Great IQ but MF only. Should not be a problem.

Hi,

I'm in the look for a wide or ultra-wide lens for APS-C (K-5).

At this point I don't have anything wider than the 18-55 kit zoom and a M28/2.8 prime.

I looked at reviews and samples of the 10-17mm fisheye - nice perspectives, FOV and versatility but I'm afraid of getting quickly tired of the distortion.

I also looked at the Sigma 10-20 f3.5. A bit expensive.

Any recommendation or another lens I should consider?

I'd like to keep the price in the bracket USD500 +/- 1EV.

Thanks,

Nick
