FEATURES

 

Opens up a new world

  • Separately available underwater lens port is required for underwater photography.

The arrival of the world’s first f/1.8 fisheye lens opens up a new world in underwater, macro, and starscape photography, as well as in everyday snapshots.

 

Fascinating super close-up macro photography with beautiful background defocusing

This lens lets you get up to 2.5 cm* away from subjects and shoot with the exaggerated perspective and extreme distortion effects only possible with a fisheye lens. With an aperture of f/1.8, it also provides beautiful background defocusing for a truly unique macro image.

  • Distance from the end of the lens

 

Taking starscapes to another level

Even at the maximum aperture value of f/1.8, images are sharp right up to the edges for beautiful starscape photography.

 

Exciting nightscapes

With a brightness of f/1.8 and a fisheye perspective, nightscapes come to life in a way they never have before.

 

Take a fresh approach to portraits

The fisheye lens is not traditionally associated with portraits, which is why it can capture eye-catching portraits that have never been seen before.

 

Amazing optical performance

As an addition to the M.Zuiko PRO series, highly acclaimed by professional photographers, the M.Zuiko ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO boasts outstanding optical performance.

 

Optical performance levels never achieved before in starscape photography

Only the optical performance of the M.Zuiko ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO can realize breathtaking starscapes such as the one you see below.

 

Stars appear as they should, as points of light, even in the periphery of the image

Hand-held fisheye nightscapes

Having a brightness of f/1.8 is excellent for nightscape shooting. Using this lens with a 5-axis-image-stablisation-equipped OM-D E-M1 or E-M5 Mark II, you can shoot unique nightscapes handheld.

 

Optical performance that provides excellent depictive power

  1. HR (High Refractive Index) lens
  2. Super HR lens
  3. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens
  4. Super ED lens
  5. Aspherical lens

Even with maximum aperture of f/1.8, the outstanding optical performance of the lens maintains high resolution even at the edges of the image.

 

ZERO Coating thoroughly eliminates ghosts and flares

ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating is applied to the lens surface to thoroughly eliminate ghosts and flares, which are known to be difficult to reduce because of their high transparency. ZERO Coating boasts clear image quality even under challenging conditions such as backlit situations.

 

Dustproof, splashproof, freezeproof

With hermetic sealing in 6 locations, this lens is dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof, allowing photography even in severe environments where professional photographers often venture out to for their work.

Depth of field

When focusing on a subject, there is an area behind and in front of the focused point that is also in focus. This area is called depth of field. The amount of area behind a focused point will always be greater than the area in front of the focused point regardless of aperture. Depth of field becomes deeper when the focal length is short (wide-angle lens), the focusing distance is long, and aperture is small.
