Opens up a new world

The arrival of the world’s first f/1.8 fisheye lens opens up a new world in underwater, macro, and starscape photography, as well as in everyday snapshots.

  • Separately available underwater lens port is required for underwater photography.

Fascinating super close-up macro photography with beautiful background defocusing

This lens lets you get up to 2.5 cm* away from subjects and shoot with the exaggerated perspective and extreme distortion effects only possible with a fisheye lens. With an aperture of f/1.8, it also provides beautiful background defocusing for a truly unique macro image.

Taking starscapes to another level

Even at the maximum aperture value of f/1.8, images are sharp right up to the edges for beautiful starscape photography.

Exciting nightscapes

With a brightness of f/1.8 and a fisheye perspective, nightscapes come to life in a way they never have before.

Take a fresh approach to portraits

The fisheye lens is not traditionally associated with portraits, which is why it can capture eye-catching portraits that have never been seen before.


Amazing optical performance

As an addition to the M.Zuiko PRO series, highly acclaimed by professional photographers, the M.Zuiko ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO boasts outstanding optical performance.
