Bower 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye User Reviews

Great quality for the price
“We will use this lens for specific videos on our Canon 7D (this is a shared camera), especially for time-lapse effect and pictures of events when the flash is not welcome. This lens is great because it becomes a 167 degree lens, full-frame (no black corners) with the 7D. Almost no flares are visible; the tulip shaped lens hood seems to work OK. Based on the weight of the lens and contrast of the pictures, the quality is pretty good. “ – by Great quality for the price

Super wide and Sharp
“I use this mainly for filming professional BMX riding, and it perfect. It is very sharp, and very, very wide. For the price, this lens is everything it should be.” – by The Bean

“For a lens this inexpensive, it is extremely sharp when not at the extreme aperatures (f5.6-f11). It is really pretty decent even at the extremes. It is a very fun lens to use and allows one to take creative open shots which are not allowed without using much much more expensive alternatives. I would highly recommend this lens!” – by jr1234
