Micro 4/3rds Photography: Fisheye sharpness
what about the regular 4/3 olympus 8mm?
Makes me happy - just traded my 20mm for the Rokinon fisheye. Now I really can't wait to get my hands on it!
I've been very happy with my rokinon fisheye.. but I don't think the difference (in sharpness) is all that much with the Panasonic fisheye.
Even if they are equally sharp that's pretty significant given the price difference.
Yes, completely agree
Well ah...The author's blog is a MFT blog vice a FT blog...:smile:
The Samyang 7.5mm close up shot also very sharp.

I also own the 7.5mm fisheye. When I read the reviews before I bought it, two things stood out: it's freakishly sharp and it's fisheye rendering is more "simple" than the 8mm. The latter is a good thing, since it makes it's photos easier to de-fish.
I have a few shots from it in the 7.5mm thread here, and if you look at them full-size, they're easily worth pixel peeping, even at 16 megapixels.
Considering AF is all but unnecessary for fisheye lenses like these, there is absolutely no reason I can think of to shell out 2.5x or more $ for the panasonic. I love my rokinon!
