Details

The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMS CSII Lens Pentax is a wide-angle fisheye lens intended for digital reflex cameras Sony NEX using APS-C sensor. This Samyang lens provides an angle of view of 180° and will help to capture a substantial proportion of the scene.

A fish eye lens is ideally suited for shooting landscapes and architecture due to the wide viewing angle, and is perfect for artistic compositions because of the spherical distortion of the image.

A fisheye lens is exceptionally popular in landscape photography, the hemispherical effect, principally in the event of taking a picture of a landscape, will elegantly portray the curve of the Earth.

Product features:

  • The fish eye lens is ideal for landscape photography and monuments.
  • Ideal for when all of the objects are a distance from the camera.
  • Easily fit the whole image into the frame.
  • The lens body is made of high quality materials.
  • Has several layers of anti-reflective coating UMC to ensure high-quality pictures.



Thanks to the highly concave nature of the fish eye, subjects that are portrayed in the centre of the lens are blown up and enhanced. This then causes a comic and unaligned profile picture. This can be accomplished on people, wildlife, and also lifeless objects and delivers a particularly exciting focal point.

Due to the fact the Samyang fish eye lens is an extremely wide-angle lens, it’s excellent for architectural photography. Massive structures are displayed to be even much larger compared to how they look in reality, and huge towers are distorted to help to make them seem to be much bigger.

The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMS CSII Lens Pentax furthermore has a hemispherical lens, which makes it possible for a viewing angle of 180° and spherical distortion of the images, one of the great characteristics of fish-eye lenses. The lens is suitable for architectural photography, photographing landscapes along with getting in tight spots whenever  it is quite complicated to include all elements in the composition.

It is furthermore the best tool for imaginative compositions due to the fact of the spherical distortion of images. The lens supplies a minimum focusing distance of merely 0.3 meters, the lens is in addition provided with an easily-removed lens hood.

Its optics consist of 10 lens elements arranged in 7 groups, the Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMS CSII Lens Pentax optical parameters are incredibly high, as a result of the hybrid aspherical element and multi-layered anti-reflection UMC coatings.

This Samyang lens is incredibly well-known with many photography enthusiasts, users value the high optical parameters, the perfected construction and robust firm lasting quality casing.
