Just Another Olympus Pro Lens
The Olympus ED 8mm Pro fisheye lens is another typical Oly Pro lens- Solid, well-built, well-performing. Despite the very short focal length, it is really nice to have auto-focus. That makes it possible to get some subject isolation for very close subjects without having to focus manually. Of course, the fast aperture helps. The image is nicely sharp with good contrast and color correction. In-camera (EM-1 Mark 3) fisheye correction works, but it does degrade the edges and corners because of the image stretching required to get the rectilinear look. Mild correction works well, but more severe correction does cause edge and corner softening. As a fisheye, the lens works as advertised and expected for its Pro designation.
Great compact Fisheye
I used to use an older 4/3 Fisheye with an adapter for my OMD EM1 but this is so much more compact and lighter while being faster. Perfect for bringing around as it doesn't take up a lot of space.
A GREAT LENS!
All I can say is WOW! Using it with EM1X, Just a super lens!
