The Bower 8mm f/3.5 Ultra-Wide Fisheye Lens with a 180° angle of view, allows the photographer to see his subjects in unique way. This ultra-wide delivers a rounded perspective, well-suited to landscapes and unusual portraiture. It has multi-coated elements and a fixed petal-type lens hood to reduce flare and ghosting.

Can get some aperture ghosting, but I have gotten some great shots with this lens. May take a few shots to get use to this lens, but it is easy to use.
I bought this lens for my husband for christmas. The price was great for a starter lens. Im sure he would have rather had a auto focus lens but he loved this lens. Perfect buy, and much more affordable than an auto focus.
ok where do i begin.. I was first hesitant on a 3rd party companies glass considering I only shoot & own Nikon products. Nikon has a 10.5mm I was planning to buy but for 699.99 plus tax, I didn't wanna pluck down the dough on such an expensive lens so i did my research, checking every website for an alternative and i have to say, this 8mm is the bessssst lens i've ever owned!!! its not fishy at all, its perfect!! I own several cameras but this ones for my Nikon D90 so its really at a 12mm crop factor.. their the perfect eHarmony match lol (ok back to the subject). This was my first time ever ordering so naturally i was worried. So finally I just said "do it".. I ordered the lens at around 12:30am wednesday early morning, i paid 42 bucks for next day delivery & it arrived at 10:15am thursday morning.. GOD SPEED FAST!!! Unpacking was like Christmas, all i could do was smile! the Fish is finally all mine lol. the Lens was packed very well! came in a typical brown box about a pound in a half, firmly in Bower's Box and surrounded around air cushion packs. i will definitely order from Adorama again and stop giving all my money to Samy's Camera, sorry to say it but its true.. its better to order online than it is to walk into a camera robbery shop lol. hope this review answered a few questions. please feel free to ask me anything else, peace.
