Good quality and great fun

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for the pleasure of playing around with fisheye shots--and that pleasure has been fully realized. Even more, though, I really like the quality of the lens, the sharpness and good color definition I get when using it. The auto focus is extremely fast and responsive as well. Also, the lens feels solid and well-built without being bulky, which is great when you want to put it in your backpack and carry it with you to work.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

PhotogBob, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Very easy to get used to fish eye effect. Can get some wild shots at 10-14mm. Usefull as a normal wide angle at 15-17mm setting. Very good contrast and color. Good weight on K511S. Very close focusing for almost macro shots. Very good for landscapes,if you watch the horizon.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

it's a good lens

  • Excerpt: Hello, to be honest I'm French and I came to the USA a few days. I decide to buy this lens not on a whim but I thought for a long time. So I price my creative mind to tell you that this fish-eye is exactly for you. Whether you want to take landscapes, buildings, people. You will be conquered your first images. I counsel you, it's light takes up little space. It is flexible in use. So if you have a lot of imagination. This lens you expect.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

LOVE this lens!

  • Summary: People seem to think fisheye is sort of a specialized type of lens, but I'll be damned if I'm not playing around with this constantly. It takes absolutely gorgeous photos on my K-3, especially of flowers. The only complaint is some chromatic aberrations (especially in mid-day), but hey, isn't that to be expected? If you're interested in a fisheye/ultra-wide angle, I highly recommend this lens. Just realize that you need to get in CLOSE.

Auto Focus AND Fishiness Finesse

M. Johnson "Avid Reader", Amazon

  • Summary: Most of the cheap fish-eye lenses I found were manual lenses. This is OEM and auto focus as well as supporting the other functions of my K-5 body. Been playing with it and it's as quick to focus as my other Pentax DA lenses. Happy yo add it to my growing lens collection.

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.
  • Pros: Compact, good build, fun
  • Cons: Fringing and CA
