Lensbaby announced a new 5.8mm Circular Fisheye lens. The manual focus lens is priced $299,95 and can be pre-order at B&H Photo or Adorama.
The 5.8mm f/3.5 Circular Fisheye Lens for Canon EF from Lensbaby is a manual focus lens with a wide 5.8mm focal length that provides a fully circular image optimized for APS-C-format cameras. It is compatible with full frame image sensors by producing a smaller image within the frame. The lens has an aperture range of f/3.5 to f/22 and captures a 185˚ angle of view. It features a close focusing range starting at 0.25″ and going to infinity, all while providing expansive depth of field and image sharpness. This Lensbaby lens doesn’t bend, so the fisheye image is always perfectly centered in the frame.
