The Samyang 8 mm f/3.5 ultra-wide angle fisheye lens is available Sony E-Mount. Its ultra-wide 180-degree (167 degrees on APS-C) field of view is great for distorting perspective and is commonly used to exaggerate amplitude in action sports photography or to simply achieve a unique and creative composition. Similar to early SLR cameras, the Samyang requires manual focusing and aperture adjustment. Thankfully, the smooth action of the focus ring and 1/2EV increments of the aperture ring make finding correct focus and exposure a breeze. Despite these two omissions, the build and optical quality of the lens is exceptional. 

Made from a combination of metal and high-quality plastics, the lens features 10 glass elements in 7 groups including one aspherical element. With outstanding centre sharpness and colour rendition, the Samyang 8mm f/3.5 ultra-wide angle fisheye lens represents excellent value for money.
