8mm F1.8 Pro Fisheye Olympus Explore exciting creative possibilities and create never-before-seen images with the new M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 fisheye PRO – the world’s first fisheye with an extremely bright f1.8 maximum aperture. The super-fast shutter speeds this lens supports let you apply interesting fisheye effects in low-light conditions (underwater, nighttime), yet it delivers the same amazing edge-to-edge sharpness as other Olympus PRO series lenses.
180° OF CREATIVE SHOOTING Stand still and look straight ahead. Now look to your left and right – and imagine being able to capture a photograph that presents this panoramic perspective. The M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye, with a full 180° view, allows you to do just that. And it’s lightweight and portable enough to throw in your camera bag without a second thought.
UNPARALLELED OPTICAL PERFORMANCE The sophisticated, performance-proven design of the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye’s lens architecture (17 elements in 15 groups) dramatically reduces, chromatic and comatic aberration. Its proprietary ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating virtually eliminates ghosts and flares from backlit scenes. And its precision optics maintains pin-point sharp resolution right up to the edges of the frame – even at a wide-open f1.8 aperture.
SEALED FOR PERFECTION For such a sophisticated piece of photographic equipment, the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye is surprisingly rugged. There’s no need to baby it – with weather-sealing in five separate locations, you’re the only one who has to worry about rain, wind and dirt…and it’s even freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C). Imagine your best nature shots from a striking fisheye perspective!
SHOOT WITH THE FISHES Where else would be more appropriate to take a fisheye lens but...underwater! The PPO-EP02 dome port available for the M.Zuiko 8mm f1.8 PRO lens lets you go eye-to-eye with the denizens o the deep and bring back cool shots to prove it. The dome port is compact and designed to maximize the lens performance whether you're shooting over/unders, macros or just hanging around the reef.
*PPO-EP02 is compatible with the E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II Underwater housings.
