WOOT!

I also have the older Rokinon version that doesn't have the removable hood and like it, it's a fun lens. I just set the focus a bit short of infinity and that usually works fine.

I read people have cut the hood off the old ones and used them on full frame cameras, I wonder if that's why they make the newer version like that.

I am sorry for being naive :)

I never understood when review everywhere says that it is full frame, I have Rokinon HD8M-C 8mm with removable hood. When I place that on a full frame (it fits no question) and no hood on, I still see a big black ORA in the photograph. How come it is called a full frame lens?

The only problem I've run into with the lens hood is that, while not removable, it does have some play in it, and can move a bit. If It's not screwed on tight, I get black edges on my photos. Otherwise, for the $180 my wife spent on it for me, it's a great bargain for all the fun I've had with it.

Any 8mm fisheye on FF will do this. The circular image is as-intended, and is designed to be just about 24mm , so you get a circular image that fully fits into the height of the sensor.

On a full frame camera, it will be a circular fisheye. On a crop camera, it will fill more than a circle, but less than the whole frame. The sides of the image will be black.

Does this mean that use fisheye on full frame and than crop? but when you crop it won't be really full frame shot but of behaves like crop, right? trying to understand the technical difference between the two body when using fisheye!

I can't paste links into DPC without my browser crashing...but if you use Google Image search for 'circular fisheye', you'll see good examples of what an 8mm fisheye does on a FF camera. Basically, the image circle of the lens is entirely within the frame. Then you crop as necessary. On an APS-C camera, you'll get black corners, but most of the frame will be filled.

This is a rectilinear fisheye instead of a circular fisheye. On a crop body the image will cover the entire frame. I'm pretty sure it was meant for crop bodies but people have used them on FF cameras as a cheap circular fisheye. If you look at the reviews of the lens, you'll see one of the reviewers posted pictures of what it looks like on his 5Dm2.

Yep, my Opteka 6.5mm fills the frame on my 60D.

If anyone has been thinking about getting Canon's 100mm 2.8L Macro lens, it's available in Canon's refurbished section. I've waiting awhile for one of these refurbs to become available.

It's $719.

Not sure how many would be interested but get a free license for Photo Director 5. It is windows only!

Minor terminology correction... "rectilinear" would be a standard lens, not a fisheye. Fisheyes are usually equiangular projection (though other fisheye projections are possible). The easy way to tell the difference from images is:
- With rectilinear projection, straight lines are always straight, no matter where they are in the frame (ignoring distortion). Circles will appear to be elongated as the approach the edge of the frame (this is why people at the edges of a WA shot are unflattteringly distorted!).

- With equiangular projection, straight lines are curved, unless they pass exactly through the center of the frame. Circles are always circles, no matter where they appear in the frame.

Edit for typo

Thanks for the correction Fritz. It's always good to know the correct terminology.

Woot Deal 24-105mm Canon: they're selling them brand new for $799, 200 bucks less than B&H...
08/17/2015 10:21:22 AM · #193
Meh.com (sells one item for only one day, each day)

Has this today only:

$294.00 USD

Nikon D3200 DSLR with 18-55mm Lens

($530 LIST, $447 AT AMAZON)

24MP CMOS DX-format sensor, which is every bit as impressive and camera-y as it sounds
Includes 18-55mm zoom lens, because cropping a digital photo and then making it bigger is not actual zoom
Records full HD 1080p video that also looks way better than your phone
Model: D3200

P.S. Sometimes they sell out... when they're gone, they're gone.

That looks like GREAT FUN, Gen! I wish I had a spare $1000... *heavy sigh*

Not sure if any one looking for this!

Rokinon FE8M-C 8mm for $179 which is about $60 less then Amazon and have some good reviews.

The deal is for Canon,Nikon,Sony Alpha,Pentax K.

This is a good lens for crop factor body and in full frame you will get a circular image.

Thanks for that, Neil. I was needing a light-weight tripod and snapped up this nice unadvertised bargain.
