Item Description
This is one of the "stealth" lenses produced by Pentax. Not a ton of people have it. Of those that do, not a lot of people want to part with it. Neither do I, but (thanks to a serious car accident in January) we've lost my wife's income for a major part of the year. Selling for financial reasons, or it would be staying in my bag, as there isn't another lens that can duplicate what this lens can do.

Other lens manufacturers never even made an equivalent lens, back in the day. Most still don't. On a fullframe film camera it is the equiv. of the DA 10-17mm fisheye zoom (on a crop camera). However, on a crop camera (like today's APS-C Pentax digital DSLRs) the 17-28mm fisheye zoom becomes something even more wild: the 35mm equivalent of a 25-42mm zoom lens with fisheye lines. The bottom line is that this lens will let you take images that are a wee bit different than what anyone without it can produce. Sometimes you can't put your finger on it, just looking at the images. But as the imagemaker, you'll know.

Here are a few examples. The first was taken with a K-x, the rest with a K200D:

maybe you could rent it out?

It sounds like a pretty cool lens, and several of us might use it for a month each - then you'd get it back, hopefully intact! I for one hate to capitalize on another's misfortune, plus of course I'm too poor to pay the entire price
Just a thought..
