One of our 43rumors friends “D.B.” contacted the Samyang Assistant Manager and asked him:
“Good Day .
i am interesting in Samyang Lens : 8mm fisheye
I know that you produce this lens for varius mounts – but Four Thirds mount ( Olympus and Panasonic DSLR ) is not among them
Do you have plans to produce this 8mm lens in Four Thirds mount ?
Do you plan to produce any other of your lenses ( like 85mm/1.4 ) for Four Thirds mount ?
Since this question is interesting to many Olympus and Panasonic DSLR users i will post your answer on Forums ( with your permissions )
thank you . ”
The answer is:
Thank you for your email today.
We do not have any plan to produce 85mm or 8mm fisheye lens for Four Thirds mount.
We share same optical part on 4 different mount types such as Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax. The size of their image sensors are almost same but 4/3 image sensor is smaller than others. It makes more narrow angle of view and less fisheye effect on 4/3 camera.
It is possible to make 4/3 mount but due to the above reason, we do not make one for 4/3.
