Samyang 8mm f3.5 HD Fisheye Lens for Canon

The Samyang 8mm f3.5 HD Fisheye Lens for Canon gives you a 167° view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 8mm lens focuses as close as 12″ (30.48 cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f3.5 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that provides glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting at full frame digital or 35mm.

Note: Produces a circular, vignette image on full-frame sensors or 35mm film

  • Ultra wide-angle 8mm fisheye lens with exaggerated perspective for dramatic effects
  • Ultra-wide 167° diagonal field-of-view for APS-C size image formats–will produce a rounded image that doesn’t cover the entire frame when used with compatible full frame digital cameras or 35mm film cameras
  • Lens is constructed with hybrid aspherical lenses for outstanding, sharply defined images
  • Lens features super multi-layer coating to reduce flare and ghost images
  • Lens has a minimum focusing distance of 12″ (30.48 cm) for enhanced close-up shots
  • The petal-style lens hood can be removed so as to not interfere with the image when shooting in full frame digital format or 35mm film. (vignetting)

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II Verdict

Even if you discount the fact that this 8mm fisheye is a high quality lens, available for under half the price of equivalents from other manufacturers, this is a very interesting lens. It is capable of producing images with excellent sharpness, the build quality is good, and the removable hood adds extra flexibility, allowing the lens to be used as a partial circular fisheye on full frame cameras. Even the lack of autofocus shouldn’t put you off this lens, as the depth of field available with a fisheye, makes focusing manually incredibly easy.

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II Pros

Outstanding sharpness in the centre when stopped down
Good build quality
Removable hood
Stereographic projection

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II Cons

Slightly better performance at maximum aperture would’ve made this a great lens, rather than a very good one


The Samyang 8mm f/3.5 UMC Fish-eye CS II is capable of producing images with excellent sharpness.
