Leading compact system camera lens manufacturing company Samyang announces a new line of 8mm F2.8 fisheye lenses for Sony NEX series mirrorless cameras. The Samyang 8mm F2.8 UMC Fisheye lens can be the next great accessory to the collections of Sony NEX pro compact system camera users.
Though the most compact system camera lovers (and critics of Samyang as well) worldwide are claiming that they would be happier if Samyang had come up with some other trendy lenses than the fisheye one. Many said that a 24mm or 35mm F1.7 pancake or a F1.4 prime lens would have been something to “yey” for instead of this fisheye one. There are a lot of people who may not find a fisheye lens a “Must Have” one to spend some money on!
Whatever they might say, we know it is a great inclusion and will definitely be in the wishlist of the Sony NEX compact system camera lovers. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a quick look on itspecs then:
