I've been having trouble working with my Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens getting it to be completely in focus. Here's an example of what I've been shooting: In using the LCD to focus, it's hard to see when I'm on target. I usually take about 5-10 exposures of every shot slightly varying the focus each time hoping to get just the right amount. However, even that gets dubious results. It gets even harder when I'm dealing with bright sunlight. I got one of these guys to hopefully solve that problem: --While it DID help me work in bright sunlight, I found that the resolution of the LCD just didn't let me know if I was in focus or not. When I was able to fill my eye with just the screen, I realized this. Even considering getting one of these (around $250): --But with a screen resolution of just 800x480, I might as well just look at the screen that comes with the camera since I'll still not be able to tell when I'm fully in focus. So, my next idea is to go with the Panasonic 8mm. It has the same f-stop and I just lose a small amount of wideness compared to my 7.5. Do you think the AF will allow me to work more efficiently and manage to finally get my shots in focus with the least amount of effort? Maybe I'm doing something wrong and just need some help with the procedure of working with a manual fisheye lens... I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
