Samyang 8mm T3.8 Asph IF MC Fisheye CS VDSLR Review

Handling and features
Samyang 8mm T3.8 Diagonal Fisheye

This 8mm fisheye lens provides a diagonal field of view of 180 degrees on a 1.5x crop APS-C DSLR, sports a fast f/3.5 maximum aperture and is available for around £260 for Canon or Nikon cameras with an APS-C size sensor. The design is specifically tailored for recording video, sporting geared focus and aperture rings for use with professional follow focus equipment.

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.
