About Rokinon HD8M-C 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens:
Introducing Rokinon’s latest fisheye lens for Canon, boasting new and improved features not available in their highly-rated 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens. This lens features high definition (HD) optics and glass, delivering clear and sharp images. It also comes with a removable hood, making it easier to use on full-frame cameras. While it is primarily designed for APS-C sensors, full-frame users can now use it without the hood. When used on APS-C cameras such as the Canon 60D, 7D, and T3i, the pictures will fill the entire frame or screen, providing a unique perspective. On full-frame cameras like the Canon 5D, the lens produces pictures with a semi-circular image, creating a dramatic effect, with close-up shots appearing proportionately large.
This ultra-wide-angle 8mm fisheye lens offers an exaggerated perspective, producing dramatic effects, and is equipped with manual focus. Its ultra-wide 167º diagonal field-of-view is ideal for APS-C size image formats, and the lens is constructed with hybrid aspherical elements that result in outstanding, sharply defined images. It has a minimum focusing distance of 12 inches (30.48 cm), perfect for enhancing close-up shots. Additionally, the lens features improved HD optics for sharper images and a super multi-layer coating that reduces flare and ghost images.
With an aperture range of F3.5 to F22, the lens provides flexibility in shooting, and its minimum focusing distance of 11.8 inches (0.3m) ensures that you can capture detailed images of subjects up close. The lens is compatible with a 67mm filter size, allowing for various creative filters to be attached for more unique images. It is also equipped with six diaphragm blades and a robust optical construction of ten glass elements in seven groups.
In summary, Rokinon’s latest fisheye lens for Canon offers exceptional build quality and performance, coupled with straightforward ease of use for photographers of all levels. With high-definition optics, a removable hood, and an ultra-wide 167º diagonal field-of-view, it is an ideal lens for capturing dramatic and unique perspectives. Its compatibility with APS-C and full-frame cameras, improved HD optics, and a super multi-layer coating, make it an excellent choice for both amateur and professional photographers looking for a high-quality fisheye lens.
