Great shots- happy to hear you're enjoying it I think it might be better on crop as I found the corners/edges to really struggle on FF.

Thanks Adam. I read many reviews about it, but decided to give it a try anyway.
I am using it with A7r. As you see, edges and corners are really good.

That lens has been on my shopping list for about twenty years. Still looking for a good copy

Yep the K18/3.5 is one of my favourite UWA lenses! I use it on my Pentax film bodies and the built-in filters are great.

The OEM plastic clip-on hood is hard to find, but well worth the cost.

I wish to sell mine, because I have not been using it lately, and I'm needing some cash now, but I don't know how, because I don't live in America
