    Yes, at least it’s small. You don’t want a big fish-eye as you don’t spend all day shooting with it and after a bit you just want to slip it into a pocket and use another lens. 180 degress is fun. Just remember to keep the camera forward of your feet.

    so this is just a rehatched 8mm fisheye but a lot smaller.

  • WOW! So compact!

  • Arthur

    Hope they’ll come up with a full frame 24mm f/1.4 and a 150mm f/2.8 macro!

    No need for AF on those lenses!

    Nice to see Samyang become another economical alternative to the big guns. Hope the Image quality will be acceptable…. That 35 f/1.4 looks pretty good with the aspherics and special glass inside.

      Well the sample images didnt seem sharp and was quite low contrast. But i hope real life samples will be bettrt
