Brilliantly Captures the View
With it's 10 Elements
Do your photographs seem, like, maybe a little blah recently? Are your videos lacking a certain-pizzazz? To change perspectives, take a peak through your viewfinder with this Lumix G 8mm/F3.5 Fisheye Lens attached to your camera. Encompassing a mount for Micro Four Thirds and a 180° viewing angle, the world turns into a very diverse place.
Meanwhile this fisheye which is full-frame brilliantly captures the view with it's 10 elements within 9 groups (1 being an ED lens) to lessen any chromatic aberrations and also distortion, additionally minimizing ghost and flare with it's multi-coatings, plus a stepping motor allowing smooth and stealth focusing (especially fantastic with movies).
When mounted on a G Micro System Panasonic camera, the lens functions using full contrast AF, framing as near as 4 inches. a seven bladed aperture shows off a rounded character that creates an attractive smooth look in areas that are out-of-focus (the famous and mysterious bokeh). Gel filters may be employed on the rear lens element providing even more creative effects. Effectively the smallest and Lightest weight Interchangeable Digital Fisheye Lens in the world.
Including ten lenses within nine groups, this lens features an outstanding condensation, by benefitting from Micro Four Thirds designs to accomplish dramatic downsizing to become the smallest size and lightest weight lens in the world*. By adopting an extra-low dispersion (ED) lens results in a
stabilized descriptive accomplishment from close-up through infinity cutting down on chromatic aberrations and distortions. The nearest focusing distance becomes as few as 0.1m, although, the Panasonic G Fisheye also uses inner focus which allows a lengthy working distance and photographers do not need to be closer to a subject even for those close-up images.
The 8mm / F3.5 has the ability of using the fast and precise contrast AF system when attached to a LUMIX G Micro camera, allowing more relaxed and
pleasurable photography. The lens also includes a very reliable metal lens mount
and an optimally engineered lens hood allows photographers to shoot even in

A fisheye lens is a wide-angle lens that takes in an extremely wide, hemispherical image. Originally
developed for use in meteorology to study cloud formation and called "whole-sky lenses", fisheye lenses quickly became popular in general photography for their unique, distorted appearance. They are often used by photographers shooting broad landscapes to suggest the curve of the Earth. Hemispherical photography is used for various scientific purposes to study plant canopy geometry and to calculate near-ground solar radiation.
The first types of fisheye lenses to be developed were "circular fisheyes" — lenses which take in a 180° hemisphere and project this as a circle within the film frame. Some circular fisheyes
are available in orthographic projection models for scientific applications. These have a 180° vertical angle of view, and the horizontal and diagonal angle of view are also 180°. Most circular fisheye lenses cover a smaller image circle than rectilinear lenses, so the corners of the frame will be completely dark.
