  • Interesting! Im wonder what that means if you actually want to walk around :) "This is not a lens that is designed to be manually focussed on the go. Instead it is designed to be preset at a distance and left"

  • I made some image samples with this lens.

  • Impressive! Any other thoughts about it in terms of build quality, focus ring, aperture ring, focus throw, etc?

  • This lens on a G7 seems like it would be such an awesome cheap set up for 360VR, anyone tried this?
