Re: Samyang (and Bower, Rokinon, Opteka, etc.) "A" automatic aperture setti

The Pro-Optic from Adorama does have the "A" setting for Pentax; (even though the picture on their their web site shows a non-Pentax version). I bought mine from Adorama, and love it. It is a better projection (in my opinion) than the normal fish eye lenses, since it doesn't have as much distortion. (I don't like the fish eye effect of taking a picture of my dog with big nose and tiny feet).

This Pro-Optic is identical to the Samyang lens that gets good reviews on the web.

The lens is great fun, and useful for recording a wide field. I've also used this for 360 panoramas (stitched together on my computer).

It takes a while to get used to envisioning what a scene will look like, before you look through the camera, my brain wasn't used to seeing my feet at the same time as the tree branches overhead.
