  • HELP! Olympus 8mm lens f/1.8 Pro Fisheye

    Anyone got one of these? I haver the Samyang 7.5 which is good, but manual focus and my eyesight is not so good these days. In good light I can stop down and get most in focus, but in low light I would prefer AF.

      I have one Dave. It's a very nice lens. I don't think it's optically superior to the Samyang, but the AF is nice for close-ups and having the EXIF is a worthwhile feature. I bought it to do some wide-field astro (f1.8 being very helpful), but every time I've been somewhere where the light pollution is low it's been heavily overcast!

      On the E-M1ii, there is now the option to show the image de-fished (and de-fished in the JPEG), which can be useful sometimes. I have some samples if you want me to post them.
