    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.

The full picture
Extremely sharp when stopped down corner to corner. With such a wide angle of view and close focus ability, the limit of this lens is up to the limits of your imagination. The 8mm Focal length fish eye can be difficult to use in the beginning but once you have this on your camera and start shooting you can come up with some very interesting angles and capture everything in front of you or something very up close to yield a perspective that's very seldom seen. It's best paired with an OMD em 1 mkii and its built in defishing algorithms, this lens will be unleashed. With an aperture of F1.8 your night sky images will be low noise and cause less star trailing while capturing a full bodied milkyway unless there's a lot of light pollution. For such a wide angle its very compact and light. It can be paired with smaller bodies too.

Easy to use, great build quality.
Possibly the the most fun I have had with an ultra wide. This fisheye gives you a whole new perspective. Its easy to use, and has fantastic build quality. Works perfect for sweeping landscapes and tight spaces. Also a joy for night photography.

Great lens for those wanting to step outside the lines!
Great lens! Like others have mentioned, this is not an everyday lens. In fact, I think some people can overdo it with a fisheye, But for certain shots, it's a must! Very sharp lens, providing a unique perspective of your subjects. Also, you can achieve some seriously wide angle landscape shots with minimal distortion when you line up the horizon in the center of your frame. Size is perfect. Much smaller than the original 4/3 version. You won't be disappointed.
