Re: Taking the Meike.

The video refers to the photographer's own fingers being in the frame of the Meike fisheye. So it was with the Olympus 16mm in this fisheye shot.
It was the sharpest lens I've ever owned and used on my OM2n for bushwalking and the odd novelty wedding shot, both about 20 years ago.


Fuji Velvia
This full frame Zuiko fisheye has three filters built-in ( L39, Y48 and O56) - https://www.mir.com.my/rb/photograph...s/fish16mm.htm
