DA 10-17 on full frame?

I'm interested in getting a fisheye lens, for use on film and digital, and wondering if anyone had any pictures taken with the pentax (or tokina) DA 10-17 fisheye on full frame film or digital.

Per the following link, it looks like the answer may be yes and no?...

I haven't taken any pictures with it, but just mounting it on my k1000, you can see the lens hood all around through the viewfinder so it doesn't work for full frame cameras.

What about at 17mm? The thread I posted earlier I thought seemed to suggest that it might be ok once fully "zoomed"?

If your goal is to get full coverage across the frame (180 degress) on film you need a lends designed for full frame, like the Pentax F 17-28mm Fisheye zoom.
On a digital canera you will get less than 180 degrees coverage - but still a respectable coverage:

Ok, but assuming there is no vignetting at 17mm, there would be a 180 degree diagonal FOV, correct? Going wider should give a greater than 180 degree FOV, until the hood cuts off the edges, right?
