Dragging up an old post I know, but now we're on LR3 I'm wondering if the 10-17 is a viable (and much cheaper option) than the 12-24 as attilaworx lens profile seems to work very well.
Composition could be a bit of a challenge as the shot will look very different after PP but what do you guys think?

Hey guys,

I was looking for a profile for de-fishing the Pentax fisheye and couldn't find anything so I sat down and made my own. Here's a test shot with default correction settings (sorry about the toilet... It was the best high contrast scene with lots of lines that I could find) :

after:

If you want to have a go, I uploaded my profile here:

I think the fisheye is a viable option since it's cheaper, smaller, lighter and wider than the 12-24. You'll lose some detail and a huge chunk of pixels when straightening so it might not be an option for people who are extremely into subpixel accurate sharpness and contrast...

But the lens correction is VERY good at controlling the fisheye's shortcomings like the CA for example.

You still get some edge softness and loss of detail but overall I think it's a winner!
