The Panasonic LUMIX G FISHEYE 8 mm / F3.5 offers a diagonal angle of view of 180-degrees, bringing a distinctive perspective and unique deformation effect. It gives photos and movies an extraordinary view to add an impressive look to your story for TV contents, films and web movies.
Comprising ten lenses in nine groups, the new lens system features an outstanding compactness, taking advantage of the Micro Four Thirds system standard to achieve dramatic downsizing to the world’s smallest and lightest size. The adoption of an ED lens achieves a stable descriptive performance from close-up to infinity minimizing chromatic aberration and distortion.
The closest focusing distance is as short as 0.1m, however, the LUMIX G FISHEYE 8mm / F3.5 incorporates an inner focus system which enables a long working distance and users do not have to come closer to the subject even for close-up shots.
The new LUMIX G FISHEYE 8mm / F3.5 lens allows use of the high-speed and accurate contrast AF system when mounted on LUMIX G Micro System cameras, for more comfortable and enjoyable shooting. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. Also, a sheet filter such as a gelatin filter can be inserted in the rear of the unit.
The inclusion of a stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and movie recording. The lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance. The optimally designed lens hood enables use even under strong sunlight.
