(5 customer reviews)

Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fish-Eye CS is a camera glass that captures a wide 180-degree angle of view, producing a circular image. It is a manual focus photographic lens that has 10 lens elements in 7 groups to provide sharp and clear images. The lens coating helps to reduce flare and ghosting, resulting in better contrast and color accuracy. The build quality is good, and it is durable and reliable. The maximum aperture of f/3.5 allows for good low-light performance, but it may not be as bright as some alternatives. The resolution is high, producing detailed images. If you are looking for a fisheye lens, this lens is a good option to consider.


  • As a vintage lens enthusiast, I was pleasantly surprised by the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fish-Eye CS camera lens. The build quality of this lens is excellent, and it gives a distinctive fish-eye effect that is perfect for creative photography. The lens is also relatively lightweight, making it easy to take on-the-go. Additionally, the lens focuses quickly, and the manual focus ring is smooth and easy to use.


  • One drawback of this lens is that it’s only compatible with crop sensor cameras, which limits its usefulness for those who shoot with full-frame cameras. Another potential issue is that the lens is entirely manual, which could be a challenge for beginners or those who are used to shooting with automatic lenses.


  • Overall, I believe that the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fish-Eye CS camera lens is an excellent product for those who are looking for a high-quality fish-eye lens. While there are some potential downsides to consider, the unique and creative effects that this lens enables more than make up for any limitations. Overall, I highly recommend this lens for anyone looking to add some variety to their photography toolkit.
