Opteka 6.5mm f/3.5 overview

  • 1Description

Offering a truly expansive 180° angle of view, the 6.5mm f/3.5 Circular Fisheye Lens from Opteka is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, and provides a 10.4mm equivalent focal length. The unique fisheye design produces exaggerated, distorted perspectives, which can be creatively used in conjunction with the short 11.8" minimum focusing distance. One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to limit spherical aberrations and a multi-layer lens coating has been applied to lessen lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, a removable petal-shaped lens hood is also included for further flare reduction and protection to the front element.

This 6.5mm f/3.5 circular fisheye lens is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, where it provides a 10.4mm equivalent focal length.
Extremely broad 180° angle of view produces an exaggerated perspective and creative distortion.
One aspherical element is utilized to reduce spherical aberrations and maintain consistent illumination and sharpness from edge to edge.
Removable petal-shaped lens hood and multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design and a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" pairs with the expansive fisheye field of view for generating unique perspectives with immense depth of field.
Aluminum-alloy lens mount offers a rigid interface between the lens and camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's a fish eye :) I have the Rebel T5 and it locks on fine. Unlocking it, it has the tendency to over turn so you need to make sure you only turn the 90 degrees or so to pop the lens off. Otherwise its pretty good for the little Rebel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a fun lens to play with it takes a bit to get used to but is a fun lens to use for a special shot now and then. I don't use it often but it gives an interesting view of the world at the right location

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for 360 virtual tours Love it, perfect for 360 virtual tours It does have lots of chromatic aberration on the edges on full frame

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good lens at a low price I bought this lens because I have always wanted to play with a fisheye lens, and for all-sky imaging for astronomy. And it is fun for shooting both interior and exterior photos. It is all manual, and the image is rather hard to see when stopped down. On my Canon 60Da (with an APS-C sensor) the diagonal of the frame spans about 180 degrees, so you do not get a circular image. Star testing at f/3.5 shows the lens produces reasonably tight star images, with some flare on bright stars and some astigmatism on one side of the image. This suggests one or more lens elements inside the lens are slightly off center or tilted. The best focus for star images is not infinity, but something like 5 meters. The lens performs well enough to keep; I like the lens and can use it, but I am not thrilled with its performance.
