The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood from Samyang gives you a 167° view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting.
The 8mm lens focuses as close as 12" (30.48 cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that provides glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting at full frame digital or 35mm and you will get Circular Image.
This AE edition features chip transmitting all data necessary for light measurement and allowing to control the aperture directly from your camera’s body. Most importantly, this solution allows you to take full advantage of your flash. All parameters are displayed in EXIF.
