I posted last week that Meike had announced a new 7.5mm fisheye lens for APS-C format cameras. Not content to stop there, the company has now announced a 12mm f2.0 manual focus lens for the same format. While I think it's great that there are optics firms bent on producing low cost lenses - the new model is priced at only $189 - for cash-starved photographers, I have to wonder if the low cost is not attained at a significant sacrifice of quality. If I take a chance on the new fisheye lens once it becomes available at B&H, I'll post my findings here after having tried it on my MFT Lumix G9. I doubt, though, that I'll be purchasing the new 12mm entry.
