Which Fisheye For m43?
Dec 12, 2012

My new GH-2 + 12-35/2.8 is on the way from B&H.

So tonight I was looking at the fisheye lenses available for m43 and on B&H's website they list all the 7.5mm f/3.5's from Bower, Samyang, and Rokinon - they are obviously the same lens just with a different name on them - as well as the 8mm from Panasonic.

So, which is the better lens regarding sharpness across the frame, CA, and ghosting/flare - The 7.5mm f/3.5 from Samyang/Rokinon/Bower or the Panasonic 8mm?

If it's the 7.5mm, does it make a difference which name is on the lens other than aesthetics? Will on of the three be better for warranty issues?

Thanks -

John
