i use the 7.5mm Samyang FE MFT on my E-PL1 and it takes some pretty decent shots in the precision dome port for the panny 8mm. apples and oranges, i know, but learning to work the samyang has made me less "needy" to get the AF panny 8mm FE.

Also, one can simply check the focus distance in the EXIF data for those using the Nauticam 4.33" dome port. It will vary from system to system, with DSLRs showing greater focus distances, due to the greater distance from the entrance pupil to the sensor plane (one of the advantages of mirrorless systems is that this distance is reduced making for much thinner bodies and simpler wide-angle lens design (which tends to further decrease this distance). For Micro Four Thirds a check of the EXIF data with the Panasonic 8mm fisheye shows focus distance from 0.115m (nearly touching dome) to 0.215m (infinity).
