    Comments about Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Pentax K:

    I bought this for use at a wedding but also because I thought a real fisheye would be cool. You can't beat the kind of distortion a lens like this produces, and I expect to have a lot of fun with it. Because of the very short focal length, I almost don't need to focus it, which is good because it does not autofocus. One thing to remember when you put it on the camera is to set the camera to manual focus. Otherwise, the camera may refuse from time to time to release the shutter.

          Comments about Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Pentax K:

          I´m happy with the fact that the aperture is set automatically in all camera modes, , I set the focus for 2 feet and all is well.
          If I change to a future Pentax with a full frame, it will still work as a circular fisheye, by detaching the lens hood. Forward compatible if you will. Photographs are great as well.
          You must set the ¨mm¨on the camera for the shake reduction to work well. ;this is easy as the camera K5 prompts you every time you out this lens on
