  • New version Rokinon HD8M-N 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye

    I just picked up one of these on Amazon during a lightning deal sale and am looking forward to testing it.

    This is the newest version with removable lens hood and I have no idea if the shape of the lens has changed.

    Will the current F6210 lens ring/insert fit?

    Hi Mosleyh,

    As Rokinon, Bowers etc are different names/branches for Samyang lenses. So I dare to say the lens ring will fit in case you use a pentax or nikon body.
    Set the focus to 1m and tape it before you place the lens ring.

    In PTGui set the lens as a 9mm lens.
    Which body do you like to use? D800?

      Thanks Heinz.

      Yes, I use a D800e. If I like the image quality enough to keep the lens, I will be using it (at least initially) with my RS-1.

        I don't suppose anyone would be willing to share the correct rail settings for RS-1/Nikon D800/Samyang 8mm? Please?
