    This should be fine as is on m4/3. Looks like it is the same as the samayang fisheye.

    That one looks like it's the APS-C Samyang fisheye, but with gearing for video focus rigs. The dSLR version could have an mft mount added and be compatible with mft. And if you need the gearing, that's probably your best option. But the best fit for mft is the 7.5mm mft lens you'll see listed here. And it's this latter lens used in the sample gallery on this board (you could search that thread for OM-D/GH3 and see if purple blobs appear).

    The dSLR and mft fisheyes are two different designs, with the SLR lens being significantly larger, and slightly less fishy, since it maps stereographically, not as equisolid.

    Samyang makes the lenses, but they get rebranded by all the generics, so it's the same lens whether it's labeled as Samyang, Rokinon, Opteka, Bower, Phoenix, Walimex, Pro-Optic, or Vivitar, etc. etc.
