Say goodbye to the Pentax 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 fisheye lens and hello to the HD-Pentax DA fisheye 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 ED. Ricoh has announced refreshed version of its affordable fisheye zoom for APS-C K-mount cameras.

When mounted on an APS-C body, it provides an equivalent focal range of 15-25.5mm, and boasts a 180-degree field of view at its wide end. The main differences to the lens include the application of the multi-layered HD coatings we see as standard on modern Pentax lenses. These, according to Ricoh, will greatly reduce flare and ghosting in order to produce impeccably sharp, high-contrast images.
