A Look At The Meike 6-11mm Fisheye Zoom Lens

David Thorpe has been testing the Meike 6-11mm Fisheye Zoom - a rather specialist lens but is it useful?

| Interchangeable Lenses


Late last year, Meike introduced a 6-11mm f/3.5 fisheye zoom lens which, as David Thorpe says, is far from conventional but never-the-less, David thought he'd put it to the test to find out how useful the lens really is. 

"It's a specialised lens, as are all extreme focal length Micro Four Thirds lenses, whether 6mm or 300mm but could you find a use for it?" Asks David. 

Meike 6-11mm f/3.5 fisheye key features:

  • Focal length: 6-11mm, 
  • Aperture range: f/3.5-f/22
  • Min. focus distance: 0.15m (6mm) - 0.25m (11mm)
  • Lens construction: 8 groups 11 elements
  • Focus type: manual focus
  • Angle of view: 180°
  • Weight: 540g
