The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO lens is the fastest series production fisheye lens in the world with its f1.8 bright aperture. Targeted at photographers with astronomy, underwater, landscape and professional-imaging interests, this special lens captures distinctive ‘fisheye’ perspectives with the viewing angle of a 16mm lens.
An extraordinarily high level of sophistication has been applied to its optical design, with emphasis on the absolute minimisation of comatic and chromatic aberrations at large apertures – optical issues especially critical in wide field astro-imaging. Its optics comprises seventeen high- performance lens elements arranged in fifteen groups, to achieve extremely high clarity across the image field up to the periphery of the recorded image. Special lens elements include Olympus’ proprietary Super HR (Super High Refractive) and Super ED (Super Extra-Low Dispersion) glass.
With a remarkable compactness, and light weight of just 315g, the new M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 PRO arguably represents ILC optical engineering at the very leading edge.
