pentax 17mm or sigma 15mm

Hey all,

Trying to decide between the pentax 17mm and sigma 15mm. Any recommendations? Price is similar. I'd be taking mainly landscape pictures with it.

Is this on digital or film? I assume you're talking about the old K 17 f/4 fisheye? I can't say I've tried either of these but that Sigma is pretty dark pricey. Have you considered the much less expensive 16mm Zenit f/2.8 fisheye? Or the DA 10-17 f/3.5-4.5 fisheye zoom?

I assume you are familiar with the difference between a fisheye lens and a rectillinear-corrected wide-angle lens?
