My favourite lens for bazaars and rural markets in sunny Oe-Cusse
This is a great lens if you are into taking pictures of crowded markets. If you happen to have scheduled a trip to Southeast Asia and plan to visit traditional markets and fairs this lens is a must. You can move easily through the crowds and snap pictures. I love this lens. I do keep on opening the lens cap when I put the camera back on the bag as it does not take much to go from closed to open. Other than that super cool lens to have, small, light and fun

No-brainer for a different perspective
This is a lens that I use very rarely but it offers such a different perspective that I enjoy using it all the time. Whether its for the fish-eye distortion, the ultra-wide selfies, or the ultra-wide field of view (correcting the distortion in post-processing), this lens is always a joy to use. It's not particularly sharp. The f8 aperture is rather limiting. And the manual focus lever isn't exactly easy to focus with. But the small package and price make this lens a no-brainer purchase and everyday carry.

Better than the 15mm body cap lens
WAY better than the 15mm body cap lens. I hate fish-eye lenses and would not pay for one if my life depended on it. However, you bundle fish-eye with a body cap and you have a happy customer in me. It is fastly superior to the 15mm body cap lens at $50. Is this lens worth the $125 price tag? Maybe wait for a sale. If you are on a budget and you need a fish-eye this is the way to go. Much better than shelling out $1000 for a fisheye lens.

Small Lens Very Useful
Like the 140 degree format. Only fixed f/8 but works great in good light. Even have goo night images from it when I can shoot a slow shutter speed. A sleeper lens. I keep it on my PM2 or PL/7 when I want to pocket the camera for a long walk or a hike. I carry the 17 f/2.8 or 14-42 in pocket, add the 40-150 if I take a vest and have everything I need. Such a small package with this lens. Fisheye images are so much fun! Image quality is better than expected and center is very sharp. Not cheap for a little fixed f/8 body cap lens but still only $100 and worth it for the fun you can have with it. I have a 7.5mm fish eye - a full 180 degree f/3.5-f/16 lens but its much bigger and heavier. I take it with me when I have a case but for light duty walking around this 9mm fisheye is great!

Exceptional value Fisheye
An economical may to get a fisheye lens. It compliments my 12-40 F2.8 PRO that I use as my primary lens. The F8 aperture is not an issue as the lens would would have been stopped down for depth of field if I were using a super wide zoom. There is only minimal barrel distortion, less than I expected at the cost of the lens. I did not find the opening mechanism a problem as there is an indent that allows almost infinite depth of field The camera and lens are now compact enough to fit in a pocket. It will be perfect for street shooting in travel situations where it is unwise to advertise an expensive camera and still get better than point and shoot quality.
