Just thinking my Pentax D FA 100mm doesn't see the light of day very often and it's rarely used so looking to do a trade with someone? It's boxed as new with the original Pentax pouch, instructions, European warrenty booklets etc.
The box is rather though but the lens is mint which is the main thing. Complete with original front and rear caps as well as the original lens hood. Optics are clear and bright as they should be and this lens has the aperture ring so can be used on older manual cameras as well.

I'm looking for a super wide angle lens. I don't mind if it's Pentax, Sigma or Tamron so what have you got ?!

Do you really need to? What is the widest you have at the moment?

16mm is the widest but I'm doing more and more landscapes and also with the weddings I really fancy having something uber wide angle for interior shots, dance floor images as well as funky fun portraits etc for weddings or the home portraits I do

Just remember that you can't really use the 20% or so on the left and right edges to shoot people at 10mm. Unless you want them looking really fat Smile

Yeah, fatten them up lol !!

Was thinking about portraits more at the 12-14mm range !

10mm will be very handy for interiors etc Wink

Is it worth hiring one to test that it will do what you want, it would be a real shame to lose the 100 macro and then find that your 16mm was what you wanted in the first place judging from Tim's comment?

Would seriously think about a fisheye for weddings Gareth, might be more useful than you think! Very Happy

Interesting! I like the idea! Thinking about it I remember going back a while someone posted on PU some wedding dance floor images with a fisheye and it looked really good.

I may have done a deal with someone I know who runs a camera shop with this 100mm and some cash for a K5 so going in on Saturday to thrash out a potential deal!

If it goes ahead I'll hang fire on the 10-20mm but it's something I'm wanting as soon as I have the funds Wink

Now fisheyes, manual focus fisheyes are reasonable cheap and I doubt there is much to do in terms of focusing, which'll be handy as its gonna be dark! Laughing

Laughing I didn't thank Danny's shots were that bad myself Laughing Twisted Evil

You might have been thinking of Karmanzello? (I'm sure I've spelt that wrong). He posted a couple of fisheye wedding photos on PU as well at some point.
