This manual focus lens creates images with an expanded perspective, including images with a creatively deformed outlook and a sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame. By offering a 180-degree angle of view, this fisheye lens can be used to create amazing image expressions that cannot be seen by the human eye, such as exaggerated perspective and distortion. The minimum shooting distance (just 12 inches) and large depth of field also provide amazing close-up shots.
In addition, this lens incorporates the latest optical multi-coating techniques. The process of multi-coating, plus the integrated petal-type lens hood, assures virtually flare-free photographs even under adverse lighting conditions, resulting in crisp, high-contrast pictures.
