Re: Comparing Fish-Eyes : Rokinon 7.5mm vs Zuiko 8mm (FOV and look)

Just thought people might be interested to see how I use the Rokinon. For landscapes I'll often take the shot with the horizon along the mid-line (use the guide-lines) and then crop to get the panoramic picture you visualized  You don't need to de-fish the image and it remains v. sharp. It doesn't always 'work', but I've got some great shots. I take this lens out with me on a GF3 even if I've also got my FF Canon (and that's lighter than a FF fisheye alone).
