[SOLD] Pentax 10-17mm Fisheye - excellent condition

Price: $345 - includes shipping+insurance within US. Will consider shipping worldwide - anywhere else shipping costs must be determined. Insurance is mandatory and part of the base price. PayPal only please...

Reason for sale: not used, and I need to offset costs of the competition! It's in excellent condition, but I don't really use it. Perhaps 50-100 shots put through it. I have the DA 12-24 instead, and it's used often! Includes pouch and original box.

If you truly need images of the lens, let me know and I'll take some. Sample shot available if needed - no issues - it's incredibly sharp!

I can confirm that this is a delightful lens, having recently bought one and used it at places like the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and the Petrified Forest. Very sharp, great colour rendition, and the zoom makes it much more practical than a prime fish-eye.

Getting the horizon somewhere around the middle of the frame also removes most of the obvious distortions associated with a fish-eye, while full-blown creativity is possible by just changing angles. Highly recommended - I'm glad I bought it (for more than this very good price!)

ITEM IS SOLD... I had two interested buyers in the US, but neither has followed through, so I am selling to someone I know from a previous transaction...
