The Pentax smc P-DA Fish-Eye 10-17mm ED (IF) lens was designed exclusively for use with digital SLRs, and combines full-frame fisheye (180° diagonal angle of view at a focal length of 10mm) to super wide-angle performance in a single unit.

This lens makes it possible to capture images with an expanded perspective including creative deformation of subjects and sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame.

Note: Not suitable for 35mm film SLR cameras.

Ultra Wide Angle
This lens enables the shooting of fisheye images with a 180-degree angle of view and a focal length of 10mm. Furthermore, the lens offers super wide-angle performance that allows photographer to make use of dramatic changes in angle of view resulting from slight changes in focal length.
Equivalent focal length to 15mm-26mm in the 35mm format with *ist DSLRs.
High Optical Performance
Employing ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, this lens effectively compensates to overcome chromatic aberration throughout the image. And with improved optical architecture and a ghost-free lens coating, ghosting and flare are suppressed to produce clear, high-quality images more of the time.
Exclusive Digital Design
The image circle of the lens has been created to match the smaller image recording area of the *istD-series. This ensures precise optical performance ideally suited to the camera's digital imaging characteristics.
SP Coating
SP (Super Protective) coating made of a special fluoride compound has been applied to the front surface of the new lens through the use of a unique evaporation process. As a result, the lens offers excellent water- and oil-repellant performance and makes for easier cleaning should the lens be accidentally smeared with fingerprints or cosmetics.
Super Macro
An ingenious internal focus system allows photographers to focus from as close as approx. 1" (approx. 2.5 cm), giving them the power to fill the whole frame with surprisingly small subjects.
Quick-Shift Focus System
The Quick-Shift Focus System allows to instantly shift to manual focus once the subject is captured by AF.
Durable metallic lens mount.
Exclusive lens cap constructed from high-quality aluminum.

    My 1st Wide Eye Lens

    By Michael

    from Placerville, California

    Comments about Pentax SMCP-DA 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED Autofocus Lens:

    Right on the money. Bravo. I love it. My shots are just as good as the pros. Only issue here is it isn't fast in going to the next shot. I compensate by giving it a second per shot instead of continuous. Works excellent this way!

      Comments about Pentax SMCP-DA 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED Autofocus Lens:

      I got this lens for the pleasure of playing around with fisheye shots--and that pleasure has been fully realized. Even more, though, I really like the quality of the lens, the sharpness and good color definition I get when using it. The auto focus is extremely fast and responsive as well. Also, the lens feels solid and well-built without being bulky, which is great when you want to put it in your backpack and carry it with you to work. (And the lens cap is excellent--tight enough to stay on in a bag but not so tight it's hard to take off.)It's very versatile, too--I was able to take close-up shots of a beetle that were detailed enough to let me identify it, and of course I've been able to take interesting landscape shots as well as photos of plants, autumn leaves, and the last flowers of the season. (And my dog.)I've only had this lens for two weeks, but I've taken 300 or so photos with it, and I'm very impressed with its performance and overall quality. (It's also, as I said, just a ton of fun to play around with.)

          Very easy to get used to fish eye effect. Can get some wild shots at 10-14mm. Usefull as a normal wide
          angle at 15-17mm setting. Very good contrast and color. Good weight on K511S. Very close focusing for
          almost macro shots. Very good for landscapes,if you
          watch the horizon.

            Hello, to be honest I'm French and I came to the USA a few days. I decide to buy this lens not on a whim but I thought for a long time. So I price my creative mind to tell you that this fish-eye is exactly for you. Whether you want to take landscapes, buildings, people. You will be conquered your first images.

            I counsel you, it's light takes up little space. It is flexible in use.

            So if you have a lot of imagination. This lens you expect.

            My english is not perfect i'm sorry.

              Honestly, I've been thinking about this lens for years. I was torn between the wide field-of-view and worried that I would get bored of the fisheye effect. Well, I didn't. This is a fun lens and very versatile because it zooms unlike most fisheye lenses. Softer in the corners than I would like but generally sharp

                Unique lens, for those that crave and yearn for the widest angle possible. Distortion is a plus. Quirky, not akin to those who purchase Pentax anyways. The best pictures of this lens I have yet to take.

                              This lens easily surpassed my expectations. Images are very clear with some chromatic abberation toward the edges; but with any ultra-wide angle/fisheye lens, there is going to be that chromatic abberation. The lens feels very solid and zooms and focuses very smoothly. I would definitely by this lens over any other fisheye lens, even if this one costs twice as much.
                              Also, this lens takes superb macro shots.

                                I have been looking at this lens for a while and it was definitely the right step to buy it. I have only had the chance to play with it for a short period of time but it was everything I was hoping for. Outdoors it can provide a vast panoramic view and in close country it allows you to feel like you stepped right into your pictures. For portraits, it gives you clear sharp image and can provide various amounts of distortion around the edges, framing your subject with great effect. Highly recommended and at a great price.

                                Amazing piece of glass...

                                I had no idea how much fun a lens like this was. - I purchased during my NYC trip from Aus and produced some amazing city photos.

                                The usual great Pentax quality pushed me to purchase this one over the Sigma. But all in all it just produced a better picture.

                                Ultrawide is also a bonus.

                                  Comments about Pentax SMCP-DA 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED Autofocus Lens:

                                  Have used this for about a month and have no complaints. Very light, has a good feel, strong fish-eye at 10mm but mild at 17mm. Have gotten some great wide angle pictures never achievable before with my other lenses. Macro feature works well letting you get very close to the object if needed and not having to zoom way in. Haven't noticed the fringing mentioned in the reviews yet. Very pleased with this lens. Using on my Pentax K7.

                                      This is a great lens for getting funky party shots and neat landscape photos. Being a fish-eye, images show a lot of distortion, but that's the point.

                                      A great addition to any pentax format lens collection. Very high quality shots with great colours and sharpness. Does work as a wide angle for landscape shots at a distance but a little distortion is found on closer objects, even at 17mm. Full fish eye (10mm) shots are really cool, will have lots of fun with this lens...

                                        Used the lens recently on a shoot in Yellostone National Park under varied atmospheric conditions. Panoramas were clear and required minimal post production editing
