M.Zuiko ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye Lens

180° of Creative Shooting

Explore exciting creative possibilities the new M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 fisheye PRO. The super-fast lens lets you apply interesting fisheye effects in low-light conditions, yet it delivers the same amazing edge-to-edge sharpness as other Olympus PRO series lenses.

This ultra portable fisheye lens makes this a perfect companion for creative shooting in any environment, especially urban street shooting, landscapes, underwater and  hand-held night shots.

The M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye, with a full 180° of creative shooting. It’s lightweight and portable enough to throw in your camera bag without a second thought.

Unparalleled Optical Performance

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.

Sealed For Perfection

The M.Zuiko PRO 8mm fisheye is surprisingly rugged. There’s a weather-sealing in five separate locations and it’s freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C).

The PPO-EP02 Dome Port available For The M.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Pro Lens. The Dome Port is compact and designed to maximize the lens performance whether you’re shooting over/unders, macros or around the reef or wreck.

PPO-EP02 is compatible with the E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II Underwater housings. The PT-EP13 Underwater Housing for E-M5 Mark II requires a port exchange service.  Users are required to send their housing into the service dept at which time they will install the PPO-EP02 (item only available through service) for use in that housing.
