    I may be picking one up in the next few days. A hard time choosing between this and the 7-14 Pro...

    Grid, your pictures are reminding me how much fun I had shooting the Samyang... What are you doing for de-fishing? (I see a few seem de-fished).

    I´m just using the slider in Camera raw.

    Tha samyang was fun and great value for youre money, this is alittle bit more fun in all aspects i think, but it comes at a price.

  8. Anyone using one for underwater photography yet? Very interested to see how it handles there.

    Yeah, sold it off to help fund my next lens, the idea was for it to be this one, but there are 3 pro lenses I want!!! I think I will settle for this though, I have really enjoyed shooting with the fisheye view.
    I plan to. Will shortly pull the trigger on a Nauticam housing for the E-M1, along with strobes and ports for the fisheye and for the 60mm macro. Shame the 7-14 and fisheye can't use the same port...

    My very uninspiring first shots. Just picked it up, and decided to just give it a quick run...

    These are some great images!

    I can't justify buying this lens for myself, but I look forward to seeing more interesting and unique images here.

    Agreed!

    Grid - you have a very good eye for composition with the Fisheye, I'm still getting a handle on it, and have actually spent most of my time her ein Taiwan using it exclusively - for better or worse. I figure it's the best way to get myself used to it!
