Hey guys, I'm heading to Grand Cayman shortly and I want to pick up a wide angle lens to go along with my kit lens and my 80-200. I searched ebay for "Pentax wide angle" and got plenty to choose from. I could use a little help with what to look for and what to stay away from. I want something decent but don't want to break the bank either. Is under $100 asking too much? I have a Samsung GX-10 (K10D)

About the only wide-angle lens in your price range is the Zenitar 16mm.

Thanks guys, looks like the Zenitar 16 is my lens!

you'll probably have to get it on ebay

Where to buy and how ? Start here like majority of Pentax users have been doing

KEH appear to have a used one and I've seen a couple for sale in the USA, including on eBay.

Hmm... my reply might be a little late but just in case someone asks the same question in the future, there is also Tokina 17mm/f3.5 (manual focus, manual aperture) which is quite sharp but not good with flare control. I got my copy just a little over $100 mark.
