The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Asph IF MC Fisheye CSII DH for Canon is an ultra wide angle fisheye lens for Canon EF mount such as EOS DSLRs with cropped sensors. This is the CS II version - optically the same as the standard CS version with detachable (DH) lens hood. The lens is designed for digital SLRs with an APS-C sized sensor, giving a 180 degree field of view. It is a “full frame” diagonal fisheye lens for APS-C DSLRs, meaning that the image it produces fills the frame on APS-C cameras. It produces an immense field of view - 180 degrees on 1.5x crop sensors, or on 1.6x crop sensors such as Canon EOS APS-C DSLRs produces 167 degrees. If used on full frame cameras, it produces a vignetted image, which is almost circular with the lens hood detached. This effect is required for user wanting the biggest image / field of view for panoramic software on full frame cameras.
Fisheye lenses are also popular for special effects use where distortion and field curvature, exaggerated perspective, or extreme depth of field are desired.
The Samyang 8 mm fisheye lens features multicoated optics, 10 Elements in 7 Groups with 1 aspherical lens element and offers some of the best optics in a lens for its class, and exceptional value for money. A specialist lens, affordable to every photographer.
