Laowa 4mm fisheye - losing the top and bottom edges

I recently bought a used Laowa 4mm fisheye, and it's super weird and fun. Looking closer at my photos, I noticed the top and bottom are getting cut off so the full circle effect is lost there. I get the same result with an E-M10.ii and E-M1.ii.

I found a review online where the reviewer was using a pre-release version of the lens, and he was having this problem with his still images. He said Laowa was going to fix it before it released. Then I saw another review that showed images with the same issue. I'm thinking it wasn't just an early release issue.

Anyone have this lens in MFT and having this problem? I hate to think there's some setting I'm missing in the camera...

Thanks.

Don
