The NEW Samyang 8mm Ultra Wide Angle Fisheye Lens is the most affordable 8mm Fisheye Lens in the market. It features the widest field of view over any other 8mm fisheye lens, and its build quality and optical construction are superb. The Samyang 8mm lens is designed for digital SLR cameras with APS-C image sensors. For these types of cameras, it provides full-frame coverage - which means that pictures will cover the entire frame. It is also compatible with cameras that have a full-frame sensor. For cameras with full-frame sensors, the lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close images will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect. The Samyang 8mm lens creates images with an expanded and exaggerated perspective and an extremely wide 180 Degree angle of view. The lens is available for the following mounts: Canon EOS, Nikon with auto confirm chip, Sony Alpha, Pentax & Olympus 4/3.

This lens works with APC and full frame sensors. You will have to crop somewhat with full frame sensors but it is a very good lens. A bargain.
Purchased from Amazon. Received in two days. Would not reach infinity focus, called Amazon received replacement in two days. Second lens would not focus at infinity. Focusing on the two lens were at different distant marking for the same object, Since I bought the lens for full sky astrophotography, infinity was a must. Not wanting to ask for a third lens and reading about this problem many times on the internet, I rolled back the rubber ring to expose the the 3 screws that lets you adjust the location of the distance marks, loosened the screws moved the ring until I could get a sharp infinity focus at hard stop, rolled back the rubber and the lens works fine. Great lens once everything is corrected. Great for landscapes and sharp when cropped. Five stars if Samyang sends lenses out adjusted correctly. Hank
This is a great lens, especially for the money. You could pay much more, and get a technically better lens, but who cares about edge clarity with the distortion inherent in a fisheye? Color is good, center sharpness is very acceptable, and it generally performs quite nicely for the few times you'd use a fisheye.
