  • Excerpt: While my time to use it has been limited, I have found it to be a well made compact lens that produces excellent pictures. Yes it is a fisheye lens but the images are easily "de-fished" with software such as Lightroom.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • Excerpt: If You want something wider than 18mm and have always wanted a fisheye this is a good choice. It covers the widest needs and focuses at six inches for dramatic effect. Very compact but nicely built, and just heavy enough to balance out the camera.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Versetile Super Wide
  • Cons: Noisy auto focus

  • Excerpt: Honestly, I've been thinking about this lens for years. I was torn between the wide field-of-view and worried that I would get bored of the fisheye effect. Well, I didn't. This is a fun lens and very versatile because it zooms unlike most fisheye lenses.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Corner Softness, Poor in Low Light

  • Excerpt: Nice compact wide angle to fisheye lens. Great for candid shots in tight crowded situations, parties, street photography etc. Also enables one to be creative in landscape photos. Interesting night photography effects.

  • Excerpt: Amazing piece of glass... I had no idea how much fun a lens like this was. - I purchased during my NYC trip from Aus and produced some amazing city photos. The usual great Pentax quality pushed me to purchase this one over the Sigma. But all in all it just produced a better picture.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

  • Summary: Not quite a 180 deg. cover, loads of distortion for the 'creative look' which is what I wanted to access, nice light weight.
