Lens Description

The Samyang 8mm F/2.8 UMC Fisheye is an ultra-wide prime designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This bright prime has a 8mm focal-length. It provides the same field of view as a 12mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This prime can focus down to 30cm from the imaging plane. The lens is not capable of autofocus and so the focus-distance must always be manually adjusted via the focus-ring.

This version has a Fujifilm X lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Fujifilm X mount cameras. Samyang also made this lens available for Sony E mounts.
