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.
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.
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...
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
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.
Excerpt: Right on the money. Bravo. I love it. My shots are just as good as the pros. Only issue here is it isn't fast in going to the next shot. I compensate by giving it a second per shot instead of continuous. Works excellent this way!
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
