Samyang 8mm f/3.5 overview

  • 1Description

The  8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with AE Chip and Removable Hood for Nikon from Samyang gives you a 180° view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with a DX format camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame (FX) digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical lenses 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" (30.48 cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that provides glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting at full frame digital or 35mm.

The Nikon F mount version of this lens features an electronic circuit which allows for full control of exposure parameters accessible from the Nikon camera, including i-TTL flash communication and EXIF data with all Nikon Digital SLR cameras.

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

    Samyang 8mm f/3.5 reviews

    8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with AE Chip and Removable Hood for Nikon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens for the money I rarely need to use a fish eye but there are times when there is so much going on in a scene that an ultra wide lens just doesn't get everything you want in the frame. This fish eye lens coupled with Fisheye Hemi program allows you to do just that without the super fishy look. As long as the objects are 6 feet in front of you, you can get some amazingly unique shots. I recommend this lens over the older version that doesn't allow you to remove the hood because its sharper. I absolutely love that this lens doesn't flare or ghost very easily. Lock this lens at f8 - f11 and never look back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this lens I am an amateur photographer who has always loved looking at unique shots with different lens's. I have been wanting a Fisheye for a few years and finally decided this is the lens I want to try. I am going to the West Coast for a nice relaxing vacation and could see me using this lens. I LOVE IT !!!! Nice crisp and clear imagines. It is easy to use, works great with my Nikon 5100 and I ordered it one day and got it the next. Dealing with B&H has been quite the pleasure from ordering memory cards to lenss. I am totally satisfied. I looked at a couple of fish-eyes and this one was perfect for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising good for the price A Fishyeye lens is a novelty item. Having acquired most lenses that I have wanted, I gave consideration to the novelty use of a Fisheye . After reading the reviews of the low price lenses available, I decided to take a chance on the Samyang 8mmf/3.5. The reviews had both praised the attributes and warned of the faults. I am very surprised and pleased with the photos with the Samyang. Note the advice of some reviewers and shoot at f/8 and up if you can. Amazing sharpness, color, and contrast for lens user $300.00. If you are on the fence, go for it and have fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fisheye! When I get bored shooting, I grab this guy and have fun! Set it on f8 put the distance scale at 3 ft and shoot anything up close!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trs satisfait du cot qualit/prix Dernirement je jonglais avec l'ide de me procurer un UGA mais, le prix m'en empchait, surtout que ce n'tait que pour mon plaisir.Suite la lecture de plusieurs revues sur le Samyang 8 mm, j'ai dcid de faire le saut et j'avoue bien m'amuser depuis. Il y a une question d'adaptation mais, une fois cette tape passe, que du pur plaisir. Je ne peux comparer avec un objectif UGA Pro mais, il rpond mes besoins et mes attentes, bref il me satisfait pleinement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Lens! This is definitely worth the buy! It focuses at pretty much anything on infinity, the AE chip makes it so much easier too! Also I love that the hood is guaranteed to stay on and everything feels very sturdy and strong! The 180 degrees feels very weird and is definitely something to get use to! Awesome though! I highly recommend this! I have a Nikon D5500 and everything works perfectly! Only downside is changing it over: as it does not have a specific area to line up with :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samyang 8mm Fisheye with AE CHIP Samyang mazes a great Fisheye lens at a third of the cost of the other high end manufactures Normally I’m strictly a Nikon lens buyer but after reading the reviews I wanted to try it out so glad I did ....this lens at first I thought was below par but after researching and experimenting with it I learned the techniques to get extraordinary beautiful pictures and 180 degree perspectives that I thought I only could get out of a high price lens how wrong I was this lens is 5 Stars
