Forum lens database FOV fishey lenses


There is some incomplete information about fishey lenses FOV.

According to the formulas given (Field of View Calculator - Rectilinear and Fisheye lenses - Bob Atkins Photography) I have made calculations in excell spreadsheet and got the following values:

SMC Pentax-DA 10-17mm


APS-C: 180-100 / 145-82

SMC Pentax-F 17-28mm


APS-C: 100-58 /82-49
Full frame: 159-91 /128-75
(values has to be checked, as at 17 mm the lens probably doesn't obey ideal equisolid fishey equation, and FOV might really be 180 diagonal)

Samyang 8mm


APS-C: 166 / 146 (values has to be checked, as the lens probably don't obey ideal stereographic fishey equation, and FOV might really be 180 diagonal)

I haven't checked other fisheyes in the database. Please remove the indication of horizontal FOV, or alternatively, please add values for horizontal FOV (what are the correct values I don't know, I am not sure if my calculated values are correct).

It looks like currently only the diagonal values are listed. Will check and add your computed values. Thanks!
