Re: A "Fisheye" Question If You don't Mind

It's a nice light lens, cheap, and the 12mm fisheye focal length is sufficiently different from the 8mm Samyang.

I wonder if you took shots with the 8 mm Samyang and used the optical zoom on the NEX-6 (and presumably other NEX cameras) set to a +.5X would the results be the same as if you had used a 12 mm Fisheye?

Crop some pics from the 8mm and find out.

And how would I know how that same picture would look if it were taken with a 12 mm fisheye lens?
