.
I have been using this on a G9. Images have no chromatic aberration.
