Not for handgrip enthusiasts ?

Optical quality is OK not excellent (as expected); lightweight (as expected); not too expensive (as expected). It's a lens for fun images, creativity and an extension of the normal fisheye repertoire.
But what wasn't expected is that the 210 degree field of view includes the handgrip on OM-D cameras - maybe not what you want.
Getting your fingers in the way can be irritating too but a bit of practice (or use of timer) and you can avoid that !
So: This lens is only suitable for mFT cameras without a handgrip (e.g. most of the compacts). Sure, you can mask the handgrip in PP but good PP on a circular fisheye image is not that easy, so that's not a solution for everyday photos.
