With an expansive 190° angle of view, the 7.5mm f/2.8 II Fisheye Lens for FUJIFILM X from 7artisans is an all-manual lens capable of producing unique perspectives and creative distortions. The lens's f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions while maintaining a small and lightweight form factor for handheld shooting. The optimized 11-element, 9-group features a higher refractive index is used in the front glass group, while the rear group of optical glass is crafted from HOYA ED glass, which effectively reduces chromatic aberration, while improving image quality when compared to the original lens design. Multi-layer coatings have been applied to individual glass elements to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens has an all-metal body and features a built-in petal-shaped lens hood to help reduce flare while protecting the front element.

Good lens for EOS-M at a great price
I am using this lens on my M-3 with the EVF-DC1 finder. It pushes the boundaries when the 11-22 is just not wide enough. I also have a pair of M-5s and thought I would put it on one of them but since I wear glasses the DC1 finder allows me to see the level and focus zebras which is most important for this fisheye. I am posting a selfie I took in my painting studio using the wireless remote, note the distortion, it works for me.
You save about $600 using this. works great. nice & compact. Unless you have $$ to burn, manuals the way to go.
Bad Copy of the Lens ??
I believe that I received a defective copy of this lens so I won't bash it to smithereens. ********** I expected that the lens would have a wide depth of field (DOF) where most everything would be in focus. Just the opposite! Most of the time I got terribly out of focus photos. This happened at every focus line on the lens barrel, in several photo modes (A, S, and P), and two apertures (f/5.6 and f/8). Studying my photos, I can't identify what the camera is focusing on! ********** I owned fisheye lenses and very wide angle lenses before, but never experienced this strange and elusive depth of field phenomenon.
GREAT FOR THE PRICE
Moor than worth the price.
A great, inexpensive addition to my gear...
I've only had this lens for a few weeks now, but it's really gotten some good usage. I do a lot of Event photography and, while I like my Nikon ZFc coupled with the 16-50mm Nikon lens, I've wished many times for a lens that was a bit wider....and now...I have this 7.5MM addition. I've never been a big fan of the circular images of 'normal' fisheye lenses, but this rectilinear lens can easily 'pass' as just another wide angle lens. The fact that it's small and F2.8 only add to its utility. Since it's Manual Focus only, it takes a bit of extra attention to check the focus setting when in use. Because of the 7.5MM length, you only need to be approximately correct when setting the focus. And...for less than $150, it's a great buy..!
I bought this last year during the pandemic, and since I typically film local brass bands, there hasn't really been an opportunity to break it out. The last couple of weeks have been the first time, and I'm thrilled. The lens feels sturdy and solid. Image quality is nice and sharp-- on a MFT it's a 15mm equivalent so it winds up being more of an ultrawide-- the distortion is there and it adds a little 'je ne sai quois' to the image, but it's not really pronounced. For my purposes it's really wonderful to be able to get in close and still fit pretty much a whole band of 15-18 performers into frame, and they love it too. I don't know how well this would work for still photography (probably great, but I don't know yet) but for video work it's excellent and at $139 a heck of a great deal! Very satisfied.
Best Bang For The Buck
This little lens is devastatingly underrated. It's compact, sharp, and built like a tank. It's also quite stylish when mounted to my Fujifilm X-T2 and X-T3. The focus ring is nicely dampened and turns smoothly. The aperture ring turns smoothly as well, although I'd prefer a clicked aperture ring. Since the lens is so compact, it's extremely easy to turn both rings by mistake. Like other fisheye lenses, you CAN NOT mount a filter in the front or rear of this lens. The lens hood is solid metal and perfectly protects the giant front element. The lens cap is nice too. A push on style cap that slides over the hood. Be sure not to lose it, because it isn't easily replaced. Here's a sample taken with my Fujifilm X-T2. Shot at ISO 200 f/5.6
