Brighter. Faster. Sharper.
Explore exciting creative possibilities and create never-before-seen images with the new M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 fisheye PRO (16mm 35mm equivalent) – the world’s first fisheye with an extremely bright f1.8 maximum aperture. The super-fast shutter speeds this lens supports let you apply interesting fisheye effects in low-light conditions (underwater, nighttime), yet it delivers the same amazing edge-to-edge sharpness as other Olympus PRO series lenses.

    HIGH PERFORMANCE

    M.Zuiko PRO lenses are built for the highest level of performance, incorporating fast apertures and weathersealed construction.

    • 180° OF CREATIVE SHOOTING

      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.

    • SEALED FOR PERFECTION

      For such a sophisticated piece of photographic equipment, the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye is surprisingly rugged.

    • GO EVEN WIDER

      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).

    180° OF CREATIVE SHOOTING

    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. The M.Zuiko PRO 8mm Fisheye, with a full 180° view, allows you to do just that. And it’s lightweight and portable enough to throw in your camera bag without a second thought.

    UNPARALLELED 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.

Sweet sharpness and wide aperture for Starscapes

Super sharp. Awesome lens for starscapes. You can really reach into the heavens with this lens . The 1.8 aperture and wide angle allow for a lot of light to reach the sensor. The fisheye adds an interesting creative look.

All in all, this is very versatile and very fun lens.

For a good while I shot with third party fisheye, 2 stops slower and non-weather sealed. I was telling myself that this was a specialty lens, I had an excellent 7-14/2.8 for other ultra-wide needs, so it had to suffice. Then at one of Olympus events I got a chance to handle FE 8/1.8 and all self-convincing came to a crashing end. The lens is just that great. Being a little larger than third party one, it's still quite small. 1.8 aperture makes it incredible for astro photography and, surprisingly, for some unusual close-up shots with blurry background. Ease of turning the image into rectilinear on latest bodies just adds to versatility. Play a bit with lens positioning and angles, and you'll discover amazing versatility of distortions or lack of them to make an image uniquely suited for your vision and your subject <br /> <br />All in all, this is very versatile and very fun lens.

Fun rectilinear fisheye, always goes along.

I already had the 7-14 Pro when I added the 8mm Fisheye after seeing the images others were getting. The lenses are so different, and both get used a lot. As you get to know the angles and positioning, this lens can be as distorted as you want, or quite rectilinear, particularly as you move your vertical position up and down. With the optional in-body fisheye correction on the M1ii you can get 3 different lens angles besides the fisheye effect. If this were a full circular fisheye I wouldn’t want it. It’s very small and easy to put in a pocket to bring along when your bag is full of other gear! Like all the Pro lenses, the weather sealing and focus clutch are very useful. The front glass is less bulbous than the 7-14 and seems easier to keep clean. Obviously can’t use any filter with it as you can with adapters for the 7-14. Very sharp and tons of depth of field as you would expect.
