Ultra Wide-Angle Fisheye Lens
The drama of an ultra-wide view creates a unique perspective of any subject. The 8mm Zuiko Digital Fisheye lens delivers on the promise of bringing digital excellence to photographic creativity. A must for fans of wide-angle photography, this ED Glass 8mm fisheye is ideal for 8mm f3.5 Zuiko Digital Fisheye viewing and composing dramatic ultra-wide "fisheye" images. Captures vivid detail with a 180 degree angle of view (diagonally) from as close as 5.3 inches to as far as infinity. Dust- and splash-resistant design lets you shoot in any weather.
f3.5 Brightness
The Zuiko 8mm employs a f3.5 brightness that allows you to achieve superb photos even in poor lighting conditions.
Multi-Coated Lens With ED Glass Element
This pristine glass lens delivers light directly to each of the imager's pixels. From center to edge, each image is filled with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital Lenses provide a level of precision that's unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens.
Digital Specific Lens™
Zuiko Digital lenses are designed to focus light straight into an imager's pixel wells, to fill every pixel consistently. It's optical technology that delivers an image filled from center to edge with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital lenses provide a level of precision that's simply unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens.

The Olympus FourThirds Standard uses lenses which are just as powerful as the lenses previously developed for 35mm film camera systems despite being about half the size. Thus the focal length of the 8mm in the FourThirds Standard gives the same angle of view as an 22-44mm lens for a 35mm film camera. It is important to know that this is not a 2x "crop factor" -- Olympus E-System lenses are designed for this size format and have a much higher resolution than lenses designed generally for 35mm film cameras. The benefit: superb image quality but less weight to carry.

Zuiko lenses feature a near telecentric design that ensures that the light hits the photodiodes at right angles, thus avoiding the problem of blurring at the edges of the image, or corner shading, which often occurs when using lenses originally designed for 35mm film cameras. Combined with the high resolution of Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses, this lens design exploits the full potential of the digital camera image sensors. The result is clear photos with strong colors and sharp contrasts right to the edges of the image.

Smart System
Zuiko Digital lenses communicate image information directly to the Olympus E-System Digital SLR for a level of exposure accuracy that's beyond the capabilities of a passive lens.
