    Has anyone compared the output of these two fisheye solutions on FF? I have played with the Rokinon on my A7RII and it works pretty well but I am curious about how much better the FE 28 fisheye covnertor might be if at all. I have tried it at both FF and crop. One advantage of the Rokinon is size. It is really tiny.

    Isn't the 8mm rokinon an aps-c lens?

    Yes it is APs-c. That is the point. It works very well in crop mode on FF. I am curious about what is gained with the Fisheye converter for the FE 28 over using the APS-C Rokinon in crop. What is lost for sure is small size and weight. The converter seems to weigh over a pound.
