Meike 8mm f/3.5 fish eye

| 2016 | | |
Lens Mount: | |

the maker claims this lens to have a 200° diagonal coverage on APS-c. (with 160° and 104° on the long and short sides). On full-frame 24×36 mm sensors, it will show a cropped circular image. Even if it’s similar, it’s NOT the same lens as the Samyang 8mm f3.5.

the mirrorless version is simply the same lens, on a longer mount.

The same lens or something very similar is sold also under Opteka’s name, as “Opteka 6.5mm f/3.0 Ultra Wide Angle Manual Focus Aspherical Fisheye” despite the nominal values seeming different, looks and number of lens/groups are exactly the same.
With time other incarnation brands came out. Altura and Lightdow.
