Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Fish eye lenses open unusual perspectives. With extraordinary optical characteristics this lens substantially extends your creative possibilities. It zooms steplessly through a picture angle of 180 to 100 degrees, which permits a new level of dramatic imaging nuances. With the special optical design you can realize striking macro photographs from a distance of only 2.5cm. Employing ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, this lens effectively overcomes chromatic aberation throughout the image - an effect particularly noticable with enlargements. What's more, the front lens element is dirt and water repellent with the unique PENTAX SP protective coating.

    I obviously plucked up the courage to buy a fish-eye lens for my Pentax K7, and it was well worth getting this one! Being able to zoom from a full 180 degrees diagonal to an almost undistorted extra-wide angle is excellent. It brings so much feeling and verve to the pictures, which are not possible with a standard wide angle lens.
    The use of a full circular fish-eye, whilst good at what it is, is very gimmicky and loses it's appeal to me after a couple. This lens however is not a flash in the pan and is one of my favourite lenses and is almost always in my camera bag.
    The quality and sharpness is excellent and the colour rendition is top notch.
    If you were to get one of these, I am sure you will never regret it, I would not be parted from mine!

    This is a fantastic lens when coupled with my K5. Great for use in confined spaces to produce creative distorted images. Nothing remains straight - but that is the point of getting a fisheye lens!

    Love it.
    Gorgeous.
    Cant fit filters but that is what Photoshop is for :-)
    I hand held some Lee filters (The x8ND) in front of this for 30 seconds.
    The lens was on my K-5D ii on my tripod, and it was not a hardship to do this.
    It is a lovely wide angle lens indeed.
    Get one.

    I have had this lens for 5 months now and I think it has been my main lens for that time, but IT IS A FISHEYE. Straight lines will be distorted, the optical quality is compromised because IT IS A FISHEYE, so you will see chromatic abberation and some general softening of the image. But you have to zoom in on the image to see this. Anyway, you buy a fisheye for the effect if gives. Search fisheye on flick if you are not sure what results you will get. I love wide, so I love this lens!! Great for 360 degree immersive panoramas (you know those ones where you can pan around a scene). Same as the Tokina 10-17 in case you do not have a Pentax or Samsung DSLR. Interestingly, this will give a full frame on a film or 1:1 sensor camera. You can see the protective 'hood', but if you zoom to about 13mm it is no longer visible and it is still much wider than anything else.

    6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. Palmann on 10 Dec 2007
    Perhaps I expected too much from this little lens. It's build quality is good, it is compact and quite light.
    It has two problems which were enough for me to send it back for a refund. The first is the softness of the images, at any aperture the image is smudgy. Second up is very pronounced purple fringing of highlights.
    Overall a poor show.
