The Olympus Zuiko 8 mm f/3.5 Fish-Eye, pic's

With the Olympus 8 mm f/3.5 FE lens you can use it on the Olympus E-5 and whatever is coming next in a 4/3 DSLR. It will always fit the m4/3 cameras and for UWA you're rearely concerned about fast focus. You could set a FE lens for infinity and never change it all day, so shoot in manual focus. It's got a 180 degree view on the diagonal (a little less on the horizontal and vertical axis). The optics are superb and it focuses very closely. Close focus has a lot of significance and applications for FE photos. For that you need to focus again, but usually you're not going for fast focus, so m4/3 still works well with it.
