Different types of lenses will give you varied results and effects on your images: macro lenses for close-up photography, APO lenses to correct chromatic aberration, soft-focus lenses to capture softer images, and wide-angle fish eye lenses to achieve a distorted effect, among others.
Yasuhara, the maker of the Nanoha macro lens, is set to unveil a new lens called Madoka. Madoka is touted as being the first 180-degree circle fisheye lens for mirrorless cameras.
Here are the specs for the lens:
- The lens will have f/4 aperture
- Compact size
- Length: about 40mm
- Diameter: about 60mm
- Weight: about 200g
The Sony E-mount version of the lens will be launched this Spring, and the Micro 4/3 version of the Yasuhara Madoka will be released a few months later. Aside from the lens, Yasuhara will also be releasing a special software program intended to be used in conjunction with the Madoka.[Photo Rumors]
