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.

This seems like a good deal for a fisheye. Needs an adapter, however.
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.
