    The m43 Rokinon/Samyang fisheye is impressive and well regarded by those that own it. I think it sells for $250 so this lens may be of interest to those that have an SLR also or perhaps some that already have an adapter.

    Other mounts are the same price. If you do choose this route, I'd recommend going for a Canon or Nikon mount version. You'll need an adapter regardless and if you ever need to sell the lens, having a popular (i.e. not 4/3) mount will be a big advantage.

    Going by the picture showing this lens mounted on the nex, the native rokinon/samyang/bower version is 1/3 or even 1/4 the size.

    Highly recommend the native one. Very easy to carry around and optically excellent.

    Well the deal is gone now. Its back up to $259
    I was thinking to get one that I could use with my film camera as well as adapted on my µ4/3 body. I love the Circular fish eye look.. But I decided not too.
    I wish that I could find a C-mount fish eye lens that would give me 180 degree circular image on a 4/3 sensor.
