Samsung Announces new 10mm F3.5 Fisheye, Thinnest on the Market

By Anthony Thurston on June 11th 2013

Let’s be honest everyone, Samsung is not a company that we usually talk about in regards to professional cameras or awesome lenses. They are hoping to change that though with a rash of new cameras and lenses being released in the last few months, the latest one being announced today: A new 10mm F3.5 Fisheye lens that is boasted as the thinnest on the market currently.

Looks like a neat little lens, but not really anything to write home about from where I am standing. If Samsung is really serious about jumping in the pool with the big boys they are going to have to do better than this.
