Do your photos seem, oh, maybe a little humdrum lately? Do your videos lack a certain je ne sais quoi--pizzazz, in other words? For a different perspective, take a look through this Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm/F3.5 Lens with a Micro Four Thirds mount.
With a 180° angle of view, the world is a very different place. And this full-frame Fisheye lens captures that view brilliantly with 10 elements in 9 groups (1 ED lens) to minimize chromatic aberration and distortion, multi-coating to minimize ghosts and flare, and a stepping motor for smooth and silent focusing (especially helpful with video).
When used with a Panasonic G Micro System camera, the lens operates with full contrast auto focus, focusing as close as 4". Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas (the famous and elusive bokeh). Sheet filters such as gels may be used on the rear element for more creative options.
