Olympus Digital SLR Lenses
« on: 09:10:24, 11/10/08 »
Not really a question about walking equipment, more about photographic equipment.

I have an Olympus E500 Digital SLR camera and am after a wide-angle lens.

I am only interested in genuine Olympus ZUIKO lenses, which probably narrows my choice significantly, but these are the ones that I am used to using with this, and my previous, camera.

I have been looking on the internet at the 8mm Fisheye lens (http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/dslr_ZUIKO_DIGITAL_ED_8mm_1_3_5_Fisheye.htm), but apart from shops writing reviews trying to sell them, I was unable to find any reviews from people who have used one. I am reluctant to spend 400 on a lens without knowing what peoples experience of them is.

Has anyone got any knowledge of this lens, and is it really 180 angle in practice?
