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.

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

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...

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!
