Fish Eye and Wide Angle Lens


I am new to photography and looking for a wide angle and fish eye lens for my new K20d and was wondering what anyone thought to these.

0.42x FishEye /WideAngle Lens for Pentax *ist, K100D, K20D, others: .42xBlackPentax Camera Works Northwest Opteka .35x HD² Super Wide Angle Panoramic Macro Fisheye Lens for Pentax K200D, K110D, K100D, K20D, K10D, & *ist Digital SLR Camera -: Camera & Photo

Has anyone used them or heard if they are okay. As I said I am not looking for anything flash or amazing just a lens to have some fun to begin with while I am learning.

Many Thanks

I don't know about that opteka lens, but I'd definitely stay away from the first option. Those add ons are not worth the money, they tend to deteriorate the IQ too much and you end up buying the real thing later.
