View topic - Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens for micro four thirds announced
Underwater Photography Guide Forums
All Things Underwater Photography
It's a F3.5 lens with a 180 degree field of view (diagonal), closest focus distance of 4 inches (10cm) - which is not as good as the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye, which has a closest focus distance of less than half of that. I estimate the USA price will be around $900, it's 730 pounds in the UK - quite pricey! It should come out sometime this summer.
More importantly, let's see if there is a camera/housing that will support this underwater. 10bar is making a housing for the Oly E-PL1 with interchangeable ports (unlike the Oly housing).
