  1. I’ve drop here by search engine in looking for fisheye with ideal image circle for my photoproject (max angle of view in 1 dimension x max % of sensor surface used for better de-fishing — all on Sony APS-C e-mount).

    Sample on this page looks close to my ideal (thanks for posting!), but… manufacturer’s pages says there is not such lens! Maybe I’m making any mistake on their pages, but biggest sellers filters say identical: 7.5mm Samyang (Bower, Rokinon, Walimex) is for MFT mount only…

    Does know anybody something about this mystery? Was 7.5 mm for APS-C mounts discontinued product or something different like an adapter?

    Or maybe somebody has data about other fisheyes for e-mount with image circle very close to 23.2 mm or subtly less?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

      1. Many thanks for so quick reply & very accurate link! — even “nuances” like focusing at infinity (possible) problem was mentioned (there is little over 1 mm difference in flange distance between mounts). Immediately things became much more clear…

    1. Hi.

      To fill knowledge: I’ve just found info about commercial kit to transplant ideal image circle (full possible in one dimension) m4/3-mount 7.5mm Samyang (etc…) fisheye on Sony-E body:

      New way to adapt mount (by replacing rear mount) & new way to replace lens hood (just by removing screws. 🙂

      (BTW: APS-C/FF mirrorlesses is so huge market, that it should be done by original manufacturer in normal price…)
