Budget lens manufacturer Pergear has announced its new 10mm F5.6 Pancake Fisheye Lens for APS-C camera systems.
The full-manual lens is constructed of six elements in four groups. Pergear doesn’t specify whether any specific optical elements are used, but does says the front element has a multi-layer coating ‘to suppress flare and ghosting.’ Other features include a 15cm (5.9″) minimum focusing distance, a built-in petal-shaped lens hood.
The lens is constructed entirely of metal and measures in at 5cm (2″) in diameter, 3.2cm (1.26″) tall and weighs only 120g (4.2oz).
Below is a trio of low-resolution sample images, provided by Pergear:
The Pergear 10mm F5.6 Pancake Fisheye Lens is available for only $89 for Fujifilm X mount, Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount and Sony E mount APS-C camera systems. It’s available to purchase on Pergear’s website, as well as Amazon (Fujifilm X mount, MFT mount and Sony E mount).
What tripod can support a 600mm lens and still go on a long hike into the wilderness? We test out six higher-end, thick-legged, modular tripods that are comfortably tall and capable of supporting tremendous amounts of gear. This group review compares all six models, examining their features, functions and ergonomics in use, both in the studio and out in the field.
The Panasonic GH5M2 is a refresh, rather than complete reworking, of the company’s image-stabilized, video focused GH5. We didn’t find live streaming as reliable as we’d hoped but we appreciated the improved feature set.
Sigma’s designed-for-mirrorless 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS ‘Sports’ lens provides great image quality across a wide zoom range – get all the ins and outs of how this lens performs in our field review.
A little over a year after releasing the OM 4, DJI returns with the OM 5, a smaller, more capable model. It’s can deliver great results, though as we found, not without a little bit of practice.
