This 03 fisheye lens expands the fun factor and usefulness of the Pentax Q into aerial pole photography
5 January 2014
Summary: This is one of the least expensive fish eye lenses available and yet makes the Pentax Q truly versatile and fun! It's pretty basic, fixed aperture at 5.6, simple un-dampened focus ring, plastic mount and construction. At first I was disappointed with results from the 03 lens, the images looked soft and with lacked contrast. Then after some experimenting I came up with the following settings to maximize image quality: - Keep ISO below 400, and below 250 whenever possible.
Summary: i have never used a fisheye but this is a fun little lens...wish i could autoficus but knew that before i bought it...the infinity on the focus is off so don't plan on focusing for long distance and just leaving it wide open..none of these issues i see as negatives..price is good and it's a nice little lens..
Summary: I love the petite size and effect it gives off. It's light but strangely durable enough to withstand it rubbing against my chest as it swayed while I walked. Definitely a good must have fun lens for Q owners.
