Came up on 4/3rds rumours as well. Not a lens for me (or 3 lenses in fact) but there can't be too much choice to be had; the more lenses the better.

Too much for me!
I picked up a 360 birds-eye adapter a few years back which can be fun to play with. but I suppose the effect is quite different. It reflects a 360 x 140 FOV into the camera. the used price being far more appropriate for something that's more likely to be used as a toy than a proper tool :)

Not on Olympus kit but there's an example (https://flic.kr/p/fyJUfs)here if your interested.

It's high time I had another play with it - perhaps shooting some video...

Attached to an Olympus AIR A01 under a drone, would make some spectacular video.

But you'd need a VERY powerful drone the lens is 1.6kg IIRC!

LOL
The original fish-eye was apparently designed for taking full sky images. that sort of shot is easy to keep your toes out of even with 250 FOV.
I guess it might take some creative support systems to get more standard shots. *yes
