  • Can NN3 support pentax k-3 with Samyang 8mm f3.5 fisheye

    I consider to upgrade my pentax k20d to k-3. Can NN3 support pentax k-3 with Samyang 8mm f3.5 fisheye? If it does, any suggested setting information?

    Thanks a lot!

    If you have the lens and camera, please measure the length from tripod socket to the NPP. Here is the setting on the lens

    Use 45 deg setting for 4 shots around.
    length should be smaller than 10.6cm.
    finding NPP is easy.

        Yes:
        If you don't have the same extra parts as I do (nadir adapter, quick release and Manfrotto plate) my settings probably won't help. If you have settings for K-20D, try starting from 8mm smaller lower rail and 3mm larger upper rail settings.

          Many thanks for your great help!!! Now I can plan to upgrade to K-3 !

          BTW, in your experience, what is the sharpest focus setting for Samyang 8mm? I set the focus to 0.7m with K20D.

          Thanks again!
