    Hi everyone. I have an odd problem with my new Samyang 7.5 Fisheye. I have two Oly bodies, an E-P2 and an E-PL3. On the E-P2 it seems I'm getting close to 170-180 degrees angle of view. On the E-PL3 it is definitely narrower, maybe even closer to 100 degrees field of view. Is there some explanation for this or some setting to change this on the E-PL3? Anybody else with this type of experience?

    Thanks in advance for any advice/info!

    Possibly could it be the aspect ratio of the LCD on your e-pl3? Or the. Aspect ratio you've set is different than that of your e-p2. Just a guess...

    Thought of that too, they're both at 4:3rds.... Everything I check seems to be the same on both, although there is certainly a lot to check! Something I'm missing??

    I'm not certain, someone like Ned maybe able to confirm or negate...the e-pl3 screen is 16:9 ratio while e-p2 is not. Are you finding the same issue if you compare both camera shots on a monitor?

    Post some screenshots of both so we can compare. Make sure the EXIF data is intact.

    Could it be that your E-PL3 has the digital zoom enabled?
    It happened to me with the 14-42.

    I am using this lens on my PL3 with no issues.
