The 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with AE Chip and Removable Hood for Nikon from Samyang gives you a 180° view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with a DX format camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame (FX) 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 f/3.5 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.
The Nikon F mount version of this lens features an electronic circuit which allows for full control of exposure parameters accessible from the Nikon camera, including i-TTL flash communication and EXIF data with all Nikon Digital SLR cameras.
