    Pentax 3.2mm f/5.6 reviews

    3.2mm f/5.6 Fish Eye Lens for Q Series Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Toy Lacking any distance scale, it is impossible to focus this lens in any meaningful fashion. In frustration, I actually laid out three meter sticks to see whether it was possible to get anything in focus with this lens; shooting at each of the little marks, I then compared the images and determined that absolutely nothing was within an acceptable focus.I have been using Pentax equipment for nearly forty years, and I have never seen anything from Pentax that approaches the dreadfully poor quality of this lens. It is trash. Toy fisheye effect attachments render better images than this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fun accessory for the Q This is my first Fish-Eye lens and for $ it's a hoot to use on the Q. Focus is smooth and pretty easy as the DoF is really deep on this lens. It's light weight, easy to adjust, and does about 160 degrees. Distortion is typical of Fish-Eye lenses from those pictures I have reviewed by others. Image quality is good and I've gotten some of my most creative photos with it and the Q in B&W mode.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun, but not impressive This is more of a toy lens than a very sharp one. It renders good detail for objects close to the lens, but the image quality fades quickly for anything 5 feet or more away. The manual focus is no big deal due to the huge DOF with the Q. Nothing wrong with the lens, just don't expcet the image quality of the 01 or 02 lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manual focus fun! This lens is more fun than barrel of monkeys. Manual focus allows the user to set their own focal point. Focus close for blurred background, focus far for great depth of field. I love this lens, no Q kit is complete without one. I use this lens on my Q7 and my Q10 quite often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little lens This lens makes for a perfect addition to my daughter's Q10 camera. I still am amazed by the quality of this lens. I searched high and low only to come back to B&H for the best price and we all know the service. Thanks again for another great product at an exceptional price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it This is a fun little lens that's easy to switch and is small to have around in your camera bag.I recently was in a small plane and the few photos I took were pretty cool for that 'curvature of the Earth' effect.
