    Just over 90 minutes remain on the lightning deal at the moment I post this.

    This lens normally goes for $269, so pretty good deal. Checking various sites for reviews, most people are very positive about it's ability/value. It should be noted though that there is no electrical connection, you have to set the camera to shoot without lens, and put in Aperture mode & manipulate aperture/focus manually.

    p.s. If you have a Chase Freedom card, charge it to that and get an extra 5% ($10.50) off -- assuming you have activated your quarterly cashback promotion & haven't already bought $1500 of stuff with it at amazon!

    Nice deal. I had a fisheye once, on my DSLR, and really didn't care for it. Any reason to think it will be better in m4/3s? In other words, can you talk me in to this deal? :)

    Sorry, but I've never had one. My motivation is to use this opportunity to try one out and see if I like it. This is by far the cheapest fisheye for MFT out there from what I've read/seen (the lumix 8mm one is 300% of this current $210 price), and the quality is frequently praised, though some do say there is a bit of variance in that. But if you've already tried a fisheye, that argument won't work for you :)

    smoking awesome deal for this lens.

    I'm leaving m4/3 for the most part, but I'll keep a body just for this lens.

    Yeah, you can't beat the price. Unless I'm mixing up lenses in my head these regularly sell for more than $210 used.

    Here is a nice review, also another one here, both with sample images. I was reading up to make sure I wanted to let the order stand; I do. Half hour left.
