SMC Takumar 17mm fisheye VS Minolta Rokkor 16mm fisheye lens

That’s all great info. The Minolta review was packed full of info. I will have a look at flicker too.
I have several Takumar lenses but no Pentax cameras. I will be using the fisheye lens on mirrorless cameras - an Olympus EM1 Mark iii but mostly on a full frame Leica SL.

The Minolta fisheye could be my first Minolta lens. I like the fact that it is a little faster and wider than the Takumar and the Minoltas were also made for Leica R so it seems appropriate for an SL as a nod to the historical relationship. The Minolta is a heavy lens I guess that is the only downside according to the review.

If I do get the lens I will post some pictures here, if that’s appropriate. It would be fun to do a side by side comparison with the Takumar if I ever get my hands on one.

Hello,
I am looking for a fisheye lens and I am considering the SMC Takumar 17mm f4 vs the Minolta Rokkor 16mm f2.8 lens.
I have searched the web but I can't seem to find a comparison between the two lenses. There is not as much info on the Minolta Rocker 16mm lens either. There are a few reviews that say it's a nice lens but no references to other lenses.

If anyone here has some experience with the two lenses I would love to hear from you.
Thanks
Karen
