Operating Manual for 35mm fisheye lens

I am contemplating purchasing a secondhand 35mm fisheye lens for use with my Pentax 67 camera.

The seller does not have the original box or operating manual.

Does anyone have a scan of the operating manual for the fisheye lens? If so, could you post a copy?

Thanks !

I don't think a manual is necessary, I have 7 lenses, what works for one works for all.

The fisheye lens has some unique features that make it unlike the other lenses in the series. Also, anyone with one of the leaf shutter lenses would want to have the manual due to their special features. For the other lenses, I agree. You don't really need a manual for most of the lenses.

The built in filters for the 35mm are most useful for black and white shooting. Any other type of filter needed, must be put at the rear of the lens. Be aware that you only get 180 degree field of view when at infinity. Close shots are only about 160 degrees. There is some edge of field softness with this lens and stopping down does not eliminate it.

There was no operating manual for the 6x7 35mm FE lens, the necessary info was included in the “Pentax 6x7/67 Interchangeable Lenses” booklet that came will all lenses. (Page 14 in the newer 67 booklet or page 11 in the older 6x7 booklet)
