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.

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

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.

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

cant use filter ?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, like many fisheye lenses, you cannot use a filter on the Olympus 8mm f/1.8 lens. That being said, I have taken some amazing shots with it. I have used it at night for long exposures and close ups. Watch your lighting and a lot can be adjusted in Lightroom
