Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 overview

  • 1Description

One of the most distinct lens designs, the Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5 from Panasonic is a 180° fisheye that produces unique and creative distortion for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Pairing a modest maximum aperture and a sophisticated optical design, a compact and lightweight form factor is possible, and the optical design also features one extra-low dispersion element to maintain high clarity and color accuracy. Individual elements have also been multi-coated, and a built-in lens hood is featured, to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and more accurate colors. Additionally, a stepping AF motor and an internal focus mechanism afford quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance to suit both video and photo applications.

Ultra-wide fisheye lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 16mm equivalent focal length.
Fisheye design renders a 180° angle of view to produce a distinct visual appeal characterized by dramatic distortion and a creative depiction of space.
One extra-low dispersion element is used in the optical design to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Individual elements have been multi-coated to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping AF motor and internal focus design provides smooth and quiet focusing performance that is well-suited to both photo and video use.

    Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 reviews

    Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5 Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little lens! I first bought the Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye. But since I do a lot of close-up with my kids, I needed AF since they move a lot. On my Olympus E-M1, the focus is fast in good light, and a little bit slower when the lightning is dimmer. The lens is very sharp in the center wide opened. And at f5.6 and above, it is sharp corner to corner. It can flare a lot but less than with the Samyang, not by much thought. Tha built quality is better than the Samyang but is expected. The focus ring is much smoother, something that I did not expected. The one the Samyang was very stiff. In all, I am happy with the Pana, much more than my first purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fisheye ! I'm using this lens on an E-P3, and the results I have obtained are nothing short of amazing. Chromatic aberrations are extremely well controlled, even when shooting subjects against the sun, and the distortion isn't extreme - just right for a fisheye for my taste. The lens is extremely sharp and very compact, macro capability is amazing for a fisheye. If you're a fisheye enthusiast and are on the micro 4/3 platform, I definitely would not hesitate to buy this lens. A similar quality dslr lens costs twice to three times more...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for underwater photography Add this fisheye to a 10cm dome port and that's it! The image quality is amazing and you don't get that tunnel vision effect you have when using SLRs with fish eyes and minidome ports due do the image distortion associated with the dome. Whith this lens and the 10cm dome you get one of the best superwide-angle you can dream of for underwater photography. The minimum focus distance is about 0cm from the dome, so you can get as close as you can. The only draw back is that it won't be so easy to take over-under shots with small-moderate sized waves, as it would be with a 20cm dome, you will have to be more patient. On the oher hand you gain reach and manouverability in tight places. If I would use it only for dry photography, I'd test the fisheye manual lenses from kenko/samyang/bower, and, if the IQ matched I'd get one of these instead. My final word is, this lens coupled with a 10cm (4,33 inches) is one of the cheapest and best sets for underwater wide-angle photography in the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun lens I'm amateur photographer and this is my 2nd lens for Lumix GX1. As expected with a fisheye lens, taking photo is fun and exciting. You see the world in different perspective and the image captured are clear and I use it mostly to take landscape picturs for now, no more need to stitch up panoramas this camera capture it all in one shot. But the lens is very big so dirt get on the lense easily and it is very difficult to clean. My dog licked the lense and I am unable to clean the lens ever since.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Valuable Bag of Tricks Lense I bought this lense as my third for my M4/3 ELP-1. Excellent on photowalks to break up the look of a collection with some cool wide angle shots. Used it too much at first but have now worked out that it is best with large foreground subjects. I also use it on a monopod held over subjects for a different angle or a really interesting group shot. Pretty rugged as I dropped it on concrete from about two feet and no issues. Pricey but unique. No regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! This is a fantastic lens! I'm a long time Canon shooter, and used most of wide-angles in Canon lineup over the years. None of them had a wow factor in sharpness this little guy has. Chromatic abberations are non-existant, and flare is well-controlled. Couple this with a tiny size, and this lens is a winner! A lot more spherical panoramas are in my future...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply excellent! This lens is an excellent combination of size and quality for any m4/3 camera. I've shot dozens of pics with it and the sharpness, contrast, and color are first-class. If you want a fisheye lens for your m4/3 camera this is a no brainer.
