Fast service with a fine product. This lens should please anyone who wants a 360 degree view at a reasonable cost. It is sharp where it should be and it displays fine bokeh.
This thing is just stellar for distortion, less than most fisheyes and basically gives me 180 degree view on DX nikon format. It's cheap, manual focus (dont need focus too much cuz there's so much depth of field), but minus one star cuz it doesnt meter on anything below a d200. Well i knew this when buying, but having metering would help so much more. overall an excellent product to play around with fisheye
I use this with my Nikon D7000. Matrix Metering and Aparture Priority are available. The best *** toy a photographer can have! Rokinon 8mm f/3.5. Manual focus is not a problem---just set it to 1.5 feet at f/8 or f/11 and let the DOF do the focusing for you. This is a great lens, I am very happy with it!
Works great with my D40.. manual focus (set and forget), manual aperture (twist the ring), manual exposure (use the histogram). Mine came free with finger smudges on the front element, but they came off with careful cleaning. Low distortion even in the corners. Overall an excellent piece of glass. Body mount fits a little tight, and the focus scale is off. But neither is a big deal. The odd thing part about using this lens in portrait orientation is how easy it is to get your feet and the ceiling in your photo at the same time.
