K-01 with Bower (samyang) fisheye

well i jumped on the bower fisheye deal from b+h and got it within less than a week to australia! so i took it out last night for a walk to an overpass near me and had a quick play with some long exposures. these are straight out of camera images with no post processing. aside from the selective colour one, thats the in camera filter. just thought i'd throw them up here if anyone was interested.
cant wait to play with this lens and camera some more. so far im having way more fun using this than my canon 60d . i think i may jump ship and sell off my canon gear soon and get a k-5 sometime this year, love the thought of weather sealing and weather sealed lenses that are affordable! (non L glass) haha.

it was $229 plus shipping. Such a fun lens. I prefer it to my sigma 10-20.
