HD Pentax-DA Fisheye 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED lens officially announced


The rumored HD Pentax-DA Fisheye 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED lens is now officially announced (the previously reported July 26th date was for the release/shipping):

“The development of this new zoom lens was based on smc PENTAX-DA FISH-EYE10-17mmF3.5-4.5ED, while conducting a thorough review of lens coatings. The high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating has been applied to the optical elements for high-contrast images with edge-to-edge sharpness and free of flare and ghost images. The exterior has been totally redesigned to match the design of the latest PENTAX K-mount digital SLR models, and also to make its lens hood removable. When mounted on a PENTAX K-1 or PENTAX K-1 Mark II camera body, the photographer can remove the lens hood to produce nearly circular fish-eye images.”

Sample photos can be found here. Pre-orders should be open soon at Adorama and B&H (don’t get confused with the old Pentax HD DA Fisheye 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED lens version).
