Samyang 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fish-eye is currently the smallest and the brightest fisheye lens designed to work with APS-C compact cameras.
Its optical construction comprises 10 elements arranged in 8 groups, including one aspherical element and two ED lens elements with a really low dispersion factor. Thanks to this solution, the lens is extremely bright and maintains good focusing in the entire field of view. Each lens element is covered with multi-layered anti-reflective UMC coatings that improve the quality of contrast on the image. Maximum angle of view is 180 degrees, while the minimum focusing distance is 0.3 meters.Despite its small size, the lens provides exceptional optical quality and high image parameters.
The lens is available in black and silver colours.
The Samyang 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fish-Eye II Lens is a prime fisheye lens specifically designed for APS-C sized image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12mm and full 180° angle of view, this lens is well-suited for creative applications as well as interior and architectural subjects. Its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions.
Three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion in order to produce sharper images. Additionally, the lens' design features a built-in lens hood and a UMC coating has been applied to the lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.
