The 8mm Ultra Wide Angle f/3.5 Fisheye Lens from Rokinon gives you a 180° view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 8mm manual focus lens focuses as close as 1' (30.48 cm) from the lens, and has a built-in petal lens hood.

Note: Produces a vignetted image on full-frame sensors or 35mm film

  • Ultra wide-angle 8mm fisheye lens with exaggerated perspective and approximately 180° angle of view, for dramatic effects
  • Ultra-wide 180° diagonal field-of-view for APS-C size image formats--will produce a rounded image that doesn't cover the entire frame when used with compatible full frame digital cameras
  • Manual focus lens with no electronic connections to the camera for automatic focus nor metering.
  • Lens is constructed with hybrid aspherical lenses for outstanding, sharply defined images
  • Lens features super multi-layer coating to reduce flare and ghost images
  • Lens has a minimum focusing distance of 12" (30.48 cm) for enhanced close-up shots
  • Lens includes a built-in petal-type lens hood

1. Rokinon MTF charts use theoretical equations to plot performance and do not rely on subjective 
opinion, subject matter, camera features, software or other factors. They plot the contrast and resolution of a lens from the center to its edges, against a "perfect" lens that would transmit 100% of the light that passes through it. The contrast of a lens is important because it directly relates to resolution.

3. Rokinon tests are carried out with the lens at its maximum (widest) aperture (Ex. 24mm F1.4 lens is measured at F1.4 for MTF).

4. Zero on the chart’s X-axis (horizontal axis) 
represents the center of the lens. As a line moves right, it indicates the change of contrast and sharpness from the center to the edge of the image. 

5. The Y-axis (vertical axis) plots the transmission of light through the lens. It has a maximum value of "1.0" to indicate 100% transmittance of the light, which is not possible to achieve. 

6. The blue graph lines (10 lines/mm) represent contrast measurement. The red graph lines (30 lines/mm) represent resolution.

7. Sagittal lines (thick lines) represent the contrast 
measurements of line pairs that are parallel to an imaginary diagonal line that runs from the bottom left hand corner to the top right hand corner of a image frame. Meridonial lines (thin lines) represent line pairs that are perpendicular to the imaginary diagonal line.

8. The higher and straighter the blue lines, the better the contrast. The higher and straighter the red lines, the better the resolution.
