    Anyone tried this yet? Not many pictures on Flickr to check out. Might pick it up this weekend and give it a go.

    It's about 370 US here with today's exchange rate. Think I will give it a try.

    I really like the Samyang FEs. I've owned with Nikon DX, m43, and now Xmount.
    Optical performance is very good imo.

    I know the 4/3 version very well. How does the Fuji version compare? If it's the same I'm ordering one.

    I used both when I was transitioning from mu43 to fuji and definitely feel they are pretty much the same optically.
    The Fuji one opens to 2.8 tho if I'm not mistaken (vs 3.5 for the mu43?)

    Same here, used to have this one for m4/3. When i was switching to fuji I bought it quite quickly. In my opinion it's exactly same quality.
    You do not use fisheye so often by for the price and quality and fun :) I think it's very worth to have.

    Thanks both of you. Really helpful. Painful to the wallet but I do love a good fisheye.

    Having used this lens before and knowing how close you have to get to get shots like that, I have to applaud you Gary!
    Once again you impress! :)
