Samyang 8mm T3.8 Asph IF MC Fisheye Review

 

Gary Wolstenholm reviews the Samyang 8mm T3.8 Asph IF MC fisheye, a lens tailored for video recording.

Excellent sharpness in the centre when stopped down; Good build quality; Stepless aperture is an excellent feature for those recording video; Inexpensive; Stereographic projection

Geared focusing and aperture rings can be a little uncomfortable

Samyang 8mm F/3.5 Fisheye CS (AE) Lens – 48

 

This Samyang lens and I didn't get off to a good start for the simple fact it was fiddly to mount. There is no magic dot on the lens barrel to match with the camera body for easy mounting and once it was correctly aligned it was stiff to attach and...

I would def recommend this product

 

Great dof with the fisheye. Lovely colour and easy to use. The F stop is controlled on the lens and is manual focus but I set mine to infinity and have had great results.

Fantastic little lens for a great price!

 

This is a great little lens, the low price is a bonus! It's manual focus but so much fun to use. The aperture is manual only and a little soft at f/3.5, and not the best at f/22 either, but from f/5.6 to f/16, f/8 being the best, it produces very sharp...
