Meike Unveils a New 8mm f/2.8 for MFT Cameras

Meike has announced the release of a new 8mm f/2.8 lens for Micro Four Thirds camera systems. The fully manual lens provides a full-frame equivalent focal length of 16mm and offers a minimum focusing distance of just under 10 inches. The latest in the growing line of still image lenses, the new Meike 8mm f/2.8 is a fast ultra-wide-angle lens that the company promises has little distortion or chromatic aberration.

Meike has announced several lenses, including a 7.5mm f/2.8 lens for Micro Four Thirds, Sony E, Fujifilm X, Nikon Z, and Canon EF-M mounts that was released at the end of May and a 12mm f/2 APS-C lens that is available for Sony E-mount APS-C cameras, Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Nikon Z, and Micro Four Thirds.

The lens, which is fully manual and offers a 16mm full-frame equivalent focal length, is constructed of 17 elements in 12 groups, with multi-coated elements. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 25cm and has a 77mm front filter thread. Meike doesn’t specify the exact dimensions of the lens but does note it weighs 480g.

Other features include a knurled focus ring with standard distance calculations printed on the barrel for easy reference and an aperture control ring that controls an aperture range of f/2.8 through f/22.

The Meike 8mm f/2.8 comes with a lens cap and mount cover and is available for $400 either through Meike directly or through a set of authorized resellers.
