Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II Lens Review


8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II

This 8mm fisheye lens provides a diagonal field of view of 180 degrees on a 1.5x crop APS-C DSLR, sports f/3.5 maximum aperture and the AE version we are reviewing here is available for around £250 for Nikon cameras with an APS-C size sensor. The AE version has a metering chip built in to transfer exposure information between the lens and the camera. A non-AE version of the same lens is available in Canon, Four Thirds, Nikon, Pentax and Sony flavours for around £210. In this review we’ll take a look at how it performs.
