Difference between Samyang 7.5mm, Samyang 8mm and Minolta 16mm on a full frame sensor camera

The following three images illustrate the three fish eye lenses on Sony cameras with a full frame size sensor (for example the Sony ILCE-7). To get these kind of images on a full frame sized sensor you have to shave the lenshood of the Samyang lenses.

  1. Markus. Can we use Auto Bracketing settings with the A7 and the Samyang 7.5mm fish eye lens

  2. Hi! What kind of adapter are you using? I know about the Fotodiox, which has really bad ratings… is there a better one?

    1. Hi Sebastian,

      we are using different ones. But also the Fotodiox one. The first one was one I bought some years ago at Photokina. My osecond one is from Fotodiox. PanoTwin Jürgen also bought a Fotodiox.

      The general problem with all of them is, that the ones we got are all not very precise. However we managed to fix these problems but not for all the camera bodies involved 🙁

      See also this article:

      One of the problems is e.g. that the E-Mount of PanoTwin Jürgen’s a6300 does not work with any of our total of four different adapter rings we have…

      Hope this helps,
      PanoTwin Markus
