The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Fish Eye Lens is a wide angle lens for Pentax DSLR cameras with APS-C and full-frame sensor. Fisheye lenses are beneficial as it’s significantly less challenging to create a super wide angle fisheye when compared to a super wide angle rectilinear lens, as a result a fisheye lens will probably be far more cost-effective than its rectilinear equivalent.
