    I gather it has 190 degree vision

    I get the video and drone stuff but would you ever take a photo with it.... for instance on top of a viewpoint such as the Shard to show London spread out in front of you?

    Or would the bendy bits mean you'd be better doing a panorama stitch ?
    It would ideal for ground reconnaissance,

    And is this the first time anyone has produced a dual lens ?
    Yes, moving smartly away from my flippant initial post, the lens is apparently intended for Virtual Reality applications.

    It would be more than useful to the military especially for drone work. Extra WA lens are already being used for surveillance and reconnaissance purposes. I frequently use the 14mm f2.8.

    Handy to get a shot of what’s going on behind you at the same time as the shot in front!

    Not something I will be buying then as not a pretty sight, great for the pornographers though.

    I have read that the field of view of this lens is so wide that if you look through the viewfinder, you can see your own backside!
Working...
