iZugar 3.25mm f/2.5 Fisheye released
#1

220 degrees ... impressive.

Not a mention of degrees in the blurb!

There was another company doing up to 260 degree fisheyes. I couldn't find it anymore, however, but I could find this:

The company I tried to find also did 2 more fisheyes. I'll try and find a link. The entapano fisheyes are crazily expensive.

 

Kind regards, Wim

Hmm, maybe it was Entaniya, if you look at B&H:

There are different options for different FLs, and it appears to have the same front element group.

On MFT, the image is always cut-off above 3.0 mm, however.

 

I wonder how this is with the iZugar, as this is a 3.2 mm lens Smile

 

Kind regards, Wim

 

P.S.: For a very cheap 180 degree fisheye, there is this for those who'd liek to experiment with fisheye:

I was already wondering whether to review the Pixco. However, the IQ seems to be really bad.

I purchased the Meike 6.5mm Ultra Wide f/2.0 Circular Fisheye Lens earlier this year. Has 190 degrees fov. Hard to keep my feet out of those pictures. Seems well made and sharp. And a good bit cheaper then this one. My only problem with using the lens is finding good subjects.

It's not about finding a subject but about not repeating yourself and ending with pictures that look alike. Any subject is good for fisheye just look for lines and curves that would allow you to frame well. Using a fisheye is a very rewarding experience. Of the five last weddings I did less than 1% of the pictures were taken with a fisheye, and in each and every wedding out of 2 or three pictures to be printed in large format there was a fisheye photo chosen by the couple

Well, it has to be the oddest FL/aperture combo I've seen in a lens... for a good while. Smile

I was just thinking: What a waste of already small sensor area...  :ph34r:

Same as with the Sigma 4.5mm f/2.8 really... (though I'd like to try it once for a laugh).

I'm not much a fan of circular fisheyes. Diagonal ones, on the other hand, are a good thing to use. I would get the Canon 8-15L (that my wife covets anyway) not because it has the circular option, but because neither of us use a full-frame camera, and the zoom lens has those precious intermediate settings workable on any of the smaller formats.
