Fisheye lens reviews (WYSIWYG)

Fisheye lenses have a very short focal length. Fisheye lens on a camera gives an extreme wide angle and a typical barrel distortion. The performance of the lenses in this table are based on " What you see is what you get (WYSIWYG )", as you save images in the camera as a jpg file, with all the in- camera lens corrections applied ("What you see is what you get ": WYSIWYG").

There is another, "Pure and RAW" table with test results based on unsharpened raw files, where no corrections for chromatic aberration, distortion or vignettinge have been applied. These scores approach the intrinsic quality of the combination of lens and test camera.

If a lens is tested on a camera with an APS-C or micro-43 sensor, then the focal lengths have been converted to the equivalent field of view for a camera with a full frame sensor ( mm @ ff ). Because of this conversion, you can compare lenses on cameras with different sensor types. Note thet lens scores are determined by the test camera being used (megapixels , sensor size, jpg conversion).

For a further selection, select at least: lenstype = fisheye

With Camera Review Stuff I hope to make a modest contribution to the pleasure that you get from photography. By testing cameras and lenses in the same way, evluating the results and weighing up the pros and cons, I hope to help you find the right camera or lens.
