Chinese optical manufacturer Kamlan Optical has announced its next lens will be a 7. 5mm F3. 2 fisheye for the Micro Four Thirds system. The lens joins an existing line-up of manual focus primes for APS-C and MFT systems, and will be shown at the CP+ show later this month.
The FS 7. 5mm f/3. 2 will provide an angle of view of 160° with a construction that consists of seven elements in six groups. It will focus as close as 10cm and will have a minimum aperture of F16. The manufacturer says the lens will measure 48x58mm, will weigh 250g and it will be impossible to mount a filter in the conventional way because of the shape of the built-in hood.
According to DC Watch, the price in Japan will be about 25,000 yen, which is approximately $230. For more information see the Kalman website. dpreview.com
