Woah! Excellent result!

 

Great demonstration of a fantastic lens and the worth of good image stabilisation as well.

Thanks Anthony and Alan for watching and commenting.

 

Alan, the Samyang is a fantastic lens and exceptional value for money. Still the advantage of the extra light gathering of the Olympus 8mm f1.8 (vs f3.5 on the Samyang) is tempting. I shoot quite a lot of dark interiors with a fisheye and it would be nice to be able to use lower iso's.

For sure faster lenses are handy, Luc, but for whatever reason, Samyang have got the edge colour fringing that's been bad on every fisheye I ever used before almost completely beat. Both the M4/3 and APS-C versions are excellent with this, so hopefully Olympus has worked out the secret as well, because a 1.8 fisheye will by its very nature be more susceptible to fringing.

Thanks Alan you're right about the importance of (non)-fringing. I won't make any hasty decisions I'm very attached to the Samyang. And the forthcoming Panasonic 8-18mm f2.8-4 lens may be a more versatile wide-angle lens to complement my gear.

I tried the Olympus 8mm 1.8. Great lens. Enormous price.

Great interior shot of "het Tropenmuseum", no intention to disrupt but i butt in with the Samyang 8/3.5 on a Df ,

i tried a copy of this lens from my son who uses it on a xt-1, its not a full circular fisheye with the hood off on ff, and it shows fringing when contrasts are pushed and shadow highlight recovery was applied because of the dynamics like on this image
