With Canon 60D I’ve used Samyang 8 mm as my fisheye lens. Obviously, I needed a fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2, and I had three options: Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5, Panasonic 8 mm 3.5 and Olympus 8 mm 1.8. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I ended up choosing Samyang 7.5 fisheye.
Olympus 8 mm 1.8 is definitely the best of these three, but it also costs the most. For the price of one Olympus one could buy 4 Samyangs, so I just couldn’t afford it right. […] Read more!

I just bought the combo pack made by Black Eye. It includes a fisheye lens and a macro/wide-angle lens made for mobile phone cameras.

I believe these same lenses are sold under different brands, and Tom and Jesse have already bought their own.
The fisheye lens is the main reason I bought this set. […] Read more!
Out of all camera gear, fisheye is definitely what defines our band. Right from the beginning we were looking for a camera with a fisheye, since all of our idols are using it. For example every great skate movie is shot with a fisheye and Travis Barker uses it a lot on his Instagram photos. Greatest examples are the ones he takes of his car’s front grill.
Fisheye makes any situation look cooler, and it’s best when shot from a low angle and close to the target. […] Read more!
