    Yes, it could work, but wouldn't give you the 220deg. field of view you would have on a 35mm camera. IIRC, it was the widest fisheye made to date, and people reported problems of their feet being in the frame (220deg means it sees behind itself!!). Definately high up on the rarity meter.

    Of course an adapter would work, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you aren't really serious. :smile:

    Looks like an interesting lens, I'd say it's well worth getting a metabones speed booster to go with it, not worth scimping on the adapeter here!

    Unfortunatley my second mortgage application was immediately vetoed, so I won't be trying it.

    I'd be concerned about how this lens would impact the pocket-ability of my E-PM1. Has anyone tried it? :rolleyes:

    With that 220° AOV I'm curious how one stabilizes it without getting your tripod legs in every shot.

    Easy, aim the lens up. Fisheye lenses were apparently originally designed for studying he sky, being capable of photographing the entire sky in one shot.

    Th creative uses to which they are put today are just fortunate side lines.

    I saw an article on this thing when it was getting cleaned. I sure wouldn't mind having one.
