Has anyone used this on the K-1? Is the entire image circle captured on the full frame sensor?

This is an APS-C only lens, so coverage beyond that is quite limited. Here's an example:

Thanks, Adam. The example you provided answers my question. The image circle is *almost* completely captured on the frame, with some clipping along the top and bottom of the frame, as I suspected. It's a cool effect and I'm sorely tempted to jump on this bargain. It looks to be a fine APS-C fisheye (for my wife's K-5iis) and a neat specialty lens if used on my K-1 in FF mode.

There are two versions, the earlier one has a permanent fixed hood. The newer has a removable hood. Some people shave the hoods off to get the circle on FF.

Shaved or original Samyang 8mm mounted on a full-frame Canon 5D or 1D - Spherical Panorama - Panoramafotography - 360° Panorama - 3D Object Photography

It's a great lens, stop down to 4 or 4.5. The stereographic projection used results in less distortion along the edges than other fisheye designs!

Why shave a cropped-frame fisheye lens instead of buying a full-frame one? - Photography Stack Exchange
