The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood from Rokinon gives you a 167º view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical elements and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 8mm lens focuses as close as 12" (30.48 cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f/3.8 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that will offer glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting with full frame digital or 35mm cameras. 

Note: Produces a circular, vignette image on full-frame sensors or 35mm film

  • Ultra wide-angle 8mm fisheye lens with exaggerated perspective for dramatic effects
  • Ultra-wide 167º 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 or 35mm film cameras
  • Lens is constructed with hybrid aspherical elements 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
  • The petal-style lens hood can be removed so as to not interfere with the image when shooting in full frame digital or 35mm film

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.
