Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 Fisheye PRO

Olympus SKU: V312030BU000 | Helix SKU: OYV312030BU000

Explore exciting creative possibilities and create never-before-seen images with the new M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 fisheye PRO (16mm 35mm equivalent) – the world’s first fisheye with an extremely bright f1.8 maximum aperture. The super-fast shutter speeds this lens supports let you apply interesting fisheye effects in low-light conditions (underwater, nighttime), yet it delivers the same amazing edge-to-edge sharpness as other Olympus PRO series lenses.


Stand still and look straight ahead. Now look to your left and right – and imagine being able to capture a photograph that presents this panoramic perspective. The M.Zuiko PRO 8mm Fisheye, with a full 180° view, allows you to do just that. And it’s lightweight and portable enough to throw in your camera bag without a second thought.


The sophisticated, performance-proven design of the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm Fisheye’s lens architecture (17 elements in 15 groups) dramatically reduces, chromatic and comatic aberration. Its proprietary ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating virtually eliminates ghosts and flares from backlit scenes. And its precision optics maintains pin-point sharp resolution right up to the edges of the frame – even at a wide-open f1.8 aperture.


For such a sophisticated piece of photographic equipment, the M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye is surprisingly rugged. There’s no need to baby it – with weather-sealing in five separate locations, you’re the only one who has to worry about rain, wind and dirt…and it’s even freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C). Imagine your best nature shots from a striking fisheye perspective!


Where else would be more appropriate to take a fisheye lens but...underwater! The PPO-EP02 dome port available for the M.Zuiko 8mm f1.8 PRO lens lets you go eye-to-eye with the denizens of the deep and bring back cool shots to prove it. The dome port is compact and designed to maximize the lens performance whether you're shooting over/unders, macros or just hanging around the reef.


Using the “Fisheye Correction” function in Olympus Viewer 3 v1.5, users can correct the distortion created by the fisheye lens to get an ultra-wide angle photo with an approximate view-angle of 9mm (35mm equivalent). The superior optical design of the 8mm fisheye lens offers minimal deterioration of image quality in the corners of the image. The fisheye Correction feature of  Olympus Viewer 3 is also compatible with 40MP High Resolution Shot images.
