    This lens was designed for APS-C and fitted with a 4/3 mount. That means you are getting a 1.33x crop of 180 degrees, or 135 degrees. That's still very wide and this lens is very good, but I'd hold out for the m4/3 mount if you are really interested in fisheye. I suspect these would be hard to sell if you decide it is not for you.

    Damn! I bought the 7.5 last week for $105 more. Isn't this one supposed to be better due to a more advanced projection?

    Not much in it. The old one has more purple fringing, and is bigger and heavier as it's an APS-C lens. It also doesn't cover the same FoV as was mentioned due to it being an APS-C lens. The fact that it's near stereographic in it's projection is cool though, it means you lose less corner resolution when re-projecting.
