Difference between Century .3x Mark 1 and 2?

I was just wondering if anyone had any info on specific differences between the Mark I and Mark II Century Optics .3x fisheyes.

I'm kinda curious if they are optically different at all.

Thanks

I don't think anyone knows, sorry. I have no personal experience with the products, nor do I know anyone that does. I also find no reference to the Mark 1 or 2. Is there a mention on their site or have you seen two different models. Does it refer to the larger version (Death and Baby Death)? Any skate boarders or Xtreme sports shooters know?

No problem .It's a pretty cool site dealing with skateboarding videography.

I owned the MKI 58mm screw-mount for my TRV900 a few years ago, then sold that lens on eBay to get the MUCH lighter and more compact MKII 37mm (Baby Death) and only noticed a slight difference between them. The glass quality in both is absolutely perfect, but the wideness is a little bit more on the MKI. I now use the MKII baby death on my PC9, and I have an MKII for my VX2000. bayonet...i wish i'd kept my MKI 58mm as it was MUCH wider than the MKII.

It's almost a good thing though, because the MKII isn't quite as wide which means I can be a little further away while filming skateboarding, which is alot safer (1-2 more feet away could have saved me from many accidents with the MKI)
