Olympus m.zuiko 8mm f1,8 Pro Fisheye lens

Recommended Posts

Hello!

i would be interested in the new 8mm pro Olympus lens to use with Nauticam and the E-M1.

I bought the lens but it doesn't fit with my Zen DP-170 n85 II, the integrated extension is to long. Now i wonder if the lens is that much better for underwater use? Is it possible to use the f1,8 with results that are useable? Beforei buy the 20mm extension for the 4,33"and maybe also for a new to buy DP-170 n85 i want to know if it is worth it!

Has somebody taken images unterwater with f1,8-2,5 and willin to show them? Can somebody report his expieriences?

Thanks, best regards Armin

Hi Armin

I bought this lens 3 months ago and use it with a Zen 25mm extension ring (for PEN housings) and a 4 inch dome. Inside the housing is the Oly EPL5. Without the extension I use the older Lumix 8 mm fish eye and the same dome. The UW results look not so different from those taken with the Lumix. Take a look at the testsection of www.albertkokuw.nl for some preliminary results..

Good luck! Albert
