Samyang 8mm fisheye purple cast
Jan 19, 2013

I know about the corner purple fringing on the 8mm fisheye Samyang lenses. My first lens was a 8mm 3.5 and I could see it on the corners but not in the rest of the image to an significant degree.

Got one of the new smaller 2.8 8mm fisheye Samyang lenses and there is even an overall purple cast to the rest of the image.
Note the difference in the color of gray concrete.

Just my lens or to others have this problem on a NEX7? I'm about to return it.

Top Photo is new 2.8 Samyang Fisheye and the bottom is the old 3.5 Rokinor.
