Hey yall,
 
Anyone tried the Meike 6.5mm fisheye for aps-c? Can't seem to find any reviews or image samples online. Maybe not out yet?
 
Found it on Amazon but no reviews there either.
 
Cheers,
Jogi

Cheers,

I saw a review on amazon, with pictures included. It appears to be a circle fisheye, much like the lens baby one. And the reviewer used it on an Olympus camera: 
meike 65

Not that interesting in my opinion, I'm better off with a diagonal fisheye, like the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 or Sony 16mm+fisheye converter.

Prolly useful on a droneycopter, or even on a kite :-)   

  

Given the 4/3 sample you posted, this line from the 

linked seller page appears to be an inaccurate spec:  

  

"Ultra-190 Grad Diagonal Sichtfeld-für

APS-C Size Image Formate"   

  

Such a DIAGONAL FoV would indicate a "full frame 

fisheye" but it's apparent from the posted 4/3 sample 

that on an APSC this would be "circular fisheye", and 

that makes sense cuz 6.5mm X 1.5 crop factor equals 

a 10mm "FF equivalent FL". Most FF circular fisheyes 

are 8mm, so 10mm should certainly be close enuf. A 

typical "190 Grad Diagonal Sichtfeld " [note diagonal 

means implies "full frame fisheye" in fish-speak] has 

always been 15 or 16mm.

In case anyone is interested, here are a few samples:

It's a good lens. Easily worth more than what they're charging for it.
