I’ve been looking for a fisheye lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M5, and had to decide between two choices:
- Samyang/Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5 @ USD $269 (approx RM 852)
- Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm F3.5 @ USD 639.95 (approx RM 2035)
I’ve been looking around and the cheapest I could find for the Samyang was through ebay.
For the Panasonic, the cheapest was on DDElectronics. It lists for RM 2,252 but when you check out you can get a 2% discount if you do a bank transfer, bringing the price to RM 2,206.96
Other lenses to consider
- Olympus 9-18 f/4.0-5.6 @ $599
- Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 @ $969
Yesterday I had to drive to Klang, then drive back, then go to Samanthas place, then go with her shopping. All in all, because of all this driving and waiting around I was able to listen to 2 and half hours of audio books.
Thats ridiculous. I wish I had started earlier so that I could have read/listened more books in my life.
I’ve been listening to audiobooks quite regularly on my drives, and can get in about 30-45 minutes a day. So that means I spend a lot of time just getting around. I noticed some days I can put in 2 hours. That’s ridiculous.
But I feel great about using this commute time listening to audio books as usually I get lost in my own thoughts. I feel like I’m putting good time to use.
