(From Samsung lens literature) Photography enthusiasts and advanced hobbyists can now shoot wider than ever before with the launch of the new Samsung 10mm F3.5 Fisheye Lens. The smallest AF fisheye lens on the market, this super wide angle lens is half the size and weight of its competitors, offering passionate photographers a convenient way to expand their creative horizons without carrying weighty accessories.

The new lens represents Samsung’s innovation in 180-degree lens technology, and is compatible with the award winning NX system, including the new NX300. Its expanded field of view makes the new 10mm fisheye lens the perfect companion for landscape photographers – allowing users to compose stunning images of sprawling cities, picturesque scenery and beautiful skies that stretch further than the eye can see. The lens’ ultra-wide fisheye perspective also lets users create unique portrait images, producing interesting effects and striking portraiture, allowing shooters to have more fun with their photography.

At just 2.5 ounces, this compact lens comes in stylish white or black to complement Samsung’s NX series of cameras, and easily fits into a camera bag or purse for lightweight travel and outdoor shooting. Image quality is paramount to Samsung’s lens design, and this silent AF ultra-wide angle lens delivers high quality photographs in virtually any situation.

For the ultimate photographic experience, the lens comes with a number of iScene options, including Beauty Shot, Portrait, Night, Backlight, Children and Sports, making it adaptable for the needs of every photographer. The 10mm F3.5 Fisheye is also fitted with a Circular Aperture Diaphragm to bring the subject of your images front and center.

    the smallest fisheye available for APS-C by a margin. Optically very good.
    none

    The size of the lens is simply amazing. This fisheye weighs 71 grams! There is no APS-C fish that gets even close to that and I don't think there's as small fisheye lens even for Micro43. The Samsung 10mm/3.5 is so small (short), you have to be careful not to get your own fingers into the frame. I just love this lens. I compared it to the excellent Sigma 10/2.8 HSM and optically they were pretty alike. The Samsungs AF was more accurate than the Sigma on a 7D with phase detection AF (and of course due to the 1.5 crop factor, the Samsung is wider). The f/3.5 aperture is more thab acceptable considering the size.
