In Topic: E-PL5 with Samyang 7.5mm fisheye, Anyone?

23 March 2017 - 04:51 AM

I can't comment, but would interested if you have any feedback, as I always have the Samyang 8mm at the back of my mind as a potential solution for my Sony.  


But my instinct would be to close the aperture down to maximise DoF, and control exposure via ISO.  Then you would not have to worry so much about manual focus.  Or am I mistaken?

In Topic: Sony 16mm F2.8 with VCL-ECF2 Fisheye Converter poor corners

I've been using the VCL-ECF1 converter on my 16mm for quite a few years now, and as long as you remember to stop down, you shouldn't have too many complaints.  The alternative would be the Samyang 8mm - you lose the autofocus, but with fisheye DoF, that may be acceptable - I haven't tried it yet.
