Hi guys!

This is an estimate of interest thread for a possible MO for the above lens. As far as we are aware, this is the cheapest and bang for the buck offer for this product here in Singapore.

Description

The new Peleng 8mm f3.5 fisheye lens is an interchangeable, short- focus, super wide-angle, compact lens that provides a stunning circular field of view of 180 degrees and a circular image (not a full-frame image) on the 35mm negative.

It provides meter coupling to your camera’s exposure meter, so you maintain through-the-lens metering. The Peleng 8mm lens is a precision optical piece derived from the Russian defense and space technologies. It is ideal for architecture, landscape, and group pictures. The lens’s high-quality multi- coated glass optics provides superb image transmission and sharpness. The Peleng 8mm Fisheye lens is a compact unit, similar to Nikkor products, but for the fraction of the cost.

Here is a photograph as provided by the vendors:

Pricings

This is the part everyone is waiting for. The indicative price for this MO is as follows:

If there’s overwhelming response and quantities are higher, the price may be even lower, currently estimated at S$465.00 for 10 and $440.00 for 20.

If anyone is interested, do drop me an email at vince1231234@SPAMBOT with your contact particulars (name, handphone and email address).

Once there is sufficient interest to justify taking this MO further, I’ll open a new official MO thread with full details and terms for the MO.

Thanks for taking the time to read this long post.

There's quite a few people arleady interested, but I'm waiting for a few more to meet the minimum sum to make this MO possible.

This is not a Canon lens - it is a Russian made lens.

Yo weekh

Where did you get the lobang for the peeleng lens @ S$370 (with EOS adaptor some more)? ;). Very good price indeed if that's true (unless it's 2nd hand).
The best price I could gather so far for this combo is $15 to $30 lower than vince123123's quote .....

Well its still the lowest MO conducted here right now.

Could you pm me the place where you're getting the lens + EOS adapter for S$380? I would gratefully lower the price down accordingly once the details are confirmed - good for everybody.

Or if you could be so kind as to start an MO at this lower price, please let me know - I'll close this and we can all join your MO instead!

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks to those above who have provided new information that I was not aware of. I'll check it out and see if its possible to MO this, especially for those Canon users out there.

Watch this space for updates!

if its from mike at kievcamera his ad is erroneous. Its actually m42 w/ eos adapter.

I bought an 80t/s from him and thats how it turned out. Worse... the adapter was out of whack and he had to send me a new one. Later i learned from a friend that there have been complaints from the Kiev cam forums that all his "native eos" lenses were actually m42 w/adapter.

Fortunately, my current 80t/s w/adapter works well.

Be aware that those of you who choose to buy the 80t/s in nikon mt. to use w/ adapter for EOS that unlike the m42 version, you must re-center the lens in all axis before you can dismount from camera.

I have had the Peleng 8mm for at least 3 years. The Belorrusia factory which makes them only supplies it in M42 and nikon (both in the kit). However, the lensmount is essentially T-mount distance. It may be possible to actually make it native EOS by buying a correct EOS t-mount adapter and removing the t-mount thread, then attaching this eos mount to the lens. However, you would be best advised to take your 8mm along without its mount to the shops , bring a screwdriver... and try the EOS t-mounts sold before buying one.

Pardon my ignorance, what does it mean?

I have 4 people interested so far and assuming no one backs out, I'd need one more order in order to push this through.

Upz for today!

Is your supplier able to give you a better price? What type of warranty are you giving?
