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

Thanks for this great thread.

I wanted the Samyang for a long time but always found some more conventional lens to spend the money on. The examples here (and in related threads) on fisheye lenses, and the explanations given on de-fishing with references to some tools, made me interested again. It looks like a new field to experiment.

One thing I didn't understand (have to admit I didn't read all posts in these threads) is why there's a difference in the field of view between the Oly and Samyang, given that both lenses are advertized as 180 degrees.
