- extra low dispersion (ED)
- ultra multi coating(UMC)
- glass aspherical lenses (AS)
The Samyang 8mm F2.8 UMC Fisheye Lens is a high quality ultra wide
It gives an immense field of view - 180 degrees, with a 12mm (35mm
equivalent) field of view.
The optical construction of the lens is 11 elements in 8 optical
groups including 2 aspherical and 3 ED elements for optimum optical
performance. The aperture consists of six diaphragm blades with
apertures available from F2.8 to F22. The Samyang 8mm fisheye
features the latest generation multilayer anti-reflection ultra
multi-coating (UMC) to minimise flare and ghosting. The integrated
lens hood also helps to reduce flare from behind the lens.
Due to the very large depth of field produced by such a small focal
length lens, focus can be easily achieved by simply setting the
approximate distance on the lens scale. As with all manual focus
lenses for critical or in very close focus situations you can use
Live-View to fine-tune the focus manually. The Samyang 8mm F2.8
fish-eye lens is also capable of producing panoramas and 360
virtual tours, including full 360 degree images.
Fisheye lenses are also popular for special effects use where
distortion, exaggerated perspective, or extreme depth of field are
Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC fish-eye is available in either a black or
silver finish. Available in Canon M, Sony NEX (E-Mount), Samsung NX
fit or Fujifilm X mount.
