8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye

Large aperture F3.5 circular fisheye lens with close up capability, optimized for use with digital SLR cameras.
This circular fisheye lens produces circular images with an angle of view of 180° when attached to a full-frame digital SLR or 35mm film SLR camera. It has a fast maximum aperture of F3.5 and a minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm (5.3"). Sigma’s super multi-layer coating and Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass provide excellent image quality for digital and film SLR cameras. The special fisheye design allows maximum creative expression.
*Full circle can only be captured with full frame 35mm format digital SLR and film SLR cameras.
Auto-focus system
This circular fisheye lens produces circular images with an angle of view of 180°and also incorporates an auto focus system to achieve accurate focusing that might be difficult through the camera`s viewfinder due to the extremely large depth of field.
F3.5 maximum aperture
This lens is perfectly suited for low light conditions indoors or at dusk.
Close-up Photography
This circular fisheye lens has a minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm (5.3") and a maximum magnification of 1:4.6 making it particularly useful for close-up photography.
Excellent optical performance
Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass offer effective compensation of color aberration.
Reduction of flare and ghosting
Sigma’s super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.
An ideal lens for scientific applications 
Due to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces, this lens can be used for scientific applications such as solid angle measurements of cloud distribution over the sky, or vegetation distribution of the rain forest canopy.
Gelatin Filter Holder 
A holder at the rear of the lens accepts gelatin filters.

Manfrotto tripods



The handle-driven gear and tooth mechanism and the secure anti-rollback system on the centre column of these tripods makes them more suitable for heavier camera equipment. At the same time, they are more precise in height adjustments, so are good for still life and studio work, or even (if you have good strong arms) outdoor macro photography where framing fine-tuning is critical.



With a simple lock/unlock mechanism on the centre column, rapid column tripods are faster and easier to adjust in height than their counterparts. The column can also often be inverted for ground-level macros or even set horizontally to get the camera out from above the tripod legs.



What better exemplifies a truly "special photo tripod" than the 458B NEOTEC - the first professional tripod that opens, repositions and closes in under 5 seconds, without levers or screws? Here you'll also find the tiny, pocket-sized table top tripods that make sure you're never stuck without a solid support for your camera.
