I must admit, my favorite is just the fisheye lens. Its made so any excessive features and use it only for shooting landscapes would be a shame. I almost always use manual focus in taking the diaphragm close enough: so I pretty much focus from the front feet to infinity. That way I can shoot blindly simply extending the arm with the camera toward the subject. This type of technique it is easily seen in the shots of extreme sports where the photographer is very close to the skater or the rider to turn.
Fisheye on the market there are various types and for all camera bodies. As for the micro four thirds, however, until now the only option was the expensive Panasonic 8mm fisheye: for it is in fact necessary for an outlay of around 700 Euro. To the rescue comes the less wealthy, however, the Polish company Samyang that starting from mid-September will be selling the Samyang 7.5mm 1:3.5 UMC Fish-eye MFT.
The lens is very compact as befits a product designed to mirrorless, and also the needle on the scale stops at only 197gr. The angle of view is 180 °: be careful not to photograph my feet literally. The focus is manual only, but as mentioned just above in this type of lens is absolutely not a problem. If you want to see some test shots found a section of the site Samyang. Oh, I forgot, price: 299 Euros, or nearly one-third of the Panasonic.
