    Stand still and look straight ahead. Now look to your left and right – and imagine being able to capture a photograph that presents this panoramic perspective.

OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

    The sophisticated, performance-proven design of the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm Fisheye’s lens architecture (17 elements in 15 groups) dramatically reduces, chromatic and comatic aberration. Its proprietary ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating virtually eliminates ghosts and flares from backlit scenes. And its precision optics maintains pin-point sharp resolution right up to the edges of the frame – even at a wide-open f1.8 aperture.

  • SEALED FOR PERFECTION

    For such a sophisticated piece of photographic equipment, the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye is surprisingly rugged. There’s no need to baby it – with weather-sealing in five separate locations, you’re the only one who has to worry about rain, wind and dirt…and it’s even freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C). Imagine your best nature shots from a striking fisheye perspective!

  • SHOOT WITH THE FISHES

    Where else would be more appropriate to take a fisheye lens but...underwater! The PPO-EP02 dome port available for the M.Zuiko 8mm f1.8 PRO lens lets you go eye-to-eye with the denizens of the deep and bring back cool shots to prove it. The dome port is compact and designed to maximize the lens performance whether you're shooting over/unders, macros or just hanging around the reef.

    *PPO-EP02 is compatible with the E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II Underwater housings.

  • USE THE 8MM FISHEYE AS AN ULTRA WIDE 4.5MM LENS

    Using the “Fisheye Correction” function in Olympus Viewer 3 v1.5, users can correct the distortion created by the fisheye lens to get an ultra-wide angle photo with an approximate view-angle of 9mm (35mm equivalent). The superior optical design of the 8mm fisheye lens offers minimal deterioration of image quality in the corners of the image. The fisheye Correction feature of  Olympus Viewer 3 is also compatible with 40MP High Resolution Shot images.

Allows for unique perspectives
I really love the f/1.8 aperture. This lens is great for taking unusual shots and being creative. And its image quality is wonderful as well.

Favorite Micro Four Thirds Lens
I've had a few fisheye lenses and was attracted to this one because of the speed and overall IQ. Let me get this out of the way- it's the best fisheye I've ever owned. It's now one of my...no, correction....it is my favorite micro four thirds lens. It's incredibly sharp across the frame. The contrast is excellent and the overall color rendition is just sublime. I can't get over how sharp it is and if you're shooting up close it gets even better. The sharp transition from in focus to out of focus is superb. It's also easy to defish either in lighroom or using the warp tool in photoshop. It'll give you wider pictures than either 7-14mm M43 lens or the 9-18mm. It's also much better than the 9-18mm in terms of contrast, corner sharpness and resolution. I know as I own that lens and the panasonic 7-14mm. This is better although they all have their place. I've enjoyed the thoughtful touches built into this lens as well. For one, the focusing ring has the perfect amount of resistance without to long of a throw. The focusing rib design is just perfect as it doesn't attract dust, is easy to clean but still provides enough texture for your fingers. I think it's brilliant. I've taken this lens outdoors for panoramic like shots of rivers and mounts in my area. I've also used it most recently at Yale Museum of Art and got some of my best pictures of the year with this lens. All handheld- and I never had to go above 250 ISO. I've done nighttime photography handheld..even down to 1.5 seconds...without any blur. I was just taking shots like this last night for Halloween while walking around the neighborhood with my kid. You really don't know what your missing until you've tried this. This lens is now getting more rotation into my camera bag then any other lens. You really...and I mean REALLY...need to give this lens a chance. It's pretty much optical perfection.

Awesome lens
I've always loved the unique effects and perspectives that a fisheye lens offers, but I've been without one since I switched from film to digital many years ago. I absolutely LOVE this 8mm 1.8 lens. I find myself taking it with me everywhere and using it on just about every photo outing. Landscape shots are amazing with the ability to capture close-up objects as well as the entire countryside in the shot. This lens, coupled with the AIR, makes for some very fun and funky shots that would be impossible with any other lens and body.
