SMC Pentax DA10-17mm F4 Fisheye Zoom Lens
Posted By: Mans Hagberg, 01-10-2021, 03:40 AM

A lens for special purposes. Mine is for the APS format.


It is invaluable for rainbows, haloes and other ultra-wide sights. A double rainbow (102 degrees in diameter) fits comfortably in the APS format. It shows off-center round shapes with less deformations than other ultra-wide lenses. Off-center straight lines are bent and so need special care when composing a picture.


It is good for interior shots in cramped spaces and occasionally for special effects.


The new version of this lens can be used on a FF camera like the Pentax K1.

I prefer the rectilinear view that my Sigma 10-20mm lens {which was my nomination} gives my "APS-C" body - but you give a good explanation of your case.
