Laowa has announced a new 4mm lens for micro four thirds and the various APS-C mounts.
The lens will cost $200 and is available for the Fujifilm X-Mount, Canon M-Mount, Sony E Mount and the Micro Four Thirds mount.
It looks like this lens was designed for MFT and they probably give you an adapter for the APS-CC mounts. I’m still looking for more information.

This is a strange announcement because it’s pushed as though it’s a MFT lens, however, they also offer it in APS-C. Are all the samples they shot and show MFT? If that is the case then you’ll just have a small circle in the center of your frame rather than a circle that extends to the top and bottom.
Keep that in mind if you buy this for APS-C. There will probably be very large borders around that circular image.
What does 4mm fisheye look like?
