Great responses guys. The DA 10-17mm fisheye works great on my DL (the cranky K10D doesn't focus well with it, guess the 50mm stays on the K10!!) I can't wait for the car show this summer, that fisheye should get some great car shots.

Anyway, I now have a lens that truly gives the freedom to experiment (and cost much less than a good macro lens).

One thing I found with the 12-24 and the K10 - if your subject is more than about 6-10 feet away focus doesn't really matter. Put the camera on manual focus and the lens set to infinity, even at f4 you'll probably get it all in focus. It won't work with a picture like the one you posted though. Now go out and have a great time! I'd love to justify buying one as I think a FE would be great fun.

Please Ira, don't post more pictures. I can't afford that lens right now.

Seriously, congrats to your purchase. Have fun!

Evening Ira, I think that you will really enjoy the lens. It is the one that has produced some of my best pictures. It is not as radical as everyone believes. Experiment around the house in terms of where to place the "bend" in the photo (especially at 10mm). You are really going to like using and playing around with it. You will really be surprised at how close you will need to get to things too....

... a whole new world....
