Early last week, 7Artisans teased a couple of new lenses on Chinese social media. Now, one of those lenses has been announced. It was initially assumed that this was going to be a lens designed for drones, due to the DJI Inspire in the background of the teaser photo, but it’s actually designed for use with APS-C (Sony E, Fuji X, Canon EF-M but no Nikon Z, apparently) and Micro Four Thirds cameras.
The new 7Artisans 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye is an APS-C lens that offers a whopping 225° field of view, which means it can pretty much see behind itself. It has an all-metal construction, but given its relatively low weight of 210g, they also say it can be mounted on the DJI Inspire X5 cameras for a “unique perspective” that hasn’t been possible from the air before.
