The Olympus M.Zuiko 8mm PRO Fisheye lens represents a significant technological breakthrough. Its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is combined with a weather sealed design to allow landscape, nature and action photographers unprecedented confidence when shooting in challenging environments.
Ultra-wide Field of View
Delivering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 16mm, this ultra-wide fisheye is ideal for capturing sweeping landscapes, nightscapes, sky panoramas and shooting in confined spaces. Popular with interior and real estate photography, the ultra-wide field of view is great in confined spaces allowing you to fit more detail into the frame with a greater depth of field.
Great for Up-Close Action Shooting
Equally useful in action photography and videography the fisheye effect helps magnify the distance between objects, exaggerating the height of jumps and tricks in sports such as skateboarding, BMX, snowboarding, parkour and more.
Bright f/1.8 Maximum Aperture
The large f/1.8 aperture makes it the brightest fisheye in its class1 and delivers exceptional optical performance in a broad range of lighting conditions, especially in low-light.
2.5cm Minimum Focusing Distance
A 2.5cm minimum focusing distance equips you with additional creative versatility. Getting extremely close to your subject helps deliver better background separation and unique perspectives.
Quality Internal Lens Construction
Its internal construction consists of 5 Extra-low Distortion (ED) lenses, a Super High-Refractive (HR) lens and an aspherical lens to deliver sharp details and rich, true-to-life colour reproduction. Additionally, aberrations, distortion and colour fringing are well-controlled, delivering a professional level of detail and clarity across the entire frame.
ZERO Anti-Reflective Coating
A ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical (ZERO) coating is used to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour fidelity.
Fast, Quiet MSC Autofocusing System
Its Movie and Still Image Compatible (MSC) autofocusing system is perfect for multimedia producers. The consistent and virtually silent autofocusing performance works well for videographers, while the fast focus lock is great for action-sports and fast-moving objects.
Dust, Splash and Freeze Proof
The Olympus 8mm f/1.8 PRO Fisheye lens is dust, splash and freeze proof. Its high quality construction is designed to exceed the uncompromising expectations of the modern professional photographer, and ensure confidence inspiring reliability for years to come.
