About Sunex 5.6mm f/5.6

Sunex DSLR circular superfisheye lens for Nikon is a new type of fisheye lens developed exclusively for digital SLR cameras using APS-C or DX format imagers. Unlike other fisheye lenses, Sunex SuperFisheye forms a complete circular image within the camera imager area. It captures a field of view 185° in a single shot.

This high quality, yet simple-to-use lens features an optimized fixed aperture and focus to achieve the best image quality for panoramic photography. This lens is designed using the state of art optical design software taking advantage of newly available high-index glasses to achieve sharp image from center to edge.

BBAR coatings are applied to all air-glass interfaces to keep the overall flare/ghosting at a minimum. The Dewarper DSLR distortion correction/optimization software is recommended for this lens

Fantastic lens


from Brisbane, Australia  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am using this lens with my Nikon and my spherical panoramic head and they really work well. I was frustrated for a long time trying to create a spherical/cubic panorama until I bought this lens and with a proper stitching program for this kind of fiheye lens it is a breeze now. I am using 3 shots 120 degrees apart and never have a failure. The stitching program is critical if you use the wrong one you will not get the results!!!!
