Get one. Now!
It's lots of fun to play with, but also excellent for ultra wide landscape shots.

Thanks for the alert and a great site, Adam!

Why must I be tempted when I'm trying to save up for the 11-18!?

You need both!
Two totally different lenses with the fish eye being a much wider FoV.
You can't beat that deal.
I can attest that this lens is the best Fish Eye lens for the Pentax system.

Adam, there are a bunch of other B&H lens deals that are probably worth promoting, including the HD DFA 24-70 and HD DFA 50 both at $996, the DA 55-300 PLM for $346, and 3rd party lenses with big discounts like Sigma 17-50/2.8 at $369.

That's actually well above the average selling price (check the deal finder).

The rest are now posted in this week's roundup

This was the first lens I got (by a day or two) when I bought my K-100 many years ago. I was so jazzed that I got it for $320 after $100 rebate...

I eventually changed brands and replaced it with the Tokina equivalent.

Fun lens, fairly inexpensive.

Can't believe this lens is still on sale for this. I'm in the same mindset. The only thing keeping me from hoping on this is that I already have the Rokinon 8mm fisheye (which is at B&H for an amazing $199 as I type this, and if you want a fisheye to go with your 11-18....) and the DA 14 and DA 15, and DA* 16-50, and despite strong LBA desires for this one too, with all the overlap, and really really wanting the 11-18...

and DA 15
A while ago I thought I would replace both with the 10-17. Haven't done that still, and so far so good Replace DA 15 and Rokinon 8mm with DA 10-17? - PentaxForums.com

If only money was free, I'd go for it! A big part of how I landed with the Rokinon was from the lens comparison review here Rokinon 8mm vs. 10mm vs. Sigma 8-16mm vs. Pentax 10-17mm Ultra-wide Showdown Review - Introduction | PentaxForums.com Reviews, and how well the Rokinon did. I liked the way the Rokinon maintains more of the original shape of objects near the periphery - check the pictures of the lamp post towards the bottom of this page: Rokinon 8mm vs. 10mm vs. Sigma 8-16mm vs. Pentax 10-17mm Ultra-wide Showdown Review - Rectilinear vs Fisheye | PentaxForums.com Reviews And then in general, the colors, contrast and sharpness on the Rokinon seemed very nice, so I decided it would be a good fisheye companion. Then thinking the other end, the DA 15 is so nice for the combination of rendering and size, it would be hard to replace it with the zoom. And besides, if I don't keep telling myself stuff like this, I'll buy the 10-17, which will make justifying the 11-18 even harder.

I was waiting so long for a wide angle lens and had almost bitten the bullet on a Rokinon a couple of times. But this deal was too good to pass up! So I just got the lens! Thanks Adam.
