Panasonic Lumix dmc-gx1 fisheye

I am looking for a fisheye lens for the camera mentioned in the title. I've come across this fisheye lens:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/731983-REG/Panasonic_H_F008_Lumix_G_Fisheye_8mm_F3_5.html 
Suggestions for a better fisheye lens would be much appreciated. My budget is $700 and my camera is mirrorless. 
Here is a link to the camera: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/828150-REG/Panasonic_DMC_GX1XK_LUMIX_DMC_GX1_Digital_Camera.ht...

I have a gh2 and shoot m4/3 as well. For a fisheye try the Rokinon/Samyang/Bower 8mm or 7.5mm. The 8mm fisheye comes in multiple mounts but no m4/3 mount. You can get adapters and the lens is fully manual so you can still control manual. There's no autofocus however. The 7.5mm comes in a M4/3 mount and is a lot cheaper than the Panasonic lens and it's just as fast. It's even a little bit wider. it doesn't have autofocus or IS though.

The beauty about M4/3 is that you can get any lens and mount it with an adapter. Check out http://www.keh.com/ for vintage glass.
