Olympus Zuiko 8mm f/3.5 E-ED Digital Fish-Eye Lens for the E Digital SLR System.
Shoot by land or by sea with the 8mm f3.5 fisheye lens. Designed for digital photography, this full frame 8mm fisheye lets you view and compose dramatic ultra wide-angle "fisheye" images of 180 degrees for dramatic photos with edge-to-edge sharpness.
These results are further enhanced due to ED lens elements that minimize chromatic aberrations, a circular aperture diaphragm for natural-looking background blur, and multi-coating to reduce flaring and ghosting. The dust- and splash-resistant design lets you shoot no matter the weather.
The fascinating effects produced by barrel distortion and an extensive depth of focus, as well as the ability to capture superb wide-angle macro shots as close as 5.3 inches, can also be harnessed underwater.
The 8mm fisheye can be combined with the EVOLT E-300 and the PT-EO1 and PPO-E04 underwater housing and port for impressive capabilities below sea level. The close focus and 153 degree angle of view will let you capture sea life up close as deep as 196 feet.
The Olympus 8mm F/3.5 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Olympus 8mm F/3.5: Consistent output, Easily interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus and Strong construction.
