Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-Eye for Micro Four Thirds

March 8, 2011 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Lenses | Comment |

As noted in our Samyang booth report, the Korean lens maker has announced the development of a new, manual-focus fish-eye lens for Micro Four Thirds. As seen in the photo above, the Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC for Micro Four Thirds (right) is much smaller than the company’s existing 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC fish-eye lens (left), which is made for DSLR cameras with an APS-C sized sensor, yet it’s still capable of delivering a diagonal angle of view of 180°. Directly competing with the Panasonic Lumix G Fish-Eye 8mm f/3.5 (read review), the new Samyang lens is the first model in a new series of lenses designed specifically for compact system cameras, the company says.
