Olympus mZD 8mm f/1.8 Pro fisheye lens
- the E-M1 Mark II has an automatic fisheye correction feature for this lens creating rectilinear jpegs:
Milky Way and Great Ocean Road, Victoria - see my blog post
Milky Way, Centaurus, Magellanic Clouds and meteor and 4 planets just before sunrise at Craig's Hut.
Milky Way, Centaurus, Magellanic Clouds and meteor from my camp site atop Mt Stirling 30secs on tripod at f/1.8, ISO 3200 - optics are pretty damn good!
- released June 2015
- weatherproof PRO series fish eye lens for Micro Four Thirds system
- 8mm rectilinear fisheye (covers whole image area NOT circular)
- f/1.8 aperture makes it the fastest aperture fisheye lens available and should be great for astrophotographic landscapes of the Milky Way, observing and photographing aurora borrealis and aurora australis and underwater
- close focus 12cm
- focus by wire
- 17 elements in 15 groups, including 1 aspherical element, 3 Super ED elements, 2 ED elements, 1 'Super HR' and 2 HR elements
- 80mm long x 62mm diam
- check out the awesome aurora image and the star shapes are extremely good for such a lens, although there is some aberrations in top right corner but to my mind, it beats their Olympus m.ZD 12mm f/2.0 lens in this regard
