GF1 + Samyang 8mm from ADAM MADA on Vimeo.

One of our readers R.B. found a “solution” for all of you thinking that the new Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens is too expensive.
If you don’t care about size or manual focusing you could go for the Samyang/Falcon/Bower/Rokinon/Opteka 8mm Fisheye that sells for $300. It produces sharp images and has no vignetting. Used with a $20 adapter for Micro 4/3 u get a nice fisheye image at half the price.

Click here to get the lens on eBay (and yes it is crazy that the same lens has so many names!):
