    Visited Gardens by the bay yesterday, had only 30min to walk around. Certainly a great place to test out the Fisheye. A few shots to share. Mostly exposure fused with photomatix to increase dynamic range, and slight PP after. Set to F5.6 sweet spot and 0.7m focus distance, point and shoot. Can click on picture

    Looks & Built

    Here's some shots taken just now.

    From front. It looks really handsome.


    From sides. The red ring on lens really matches my red thread leather case! However it also renders my case bundled lens cap useless as it's uses a deep cap that covers the whole lens. Though the chrome part kinda sticks out quite prominently. Looks is always subjective so I leave to the readers to decide if it's nice.


    It has a metal mount, which is great. And as it's manual focus lens, the focus ring feels well dampened and easy to manual focus. It has distance markers which is great, however no DOF marker, some may frown, I feel it's ok
    as there's plenty DOF with this lens, and further help that it's on a cropped APSC sensor. One observation I have though is there is 0.7m 1m & 2m (shown below) markers before infinity & this is good, whereas on my m43 7.5mm version, it's only 0.25m before infinity & maybe little more tricky if need closer focusing are hyperfocal shooting.



    Even at F2.8, the hyperfocal distance is 1.14m. At F8. it gets down to 0.408m. So it's rather difficult to get subjects out of focus especially stopped down.

    Hey, thanks Justintime for dropping by and comments. Samyang fisheye changed my perspective for a relatively unknown brand since I used it end last year. Awesome & fun experience!

    Will send you a PM on this as would like to keep the review as a review related discussion rather than price discussion, hope you understand. Thanks for dropping by. Cheers, LP!

    Didn't know the lens is already available in Singapore. I saw your posts here last night, straight went to ArtWorkFoto to get it today during lunch hour :-)

    Can't wait to try it over the long weekend ...

    And thanks for the sample shots, they're great!
