Penleng 8 mm

Anyone have one of these? If so what do you think of it. I think there are several versions of this under different brands.

Go for Samyang 8mm fisheye instead. It's cheaper and better than the Peleng. Also it has the A pin so you can use the lens in all modes on a Pentax camera.

as for angle of view, wouldnt the samyang be the same as the wide end of the Pentax 10-17mm?
I'd assume the 100ish dollar more would grant you less flare and CA.

The Samyang is arguably wider than the 10mm of the Pentax fisheye lens, and also has less distortion and less CA.
Check out this comparison with the Tokina 10-17mm which is the same as the Pentax 10-17mm:
