Introducing the world’s first1 f/1.8 fisheye lens. With the superb optical performance throughout the entire image and the dustproof/splashproof construction of the PRO series, you can enjoy never-before-seen, emotionally moving imagery with this lens. The separately available waterproof lens port makes it possible to use this lens for ultra wide-angle shooting even underwater.
Opens up a new world
The arrival of the world’s first f/1.8 fisheye lens opens up a new world in underwater, macro, and starscape photography, as well as in everyday snapshots.
Fascinating super close-up macro photography with beautiful background defocusing
This lens lets you get up to 2.5 cm* away from subjects and shoot with the exaggerated perspective and extreme distortion effects only possible with a fisheye lens. With an aperture of f/1.8, it also provides beautiful background defocusing for a truly unique macro image.
Taking starscapes to another level
Even at the maximum aperture value of f/1.8, images are sharp right up to the edges for beautiful starscape photography.
With a brightness of f/1.8 and a fisheye perspective, nightscapes come to life in a way they never have before.

When focusing on a subject, there is an area behind and in front of the focused point that is also in focus. This area is called depth of field. The amount of area behind a focused point will always be greater than the area in front of the focused point regardless of aperture. Depth of field becomes deeper when the focal length is short (wide-angle lens), the focusing distance is long, and aperture is small.
