  • 1Description

The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Canon from Rokinon gives you a 167º view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical elements and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 8mm lens focuses as close as 12" (30.48cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f/3.8 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that will offer glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting with full frame digital or 35mm cameras. 

Note: Produces a circular, vignette image on full-frame sensors or 35mm film

    Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 reviews

    8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Canon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 152.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Lens. True to all its Specs. The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens is everything as stated. Provides for clear, responsive output and is of a solid construction. I used it for test shots in my room, horizon shots on a dock, and on a hike, during which I took wide angle landscape shots and time-lapse shots for running water. I was satisfied with the lens' performance(my performance was a bit lacking though haha). Now, I did return the lens but that was only because the rounded fish-eye finish of the shots just aren't my personal taste. BUT, it is a fish-eye lens and it gave a solid and consistent effect throughout. SO, if this is your taste in photography, I highly recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun versatile good value This lens is a good value, which produces pretty high quality images, and perhaps less distortion than you might expect. Depending on how an image is composed, the distortion effect can be exaggerated or hidden. Keeping the horizon or straight lines in the center makes it a very useful ultra-wide lens. Tilting the lens a different way creates a sometimes very useful distorted perspective. Either way, this lens offers a fun new composition challenge to one's kit. Sometimes it's possible to create instant panoramas with a single shot. Construction seems solid, and the focus and aperture rings are smooth. Flare resistance is really good for such a wide angle lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun lens This is what I call a fun lens. I got the Canon version, which is totally manual. This is really not an issue. Once you get the hand of it, it's very easy to use and the pictures look great! On the Canon it covers a field of vision of around 167 degrees. You can get a whole room on one shot. This is a lens to experiment and, as I said, have fun. It allows you to be really creative. The image quality is really good. I did have to calibrate mine which basically means adjusting the distance scale to match the real number. There are some articles on the Internet (google rokinon 8mm calibration). It is a simple procedure but might be intimidating to some. Make sure you read about it before pulling the trigger. Once done (if needed) everything works smoothly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as I thought it Would I purchased this kind of on a whim, I had been looking for several months but a change of plans pushed me to get one sooner than expected. The price was a definite plus and it came just as described with everything it said it would have. It seems as if it is built really well and I will be keeping this in my bag at all times. I expected the manual focus but didn't expect the setting of the aperture manually with a ring behind the focus ring. No big deal, just didn't know it would come like that. I performed very well and after very little practice I was able to get some very nice static shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth Getting! I use this on a 7D and get excellent results.Is very sharp across the full field of view and stopped down to f* meets L lens quality. Very easy to use, meters in Program, Av and Manual modes. I generally set the lens to f8 and set hyperfocal distance and just shoot not worrying about focusing. The 4 stars are because there is no focus confirmation chip which would be nice to have. But if you want a limited use fisheye and don't want to break the bank I say you cannot beat the build and optical quality of this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value! Great images. I got this lens as a B&H Deal of the Day for a remarkable price. Shipping was fast, as usual. Tried the lens out at the beach the next day and I got some amazing shots. Obviously I can't use this lens for most work related things. In fact, even though my Sony cameras are cropped to close to apsc, they won't work with this lens after fitted at the Metabones adapter. You end up seeing some of the tube around the edges. But for fun, I love this lens! I'm taking shots of things I could never have dreamed of. Build quality is great! Even if I paid double what I did, I would have been ecstatic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my bag I read a lot of good reviews and they seemed to be too good to be true, then I took the risk and ordered this lens to find out that everything what was said was true. If you used to shoot by the time years ago, you will remember the old times as this lens is completely manual, no auto focus, no auto diaphragm. Set the maximum aperture, focus, set the diaphragm and press the shutter. If you use f8 or more, everything becomes in focus, so, who need auto-focus?. It's tack sharp! Brilliant. Works very well in my 7D and 40D. If you prefer auto-focus and auto-diaphragm, please look some other alternatives but be prepared for the big bucks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality wide lens at a good price I picked this up as a Deal Zone offer a while back. Coincidentally I had been looking for a fisheye lens for a particular project. This is actually my second Rokinon lens and I must say I'm impressed with their lenses so far. The images are crisp and you get that delicious distortion from the fisheye. Even with the cropped sensor on my camera, which effectively turns this into a 15mm for me, I still get a really nice effect. No, this is not comparable to a Canon L series or anything with a Zeiss badge on it. However, it has the same build and quality as many of Canon's midrange products: hard plastic components wrapped around decent glass.
