Samyang 8mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Fisheye

This 8mm fisheye lens provides a diagonal field of view of 180 degrees on an APS-C mirrorless camera, sports a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and is available for around £270 for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras in a black or silver finish.

As there is no electronic coupling between this lens and the camera, metering is performed by stopping down the aperture and focusing is performed manually. As fisheye lenses provide extensive depth of field, this shouldn't put you off, especially if the low price is taken into consideration.
