The Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens is the most affordable 8mm Fisheye Lens in the market. It features the widest field of view over any other 8mm fisheye lens, and its build quality and optical construction are superb. The ROKINON 8mm lens is designed for digital SLR cameras with APS-C image sensors. For these types of cameras, it provides full-frame coverage - which means that pictures will cover the entire frame. It is also compatible with cameras that have a full-frame sensor. For cameras with full-frame sensors, the lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close images will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect. The ROKINON 8mm lens creates imageswith an expanded and exaggerated perspective and an extremely wide 180° angle ofview.
this lens produces exactly what it stated it does in the paramiters it was designed to operate in
everything I expected it to be; works as advertised... sharp ........... having a blast with it
This lens is far exceeding my expectations. Based on previous reviews praising this lower cost APS-C format fisheye, I de3cided to purchase it. I'm glad I did. I got the Nikon chipped version. It works perfectly on my D3200 and my older D60. Earlier reviews said it was tight on the bayonet, but they seemed to work that out, because it fits fine. All functions work. Being manual focus is not an issue, since it's a super wide in the first place, and it works with focus confirmation on my cameras. The images are super high quality. I use it for a virtual tour program and for regular ultra wide pics. I'm very happy with this lens.
The box isn't beautiful but the lens is amazing. Although this is a manual focus lens, it's very easy to use/focus! It's very sharp and the price is great! Very recommended!
tough to beat this lens for the price. looks to be very well made
Easy to use and cheap.
