Samyang’s 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye is currently the smallest and brightest Fisheye lens compatible with compact system cameras featuring the APS-C sensor. It perfectly combines high optical value, impressive lens speed and exceptionally compact dimensions. The sophisticated optical construction relies on the system of 10 lens elements arranged in 8 groups. They include one Aspherical and two Extra low Dispersion glass (ED) elements. This provides perfect sharpness over the entire field of view and maximum aperture of f/2.8. All lens suffaces have multi-layered UMC anti-reflective coatings applied which add to the high contrast rendition and superb light transmission. Maximum angle of view is a staggering 180 degrees and minimum focusing distance is just 0.3m.

Description

Details

The Samyang 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens is the updated version of the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye lens, with improved optical construction containing 11 elements in 8 optical groups including 2 aspherical and 3 ED elements for optimum optical performance. 

designed for high resolution interchangeable lens Compact System Cameras (CSC), such as Sony E-Mount NEX /ILCE with cropped sensors, and Fujifilm X mount digital cameras with APS-C or smaller sized sensors. Offering an immense field of view - 180 degrees, with a 12mm (35mm equivalent) field of view. The 8mm is a diagonal fisheye lens for APS-C format, meaning that the image it produces fills the frame on APS-C cameras. As with all current Samyang lenses it is manual focus only. It is also compact, and lightweight, giving a perfect combination with compact system cameras.

Due to the very large depth of field produced by such a small focal length lens, focus can be easily achieved by simply setting the approximate distance on the lens scale. As with all manual focus lenses for critical or in very close focus situations you can use Live-View to fine-tune the focus manually.

A cine version of this lens is available: Samyang 8mm T3.1 VDSLR UMC Fisheye II Lens.

The Samyang 8mm F2.8 fish-eye lens is also capable of producing panoramas and 360 virtual tours, including full 360 degree images with appropriate software and hardware from third party manufacturers.

Fisheye lenses are also popular for special effects use where distortion, exaggerated perspective, or extreme depth of field are desired.

Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC fish-eye II is available in either a black or silver finish. Available mounts: Sony E-mount, Fujifilm X
