One of the best Pentax DA lenses ever.

Thank you. All the ones I have posted here are from the (very photogenic) Gippsland region in eastern Victoria, Australia.

Thanks! Pretty far from Europe, but maybe I can get there one day...

Very kind of you Mircea. One thing about an ultrawide lens is that it makes you concentrate on composition - it makes me look for foreground interest, lines, patterns, balance, etc. It is possible to take really bad shots with a UWA lens if you don't!

12mm f10 (I have a canvas print of this image. It's one of my favourites.)

Hi Des

Lovely work there.
The 12 - 24 is showing its ' stuff ' in your hands.

Thanks very much Dave. It's a pity if the lens has been discontinued - it provides a more affordable and lighter-weight alternative to the DA*11-18 f2.8. A refresh with HD coatings would be welcome. The range is useful too - running to 24mm means fewer lens changes and a viable kit with just a telephoto lens and a prime in the 28-50mm range.

Hi Des

I have one and don't use it enough ... the 21 ltd ' lives ' on the camera.
One with the newer HD coatings should do quite well.

The 12-24 plus 55-300 makes for a very light and versatile kit for me. For more versatility (and weight) I sometimes add the FA 100/2.8 macro. It can certainly bring out distant views nicely. This bridge is between our house, North of the Elk River in a subdivision and the main centre of Sparwood.
