Rokinon 8mm Fisheye Review
Not too many people know about this little hidden gem which is a Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens, actually Rokinon is the brand of the lens itself; the company that produces these lenses is called Samyang. But I’ll tell you what for the money you will not find a better deal. These lens are built to last, metal housing and great glass packed inside. But please note this is a manual lens. This might or might not be a big deal to you, but I actually don’t mind it. With a $299.99 price tag you definitely get your money’s worth especially compared to the $699.00 that canon and Nikon charge for their version of the fisheye lens. The Rokinon makes a full range lenses, so if you’re looking for a nice piece of glass but don’t want to break the bank. Give them a look. I would definitely buy another lens from them. Below are a couple shots taken with my Rokinon 8mm Fisheye, with a little HDR editing of course. Have a good day and I hope I gave you a little something that might be useful.
