Yeah I have. It seems to be a bit better with metering than with my K100. I've only taken a couple of crappy shots with it but, Overall very happy with both.

I love that lens with my DS. I can't see why it would not be equally pleasing. It does make a lousy lens for normal portrait shots though. I have yet to put it through its paces on my 10D. Apart from the fact that it will no doubt have majorly visible front focussing on a 10D - based on some peoples complaints (and how you would get it on a fisheye and visible too is beyond me but... ) and maybe diagonal banding when printed and horizontol banding when viewed on a monitor. But hey that's why we have our own set of standards, so we can lower them to adjust for our LBA and GBA afflictions.

Quick question, @ 17mm, do the pictures still have the fisheye effect or is it more wide angle? I'm thinking of picking one up too when I get my K10D.

thank you

It looks as if it would be a nice addition to my collection once my 10d arrives

fish right through the range, but it is definately more pronounced at 10 than at 17. When I got it I figured it would be one I could use now and then, and had always been a class I'd wanted for years. After using it for a bit I found more instances for potential use than I thought before owning it.

Yes it still has a less pronounced FE effect. From about 14mm to 17mm you can usually defish successfully using software such as PTLens.

I've found it is rectangular at 17mm on my K100D at least. I did a review with samples in the review section.
