Item description

Unique shots
The Fisheye lens from Samyang offers a completely new way of looking at things. Thanks to the unusual perspective, there are no limits to creativity. Whether in panorama or landscape photography or even in the tightest of spaces, brilliant all-round shots can be achieved with the Samyang Fisheye. Thanks to the special depth of field and the angle of view of 167° on the Sony camera, all possibilities are open to the photographer who likes to experiment.

High-quality workmanship
The focal length of only 8 mm allows a close-up limit of 30 cm. Exciting wide-angle images can be captured in brilliant sharpness, starting just before the front lens. The high lens speed of 1:3.5 enables excellent shots even in less favourable light conditions. The lens is optimised for the DSLR camera with APS-C sensor. A lens hood prevents stray light and lens reflections from the side. The glass lenses of the lens are coated and bring an excellent contrast as well as a very good sharpness behaviour. The particularly high-quality optics of the lens ensure optimal image results with balanced colour reproduction.

New image composition possibilities
With the Samyang Fisheye, photographers have a wide range of creative possibilities, especially with spherical panoramas. All lines that pass through the centre of the image are not distorted. On the other hand, all lines at the edge are distorted, strongly barrel-shaped. This effect is used for a variety of effects (e.g. globe effect with typical, spherically distorted perspective).

Built-in chip
A chip built into the lens allows you to work with exposure or programme automatic. It also transfers EXIF data such as aperture, ISO value or exposure time.
Note:When using the lens on a Nikon autofocus DSLR, please set the aperture ring on the lens to the smallest value, the red marked aperture 22. Now a transfer of the EXIF data is ensured, the camera can now control the aperture directly in the modes time/aperture and programme automatic. The focusing is purely manual.

Using an APS-C lens on a camera with a full-frame sensor
Lenses designed for cameras with an APS-C sensor can sometimes be used (mainly by using an adapter) on cameras with a full-frame sensor. However, due to the much smaller image circle of APS-C lenses, the edges will be black. The usable area of the image photographed with a full-frame camera therefore corresponds to that of a camera with an APS-C sensor. The images must therefore be cropped in post-processing. Using APS-C lenses on full-frame cameras is therefore possible, but not recommended.
