Pentax 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED IF SMC P-DA Fish-Eye review by kh1234567890

Summary: Nicely made, not the lightest of lenses but well balanced and of solid, precision feel. Some fringing and CA effects are present. No internal reflections or flare, you can shoot straight into the sun without any problems. Fun to use but takes some practice since some shots work better than others. Great for shooting 360 degree panoramas, being arty or just messing about. I've had this lens for over a year now and the novelty has largely worn off.
nice little lens from Pentax with very small and compact size.

Summary: Nice small and compact lens for landscape shooting. I use this lens to shoot outdoor landscape and it came out really nice when I make the photo into HDR. 10mm shot was awesome to bring the whole view in. Must have for those into landscape photography or night photography like start trail.
Summary: Lens quality is on par with Pentax DA (non L) kit lenses. The only difference is it's heavier (probably because of the huge front element and metal built-in lens hood), and it focus' internally. I had never used a fisheye/ultrawide angle lens before this one, so I don't know what to look for comparatively regarding image quality. My eye thinks the IQ is great. There is some purple fringing towards the edges of the image, but I hear this is normal with fisheyes.
