Some Sample Images from 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO

I had quite a blast shooting with the Olympus M.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Fisheye lens and I am excited to share the photographs and write my review of the lens here. However, as I was about to start to compose my blog entry yesterday evening it was already very late. 

Nevertheless, I feel strongly to share at least a few photographs taken with the lens before I publish my full review. What I can say now about the lens is that the F1.8 bright aperture is really something interesting to have on a fisheye lens, and it was a joy using something so wide and so different for a change in my shutter therapy sessions.

  2. Awesome pics Robin! I've never tried shooting with a fish eye lens before. So I'm looking forward to reading your full review and perhaps pick one up. Cheers!

    1. Fisheye is not a popular lens but in some situations it can create some really unique visuals!

  5. Amazing pictures, as usual Robin. Too rich for my blood though (just got the 75mm and 25mm!), so I will stick to my cheapie Pentax Q fisheye that cost $80. =)

    1. Thanks! But the olympus fisheye is one of a kind. F1.8, the one and only.

  8. Did you correct for Chromatic Aberration? I've read that it's too much but I don't see it in your photos. I've made a pre-order.

  9. An another topic. Robin, could you do a review of Olympus 14-150mm II? I would appreciate it very much.

  10. If you could get only one would you get this one or the 7-14mm? They both seem excellent.
