The Samyang 8mm F2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens is the updated version of the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye lens, with improved optical construction containing 11 elements in 8 optical groups including 2 aspherical and 3 ED elements for optimum optical performance. Designed for Sony E mount digital cameras with APS-C or smaller sized sensors.
Offering an immense field of view - 180 degrees, with a 12mm (35mm equivalent) field of view. The 8mm is a diagonal fisheye lens for APS-C format, meaning that the image it produces fills the frame on APS-C cameras. As with all current Samyang lenses it is manual focus only. It is compact, and lightweight, giving a perfect combination with compact system cameras.
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 with appropriate software and hardware from third party manufacturers. Fisheye lenses are also popular for special effects use where distortion, exaggerated perspective, or extreme depth of field are desired.
Ultra Multi Coating(UMC)
Samyang apply the UMC(ultra multi coating) to reduce flare and ghost as much as possible and get clear and fresh colour image.
180 Wide Angle Of View
180 degree wide angle gives you the utmost features of fish eye lenses.
Bright aperture (F2.8)
F2.8 enables taking vivid and sharp photo even in dark environments.
Glass aspherical lens (AS)
Provides the high quality and contrast image even when aperture is fully opened by revising colour aberration.
Low distortion lens (ED)
Lowers unnecessary light dispersion to effectively dropped colour aberration.
Aperture with almost full circle
6 aperture blades creating almost a full circle when closed express ray beautifully as starlight.
