Sigma 10-20 as a fish eye

I'm concider to buy a Pentax 10-17 fish eye but read somewere that you can make with the right filter a fish eye from Sigma 10-20
Is this true and does someone have experience with this filter because actually can't permit any more lenses this year to buy

It is a adapter lens that you screw on to the front of the lens like a filter.

Don't waste you money and save for the 10-17.

+1 Those filters make the image suck... I fell for a wide angle converter (basically same thing), wow was I disappointed. Don't waste your money. Just get the 10-17 if you want fisheye.
