Samyang Announces Prototype 7mm Fish Eye for Micro Four Thirds

According to DPReview, Samyang has unveiled a prototype 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens designed specifically for Micro Four Thirds. A native design has the advantage of smaller lenses, as shown above. Having said that... Why another fish-eye? There's the Panasonic already! First manufacturer to get a good 8/9/10mm f/2.8 out gets my money.

Canon Announces a Slew of Lenses

"MISSISSAUGA, ON., August 26, 2010 – Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging, rounds out its Summer product introductions with four new L-series lenses and two new accessory extenders for professionals and advanced amateurs. Leading the introductions, the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens* is the world’s widest fisheye zoom lens, providing professional photographers and cinematographers with a unique optical tool for capturing 180º angle-of-view shots on all EOS Digital SLR cameras. Photographers looking for a broad focal length range with excellent image quality will enjoy the Company’s first L-series 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens, the new EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens*, delivering outstanding sharpness, contrast and colour fidelity in a compact, lightweight form factor."

The most interesting lenses among the lot of the new Canon lenses, are the 8-15/4L and the 70-300/4.5-5.6L. Fisheye lovers, rejoice! An 8 to 15mm zoom fisheye is here, so you can pick all the different ways you can distort the world in your photos.. Also some nice news for Canon users, is a 70-300/4-5.6L zoom lens. The 70-300s have usually been cheap telephoto consumer zoom lenses, but they have been used by pros for their light weight and compact size. Now that there's an L version of the lens, quality should step up, while mostly retaining the size and the weight. What is lost is the cheap price: US$1,500 is almost as much a 70-200/2.8 L USM lens. The other announcements include an update to the f/2.8 superteles; the 300/2.8 and 400/2.8, as well as the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. Press release and images of the other lenses after the break.
