Pentax FA* 200 macro would be a fine lens to use.

I'm interested in fisheyes. I am into this Pentax 10-17 or Samyang 8mm, but I am not sure if I jump on it even if I find a bargain. I am afraid I might lose my interest after some time.

Another lens of my likes is the 50mm f/4 macro.
If you pull the trigger, go with the 10-17. It is one of my favorite lenses. I like that at 10 it is very fisheye, but at 17 the effect is more subtle. IMHO, that quality and being extremely wide make it a cool walk around for city shooting. Plus it always inspires me to do something creative.

50-55mm f/1.2 lenses catch may attention very much too. especially after trying out the pentax k 50 f/1.2 some time ago. one day I will own one of those f/1.2 crazies.

I don't think I could say just one lens. Right now, I'm trying to get a FA* 24mm. Besides that I'd like the 43 and 77 limiteds as well as an auto-focus f1.2 lens that doesn't actually exist in k-mount. Oh, and some quality fast ranged lenses like say a 50-135mm f2.8 or something, but honestly I think I'd prefer a continuous max f4 aperture AF zoom lens, but again... I don't think those exist. My most favored lenses are ones that have internal focus and internal zoom (if it is a zoom lens).

I desire a SMC Pentax-A 50mm F2.8 Macro. I own a Vivitar 55mm 1:2.8 macro that is sharp, but I want that Pentax.

Sigma want one. Could finally attain stunning results at telephoto lengths!

On a side note - Still loving my Helios 58mm.

KEH has my Vivitar for about $15 but not in the right mount and sometimes they run free ship. I'm getting really temped to pull a Rico here. They have Minolta and they have Olympus but no Pentax. $15 no ship it might be worth it to swap out a lens mount, lol.

If I could afford it, a 10-17.

I can't afford it, so I'll make do with the Vivitar (or zenitar, I can never remember) 16mm fish.

Otherwise, a sears 135mm glow, or…

A kiron 28mm f2.

It's worth robbing a minimart to get one.

Zenitar. Just think of Zen. What is the sound of one lens cracking?

Otherwise, a sears 135mm glow, or…
I wish I hadn't sold mine.

A kiron 28mm f2.
Think about the Komine 28/2 CFWA also.
