The Olympus 8mm f/1.8 ED PRO Fisheye is a high quality, fast maximum aperture fisheye lens designed for the Micro 4/3 system.

This professional-grade rectilinear fisheye lens gives users a 16mm-equivalent post sensor-crop factor focal length. Fisheye design renders a 180° angle of view to produce a distinct visual appeal characterized by dramatic distortion and a creative depiction of space. Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult and low-light conditions.

The Olympus 8mm f/1.8 ED PRO Fisheye uses a high-speed imager autofocus system with fast, nearly silent performance. It falls within the Movie & Still Image Compatible (MSC) designation, meaning that it also excels in video applications. Minimum focusing distance of 4.7" pairs with a 0.4x equivalent maximum magnification for photographing close-up subjects with an exaggerated perspective.

Build and Optics
The lens construction integrates one aspherical element, three Super ED (extra-low dispersion) elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, one Super HR (high refractive index) element, and two HR elements to minimize aberrations, distortion, and color fringing while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Dust, splash, and freeze proof construction ensures this lens' performance in inclement conditions and harsh environments.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
