i am afraid that you will not get anything wider than your kitlens for 100 bucks..

i thing 10-17 FE will suit will get 12mm FOV at long end with acceptable barrel distortion and get FE effect at the wide end..

The DA10-17 is the lens that drove me to Pentax in the first place. It was part of my first kit (K20D, DA10-17, DA18-250, FA50/1.4, AF360) and I love it dearly. But it is a specialty lens. I find myself using a Zenitar 16/2.8 more, mostly because the Zen is faster -- the 10-17 is only f/4.5 at 16mm, which is a big difference. US$130 for a Zen is a *steal*. Defished, it's effectively 12mm in FOV. 'Twere me, I'd go for the Zen. Hey, wanna get funky? Get a cheap PK macro tube set for US$8, put 12-20mm extension under the Zen, and shoot some awesome macros, eh?
