How does this compare to the rokinon 7.5mm. I shoot a lot of interiors and correcting the fisheye can get annoying. Is the sharpness on pair with the 7.5mm fisheye lenses? I alway shoot on a tripod and usually am at F5.6 or F8
Asked by: Kevin
The main differences between these lenses are feature-based. The SLR Magic 8mm f/4 is slightly less bright in low light and a bit longer in length versus the Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye. Also, the SLR Magic offers a larger knurled focus ring for easier use with a follow focus system.

Does it work with lumix gh4

Does it work with lumix gh4
Asked by: Anonymous
Any micro four-thirds should be OK with this lens. It is a manual lens, so focus and aperture are manually set on the lens. The camera will select shutter speed once you set aperture. Depth of field is huge with an 8mm focal length lens, so focussing is not so exacting as a longer focal length lens tends to be. Many examples of image quality of this lens here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/MixEOF

The SLR Magic 8mm f/4 looks like a modified C-Mount lens but the Kowa 6mm f/1.8 has a wider field of view and is sharper.

question

Will this lens fit the Olympus EM-10 Mark ii?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, it is made for any Micro 4/3 mount camera. As long as you can tell the camera to shoot without a lens (no electronic contacts on this lens), the camera won't have an issue.

question

Will this work with the sony FS5 with an adapter?
Asked by: Martin R.
Yes, there are MFT to E mount adapters out there (I have one; VERY slim). You'll need to use Clear Zoom to crop into the usable portion of the image, as the lens barely covers an MFT sensor.

question

Will it fit on the Sony A7R 2?
Asked by: Anonymous
You will need an adapter, and you will be cropping very heavily. The final image will probably be around 12MP.
