Hyperfocal Distance for Peleng 8mm F/3.5

( Canon 40D, 30D, 20D, 10D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 1000D)


The concept of hyperfocal distance is easy to understand: focus a lens at the hyperfocal distance and everything in the photograph from some near distance to infinity will be sharp. Landscape photographs are often taken with the lens focused at the hyperfocal distance; near and distant objects are sharp in the photos.


F-number 3.5 4 5.68 11 16
Hyperfocal distance, m1.00.90.640.450.330.22


It is important to note here that you should not change the focus after the lens has been focused at the hyperfocal distance.

My colleague who just returned from Moscow bought me a new example of Belomo's production: Peleng fisheye lens. My purchase looked like a low-price carton box with a low-price quasi-leather case inside. Thats how the very lens is packaged. I also found an adapter for Nikon and 3 filters: yellow, red, UV. Nice kitting. First of all, I liked the lenscap as it fits better and doesn't seem to slip away as it did caps of older lenses because of the wide opened inner ring. In my lens there is some cell foam so that I will never loose the cap. The quality of construction seemed to me rather reliable as it is fully metal.

General Impressions:

This is an amusing lens. I am not really sorry that i bought about buying it, its worth money i paid. And the very fact that it has such drawbacks as flare, lateral colour error and internal reflection testifies that this lens is for amateurs who would like to have fun taking circular pictures. For example, pictures of sky and strangely distorted landscapes. Semi-fisheye adapter costs practically the same but Peleng lens is better choice. At least because it is a full-fledged lens.

How it works and a little bit of useful tips.

-In my opinion, this lens captures the sharpest photos at f5.6-f16. Please, remember that it is a completely manual lens so you should lock it when you choose aperture. I defined diaphragm setting f8-11as the most appropriate to this lens.
-Focus ring. I am a little experienced in lenses like my own so now i prefer M-mode (macro) on the focus ring and no more worries. This simple tip helps me to capture objects close and far and my pictures will be sharp.
