    The pics looks good, lens seems fast... buy like you say still a bit "fishy" ... It will be good as a fun lens

    I think the selling point for pentax is as long as its k-mount , it can fit and majority of all pentax lenses in the past and all lenses are this mount. the ones that need the adapter are the M42 ones that were available before the kmount was introduced.

    The M42 mounts can be used on ANY camera with a suitable adapter.

    It is manual and fisheye. But it is fast and it is cheap... ~USD$120 +$30 for delivery.

    DSLR 1.5X crop lessen the fisheye effect.

    Anyone has tried this lens ? Is it good ?
    Actually there is a Zenitar 16mm F2.8 fisheye lens for Pentax K mount. It's quite good optically, and build quality is okay too. I had one for a short while, quite liked it.

    You can find some citywalk photos I took over a year ago:

    A couple samples from above post (both were defished by PTLens in CS2):





    You can get this lens for abit less than US$140 from eBay brand new, and it's a K mount lens, so you don't need an adapter for it

    Cheers and happy shooting.

    mmm...the curvature is such that its called distortion for good image and yet not "fish-eye" enough for a fish eye lens. I think it would have performed better on the film slr instead?

    but the image is nice and contrasty...
