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
