Fixed fisheye or zoom?

Im looking at getting a fisheye lense to use with my K10D. m not sure weather i should get a fixed focal length like the pentax 8mm or a a zoom fisheye. Im confused. Please help.

Here'a a recent thread on this topic:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/32275-fisheye-...om-primes.html

I don't think pentax has ever made a production 8mm fisheye; if you want this level of fishiness (180 degree horizonal FOV, about 120 degree vertical FOV) your options would appear to be the Peleng or Sigma 8mm fisheyes.
