Fantastic lens but a few minor issues

Steve C., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love it! I'm still giving it 5 stars even though I have a few complaints. I use this for real estate photography. I had been reluctant to buy it because almost all reviews were about fisheye, fisheye, fisheye. However it is very workable for indoor use if given the chance.

Outstanding landscapes, beautiful skies

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens specifically for a long trip to the canyons in Arizona and Utah. I used it more than I expected: This lens produces stunning images - in the fish-eye as well as in the wide-angle range.

Pentax DA 10-17

GAR, B&H Photo
21 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Love the ultra wide angle range of this lens. I also have the 16-45 but find that the DA 10-17 adds a whole other dimension to ultra wide angle perspective. I mostly use this for landscapes but it clearly has some very interesting potential for architecture and bringing a different perspective to...

Impressive, but watch out for that front element

  • Summary: Sometimes you just need to go to the extreme - in this case it is really wide angle. In my old Canon film-camera days, I had the 15mm 2.8 fisheye which was an even bigger chunk of glass because of its speed.

Fun Lens

George, B&H Photo
10 November 2015
  • Excerpt: Lets you get some interesting shots you wouldn't otherwise be able to shoot. See attached shot of ICBMs from Air Force Musuem taken with my K-3. Note on the spec quoting 180 deg angle of view--this is across the diagonals. You don't get 180 deg horizontally.

Versatile Wide Angle

Rocket Man, B&H Photo
17 October 2015
  • Excerpt: Great lens for close quarters. More than sharp enough for landscapes and interior shots as long as the main subjects are near the center of the frame. Corners can be a bit soft but not terribly so. For the price it is a welcome addition to my Pentax lineup.

Need a wide angle with options? This is it.

TravelerSteve, B&H Photo
18 September 2015
  • Excerpt: The lens is crystal clear from 10mm to 17mm, which is expected of a Pentax lens. I have several prime lens but needed one with extreme wide capability. I considered another prime lens but decided ton with the zoom lens and am satisfied with the decision.The 10mm has the fisheye effect which has...

Pleasantly surprised

Dan, B&H Photo
9 September 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens in hopes of having some fun with the ultra wide angle effects. Haven't used it a lot yet, but so far I am surprised and impressed by its high quality. The images are tack sharp throughout the zoom range with a rendering that can look almost three-dimensional.

great lens

ryem3, B&H Photo
21 August 2015
  • Excerpt: General purpose use for landscapes and outdoor shots. Lens was great on a recent trip for shooting large rooms and buildings from up close. At 17 mm it is super wide with minimal distortion, yet goes to full fisheye at 10 mm - really great zoom range.

Unique Lens

LadyCuddles, B&H Photo
14 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I have never used a fish eye lens in my photo life, but not only seen what can be done with one, but also had one in my list of things to get. This lens is extremely fun, and very unique.
