Samyang 8mm Fisheye - A-type lens?
Dec 18, 2013


a friend of mine bought the Samyang Fisheye with Canon mount. This lens has no automatic aperture, i. e. when stopped down to f/8 you are looking into a darf view finder.

In a user review at amazon I read, that the version 1 with Pentax mount is an A-type lens, so metering and flash will work with a bright view finder.

3 Questions:

- is version 2 also an A-type lens?

- what are the differences between the 2 lenses in general?

- is the difference between the Sigma 8-16 @ 8mm to this lens worth 300€?

Yes, OK, I confess: that LBA strikes again...

Have a nice day
