    I find the compactness suspect. Since they claim 180 degrees fov but the front lens element is flatter than the Pana 7-14, I have the strong feeling that it will vignette terribly.

    I think the glass isn't the final glass going into it. It looks more like a mockup kind of prototype than a working prototype. Else, I'd imagine, there would be a few sample pics.

    I am not really interested in this lens - but I do like the idea that they are making the lens for m4/3 and it is not just a remounted full frame lens. I hope they do that with all future m4/3 and then I could become very interested.

    If this lens is going to be of the same quality level as the 85/1.4, then, we'll be in for a thread !
    I'm looking forward to this lens !

    I have the 8mm in 4/3 mount which is a much larger lens. (They also sell it with a micro 4/3 adapter).

    This new lens looks much smaller and yes it's probably a mock-up.

    I would definitely go for this. If it has as much bang for the buck, as the other Samyangs…

    Now I have Peleng 8mm f3.5. It's ok, but big. Maybe a bit soft wide open, as expected. But it gives a larger diagonal FOV than the current Samyang… about 175 °

    Has anyone compared the Peleng and the Samyang?
