Just ordered one of these babies (can’t complain at $278) and will post up some pics as soon as it is in my sweaty hands :up:

Chris - I'll be interested in your findings - is this the full frame fisheye which is for crop cameras? (the one available under different brands (and even focal lengths) - e.g. Rokinon, Bower, ProOptic, etc).

This is a specific lens designed for the micro 4/3rds system. It has had some very good reviews and at half the price of the Panasonic 8mm it is exceptional value. It is sold in the US under the Rokinon name.
