The Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye MFT lens looks like a winner.

    This lens is cheap, compact and relatively fast for a fisheye. I love the amount of curvature in the square format 180 degree fisheye - it is much better than some Sigma fisheyes I tried on my Nikon D90 recently and this lens will be a lot cheaper. The only downside that I see is the lack of electrical contacts with the camera body means no lens EXIF data.

    Hmm, I think a fisheye will be in the shopping basked for my Olympus E-P3.

    I have the 4/3 version and the new model seems about half the size. Certainly interesting and good to see micro 4/3 designs - wonder if they'll do their 85mm f/1.4?
