Fun Lens


from Charlotte, NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Fun lens. Compact and light but feels sturdy. Sharp, particulalry when stopped down a little. 180o fiels of view makes for some interesting results. The "A" setting on my Pentax variant makes it easy to use. Interacts perfectly with my K5-II.

Shopper  Hi will this lenz work well indoors taking pictures of rooms? will i need lighting? any other info would be be appreciated
Andrew R  This lens has a 180° angle of view and might be useful for interior photographs, however images captured using this lens will be quite distorted. Lighting would be dependent on the environment your photographing in. Some scenarios may require additional lighting.
