Work in Progress: M.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Fisheye

I was shooting with the new Olympus M.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Fisheye lens last weekend, but did not collect sufficient images to compose a full blog review here. 

Do allow me some more time to shoot. So far I am quite in love with the lens. However, at the same time, it is not an easy lens to use! It does not work at everything you point it to, and obviously I am no fisheye expert. Nonetheless I shall do my best. 

A shot taken with E-M5 Mark II and the 8mm F1.8 Fisheye lens, the world's first F1.8 fisheye lens!


  1. I wish you photographed at skate parks.

    I'm sure you'll figure out what to do with the lens.

  2. Very well composed, the image is full of colors!! Just excellent!!!

  3. suggestion: take some shots with this lens from low perspective (frog perspective). it will give you something different

  4. Hi Robin!

    Do you have any more direct way for new firmware functions than we normal users?
    During travelling (one year on a bike through South America) my Samyang 7.5 Fisheye is my ultrawide lens. Depending on the motive I defish the Fotos with Hugin.
    Now I thought as Oly has a Fisheye now, it could make sense to offer a defishing in Camera, like perspective control. Perhaps even integrated there...


  5. Hi! Robin,
    I am a Newbie here with my Olympus M1 Mark II,Every time I read your review,it really makes me in love with your write-ups and all those photos.
    It's really very expensive in investing on combination of adapter/holder on Lee Foundation Filter Kit and Filter for my newly owned 7-14mm Pro len.
    Robin, Pleas keep it up, shooting and review more. This could helps me to learn from you too.
