Pros: Very small size and therefore light, has the versatility of the zoom, minimum focus distance of 14cm

Cons: It's not WR, I'd be comfortable for the FF but it's not compatible

Opinion: This was the first lens I purchased when I switched to digital SLR, I was always intrigued by the fish eye vision of the world at full frame and with this lens I had a lot of fun. It Has the versatility of the zoom and being small and light you carry it around willingly as a second lens or on a second camera body. At 17mm The distortions are easily corrected, as has already been said, and the backlights do not generate devastating reflexes, indeed they are very contained. The colors are saturated and bright as in the Pentax tradition. With the horizon at the center of the lens there is no distortion, but then why buy a fish eye?

Pros: Fantastic colors, accentuated microcontrast, is the only fish-eye on the market that can mount filters, dimensions, versatility.

Cons: Purple fringing really accentuated, lack of tropicalization.

Opinion: The Pentax 10-17 / 3.5-4.5 fish-eye is a fantastic goal. Now I have it for more than two years and there is no occasion where you do not take it with me.rnUnlike the "normal" fish-eye, the Pentax has a couple of interesting features: it is zoom, and can mount filters a vite.rn1) As for the zoom, unlike for example the Canon 8-15, Pentax does not pass from circular to diagonal. The zoom is a true zoom: at 10mm the lens is a complete fisheye, at 17mm it is a "cropped" fish-eye, which means that it loses some of the typical deformation to become a slightly distorted wide-angle lens.rnThis, combined with the fact that the lens is really small, manageable and autofocus, makes it a great companion wide-angle for any type of output. "Defishare" via software this lens from 14 to 17mm is really easy, and the results are very good. But even without these steps, but only by learning a little to compose, at 17mm you can fare interesting photos and without the deformation note particularly.rn2) On 10-17 you can mount screw filters 58mm, even if only the maximum focal length of 17mm, penalty vignetting or full framing of the filter.rnThe filter should be screwed into the lens hood integrated petal, which is knurled inside and holds the thread perfectly and without any risk; for a good result it is then necessary to "close" the petal of the lens hood, with a black cloth, a strip of black velcro, a wide black rubber band or whatever you want.rnrnThe use for the landscape, especially natural, is highly recommended: wider focal ones just keep the horizon at the center to prevent distortion annoying, the narrower focal simply defishare on Lightroom (which already has the integrated profile to do it). In addition, the ability to use filters greatly increases the creativity already inherent in this type of lens.rnEsing small and light, and so versatile, on special occasions canò also replace a normal wide angle rectinear.rnrnIo I use it with extreme satisfaction even during the concerts: the autofocus helps a lot, and even here the fact that it is a zoom from several creative possibilities on how to set the photo.

Pros: Sharpness in the center good, small and relatively light, autofocus not very fast but reliable

Cons: Focus ring too soft, is not a fixed f / 3.5, sharpness at the edges to ta not exceptional

Opinion: Purchased used at a good price, it is an interesting and in some ways amusing optics. The sharpness in the center is good even at full aperture, but at the edges leaves a little 'to be desired, especially at shorter focal lengths, but closing at f / 5.6 everything is resolved. The autofocus is not particularly fast (but on a lens like that you do not need a lightning) but it is accurate. Problems start when you want to focus manually; the ring is too soft and rotates as soon as you touch it, with the risk of getting blurred shots. In some cases it may even be useful to hold it in place with a piece of tape. It is also very thin and those with big hands struggle to maneuver it. Apart from this, I would recommend this lens to those who love the genre and do not want to spend a fortune. Rating 8

Pros: Sharpness, size, can be defishato with an angle of view similar all'8-16, excellent construction with fixed lens hood metal

Cons: No WR, ring the focus moves with the slightest touch, they can not be used filters (except at 17mm)

Opinion: I had this lens for about 6 months, sold just because I'm reorganizing my Pentax kit to have only optical WR.rnL'obiettivo is excellent, with a sharpness like 8-16 sigma (which I also had it for about 1 year and a half). On the edges it is obviously weaker ... But not as much as you might think! rnAnche fish the effect is sufficiently soft, both I and many of my friends incredibly pleasant booze the fish effect on people than the deformation of ultragrandangolare.rnL'unico real problem I can indicate is that the focus ring is too light, almost insubstantial, which characterizes all the DA of the period (eg f4 17-70, 18-55, etc.)
