Saturday saw the arrival of a Royal Mail Special Delivery package containing a new lens. In this instance a Samyang 8mm full frame fish eye - obviously not for everyday use but more of a creative tool. Why did I decide on this lens, well there are loads of positive reviews n the net speaking highly of both it's build & optical quality. Now the big downside with this lens according to many will be that in these 'auto-everything' days why buy a manual only lense? Yes, you have to focus it yourself & you have to manually select the aperture but this isn't really a problem at all - this isn't going to be a fast action lens! Anyway, had a quick play today, but the weather was awful so just took it to the beach to run off a few snaps - but expect to see a few pictures added to the Galleries in due course.
