Don't let the lack of auto focus and automatic aperture control prevent you from buying this lens. It's pretty easy to use. You must use the lens in either manual or aperture priority mode and focus is very forgiving because of the large depth of field. Automatic and Program modes will not work with this lens. If you want to check focus, you can very easily use the zoom display function and then set the focus. To use this lens, you must set your camera to "Shoot Without Lens" before using this lens because there is no electrical connections between the camera and the lens and the camera will not know that it is attached. To set the f-stop, you use a aperture ring on the lens, just like in the days before fully automatic SLRs. I normally shoot in manual or aperture priority mode, and I really like having the aperture control on the lens instead of using a control on the camera body.
The size of this lens is perfect for the micro 4/3 system. It's not too big and it's not too small.
The lens is sharp even wide open and the build quality is excellent. Yes it produces a distorted image..its a fisheye, but distortions are corrected in Photoshop or Lightroom and it does not produce a black frame around the image like other fisheyes.
The Rokinon 7.5mm is great for video and HDR photos.
I did a side by side test with a friends Panasonic 8mm and the image quality is pretty similar. But I have to admit, the Panasonic is easier to use because of the auto focus.
This isn't the kind of lens you will use every day so the significantly lower cost than the Panasonic 8mm is much appreciated. No regrets on this purchase.
First, the image quality: At F/5.6 it is razor sharp all the way into the extreme corners, at F/3.5 (wide open) it is razor sharp across almost the entire frame and is showing just the tiniest bit of softness (only visible at 200% really) in the extreme corners. I have to say, when I opened my test shots in Lightroom my jaw just about dropped, I really did not expect performance this good. There is a bit of red/cyan lateral chromatic aberration. This was easily handled in Lightroom with the CA slider and any modern image editor should have a similar control.
Second, the build: It is a well constructed lens. Most of the body is high quality plastic. The mount and base of lens is metal (the silver part of the black lens) as is the red ring. The rest of the lens body is plastic. The lens cap is an effective latching design that holds itself by the hood petals. This is nicer than a friction fit design, but it does require orienting the lens cap when attaching. It is a surprisingly small lens. Check online reviews to get a feel for the relative size. The focus ring is nicely damped. The aperture ring has a good feel and distinct clicks. It is a very small lens, so it does require some care to not bump one ring while adjusting the other.
Third, the price: Fisheyes twice this price and twice the size often don't perform as well as this lens. Samyang/Rokinon has been making some impressive and reasonably priced lenses recently and this one should be near the top for value and performance.
Finally, some hopefully helpful details and clarifications.
This is an equal area projection fisheye lens, like most every fisheye on the market.Read more ›
My Panasonic G1 and G2 cameras even can make good use of electronic flash indoors with this fisheye lens, under certain circumstances. Obviously no accessory flash unit will actually cover 180 degrees corner to corner to match the fisheye lens, but when shooting the length of my living room with a Nissin Di466 flash unit made for Four Thirds cameras, which has a zoom head that will cover lenses as short as 12mm, enough light bounces around from the off-white walls and ceiling to provide pretty good overall exposure, just some darkening in the extreme corners.
Some have complained about the difficulty of focusing this manual-focus lens. In fact this is a non-issue, since the depth of field is so enormous, even wide open, that focusing can simply be ignored. Leave it set at infinity, or just slightly "cracked" from the infinity setting, and you will be fine in practically all ordinary circumstances. In the Micro Four Thirds format, the depth of field of a 7.5mm lens at f/3.5 set at infinity is 3.55 ft to infinity. Stopped down to f/5.Read more ›
