Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Reviews

A creative lens to change your perspective

By Peter

I bought this lens for a creative boost in getting out and shooting more. It has been a fun exploration in learning the dynamics of a fish eye lens. The price to quality ratio met my expectations and needs. I would recommend this lens to anyone looking for a creative boost.

Very good lens for price

Used it for some real state projects a couple of times I was in a rush. Might get a little soft in the corners and isn't perfect for handling big contrast situation. But other than that I strongly recommend this lens for anybody who doesn't need to have top-notch professional quality. Great for the average shooter.

Amazing

In skate videography our equipment takes a MASSIVE beating. Although this lens doesn't necessarily last through all of them at least it's inexpensive to replace. Would highly recommend for anyone but professionals

Used my new 8mm f/ 3.5 lense on my Canon 90D , Crop sensor camera. Very crisp photos with excellent curvature! This lens provides a unique perspective to say the least. Can't wait to use this lense at the Grand Canyon in May 2022.

welcome addition to my bag

The Rokinon 8mm Fisheye Lens for Nikon F mount is a great, lightweight lens at an amazing price. It attaches smoothly to my Nikon D7100 and is fun as well as an enhancement tool for dramatic, creative landscapes.

question

Using Canon T3i: this lens, with non-removable hood, is noted as compatible with the T3i. Comparing this lens to the same model WITH removable hood, is there an issue with vignetting? Seems that buying the version with removable hood provides a perfect option as the hood can be added or removed. Am I missing something? Is there a reason to NOT get the removable hood version for use with my T3i?
Asked by: Anonymous
Aside from personal preference, the version with the removable hood can take up less room in storage if the hood is removed or reverse. There will not be any vignette issues caused by the hood on either version of the lens.

question

Can I put a filter on this lens? If so, what mm?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 fisheye does not have a front filter thread, nor is there a filter holder on the market for this lens I am aware of. So, you could not use filters with this lens.
