Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens is an excellent addition to any photographer's collection, giving users the ability to expand their creativity and capture incredible scenes from a truly unique perspective.

The Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens is an excellent addition to any photographer's collection, giving users the ability to expand their creativity and capture incredible scenes from a truly unique perspective.This manual focus lens, when used with cameras with an APS-C image sensor, creates images with an expanded perspective, including images with a creatively deformed outlook and a sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame. By offering a 180-degree angle of view, this fisheye lens can be used to create amazing image expressions that cannot be seen by the human eye, such as exaggerated perspective and distortion. The minimum shooting distance (just 12 inches) and large depth of field also provide amazing close-up shots.In addition, this lens incorporates the latest optical multi-coating techniques. The process of multi-coating assures virtually flare-free photographs even under adverse lighting conditions, resulting in crisp, high-contrast pictures.

Technical Specs:

  • Mounts directly to your Nikon DSLR camera - no additional adaptors required!
  • Conforms to APS-C (1:1.5x) size digital imaging format
  • Actualizes 8mm focal length and a diagonal angle of view of 180 degrees for APS-C size
  • Corrects aberrations using a complex aspherical lens. When fully opened, it produces both a high resolution and high contrast view at the center of the lens, as well as around the periphery of the lens.
  • Petal type hood and multi-coating help control flaring and ghosting
  • Offers robust durability by incorporating a rigid aluminum base frame
  • Compact and lightweight
  • F=8mm, F3.5 Fisheye Lens
  • Aperture Range: F3.5 - 22
  • Optical Construction: 10 elements in 7 groups
  • Angle of View: 180 degrees
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 1ft
  • Length: 74.8mm or 2.95 inches
  • Maximum Diameter: 75mm
  • Type: Manual
  • Includes a lens pouch, built-in hood, and 1 year Rokinon warranty

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: For a straight up manual lens it was surprisingly easy to get some great shots. Even my son who isn't a photographer took some really nice pictures. For the price I don't believe there is an equal.

Pros: Professional Quality
Cons: Limited Compatibility
Other Comments: This lens is a fantastic lens for its price! The lack of AF is not a factor because it is such a short lens everything is basically in focus. A great buy

5 out of 5 stars   It's really that good.
By Mist3rB33 (Atlanta, GA) July 16, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use, Professional Quality, Highly Compatible
Cons:
Other Comments: I expected it to be good after reading many reviews, and watching several videos made with it. I was surprised, though, at how sharp it is at the edges and corners at f/5.6 (1.6 crop 7D camera). I tested it indoors on tripod with shutter release and mirror lock-up, and images required no sharpening at all.

5 out of 5 stars   Great value!
By SC98 (Bellaire, TX) April 08, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use, Compact Design, Lightweight, Highly Compatible
Cons:
Other Comments: The fisheye perspective produces really neat photos and build quality and image quality are really nice. Easy to use even though it is manual. Can still use it on my Canon with aperture priority mode, metering still works. Only downside is there is not a good area to grab on the lens when unmounting from the camera so you end up spinning the aperture ring.

By Bill (Frankenmuth, MI) April 06, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Versitable, Fun to use, Compact Design, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: Items that are 10 to 12 inches from the camera are in sharp focus as well as items across the street, all in one picture. Great for signs describing things in the background. Wide angle gets everything in one shot.

5 out of 5 stars   If you're thinking about it, just buy it
By Kevin (San Diego) April 05, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon FE8M-S 8mm F3.5 Fisheye Lens for Sony Alpha (Black) (ROFE8MS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Ease of Use, Sharp, Color rendition, Easy to use
Cons: Lens cap, Lack Of Filters, Lens Cap Quality
Other Comments: Just set the aperture at 5.6 or higher, and the focus at 1m/3ft, and shoot away. A manual focus lens not shy away from, especially with the affordable price for a fisheye.

3 out of 5 stars   Good quality, sharp fisheye.
By trinkus (Portland, OR) April 05, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MN)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact Design
Cons: F-stop Registers Wrong
Other Comments: I've only had the chance to use the lens for a few days. The image quality is quite good. Focus can be tricky since it's fully manual and you have to rely on your focus indicator which isn't always 100% accurate. I noticed that the F-stop doesn't register correctly in my Nikon D7000. I should be an f/3.5 lens but in camera it shows down to 2.8 and the f-stop is always off by about 1/2 a stop throughout the range.

Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lightweight, Highly Compatible, Compact Design, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: Love this lens and you can't beat the price. The images are great and it works great on my Canon 7D. I marked a con that it is manual, which could be an issue for some people. It is quite easy to use, if you know how to use your camera in manual mode. If you don't this is a good time to practice.

5 out of 5 stars   Great Value to Fun/Performance Ratio
By budrowilson (Cookeville, TN) March 06, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact Design, Professional Quality
Cons: Fully Manual
Other Comments: The Rokinon 8mm Fish-eye lens is an absolute joy to photograph with and surprisingly sharp. For someone with a bag full of lenses, this lens brings a fresh perspective to photography. It's fun to use - plain and simple - and the results are very good (even better than the price would indicate). It's a fully manual lens, but it's not difficult to become proficient with it. For the price, it's a steal.

4 out of 5 stars   Here fishy, fishy
By meyel (KS) February 17, 2013
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MC)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: ou can't beat the price. It's a great deal. I do not own another fisheye, but for the money I could't pass it up. To show the middle of a say 5 ft object it's fine To get the whole object in it distorts but thats what its supposed to do. For closeups I'd use a 10-70 or something like that. But the fish eye is great fun.

By Live2Shoot (Atlanta, GA) June 06, 2011
Review submitted for Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras (ROFE8MN)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Reliable, Lightweight, Quality, Value
Cons:
Other Comments: I had a destination wedding last month and thought this lens would be a great addition for some cool, interesting and wild shots. Well, I was right! I pretty much kept it on my back-up camera and found myself constantly picking it up! I was very impressed with the quality of this lens. You just can not beat a true fisheye for the price! Hands down, if you are on the fence... get off! Give it a try. I truly believe you will be satisfied
