Help info please: SMC Pentax Asahi 1:3.5 15mm fisheye

Dear Pentax forum readers,

Hereby this post in order to hopefully obtain more information regarding my:
SMC Pentax Asahi 1:3.5 15mm fisheye lens

If someone could provide me more info regarding my lens.
After some little research i came across this forum page. I have been told many times this is a rather special lens but there excist different types as in 'K' or 'A' but have no clue how i can determine what type my lens is.

I have attached some pictures to this thread.
Looking forward to your reply.

Many thanks in advanced.
With kind regards,
Zola

Welcome to the forum!

You have the second version (1977-1984) of the regular K series 15/3.5.

Note this is not a fisheye lens, it's a rectilinear lens.

Phil.

Welcome to the Forum!

It is one of the original K mount lenses made immediately after Pentax moved from the M42 screw lens mount to the K mount. Here is the page from the Forum's lens database.Here is some additional information.Also, here are two pages from evilbay. Lenses for sale, and then lenses that have actually sold in the recent past.

That's quite the find, there. Not a common lens for sure.
