Pentax 10-17mm Fisheye Review
In-depth review of Pentax's widest lens
By PF Staff in Review Announcements on Apr 8, 2013
Today we're happy to be bringing you our in-depth review of the Pentax 10-17mm fisheye zoom, which is the widest lens in the current Pentax lineup. At the wide end, it offers a diagonal field of view of 180 degrees, which makes it an excellent choice for photographing interiors (i.e. houses, cars, or boats) as well as landscapes. As it is a fisheye lens, it produces pronounced geometric distortion in the corners, which leads to a interesting artistics.
In the US, the 10-17mm fisheye is currently available for $529, and unlike many other lenses, its price does not seem to fluctuate much.
We are now only two lenses short (DA* 200mm and DA* 60-250mm) of having in-depth reviews of the entire (current) Pentax lens lineup! To read our other reviews, please visit the in-depth lens review index.
We expect to publish our review of the DA* 60-250mm later this month, and the DA* 200mm review shortly afterward. After these are posted, we will focus on improving reviews that were posted in 2010 and 2011, reviewing Sigma lenses, and reviewing various interesting cameras by other manufacturers.
