I read a post comparing the Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye vs. the Oly 9mm BCL fisheye. I thought that comparing the Rokinon to a body cap lens was perhaps stretching things a bit. I decided to compare the Rokinon fisheye to the Olympus ED 9-18 wide angle. Maybe it's just a silly exercise since they are quite different, but at least the FL can be compared by cropping the 7.5mm shots to approach the 9mm FL. Anyway, here are a few shots I took from the rooftop of my loft.

And just for the heck of it, here is a shot of the skyscape with a longer lens. Same GX7 body with the PL35-100 f2.8 at about 56mm FL. East viewpoint similar to the first set above
