Tokina RMC 17mm 3.5 on K-1 - bokeh-test

Got this lens a while back because I also want an UWA for the K-1. It's an older lens, and build is very similar to Pentax-M lenses: compact and very solid, with a nice feeling focus-ring with just the right resistance, and nice aperture-clicks.

The min. focus distance of 25cm sounds bad, but this is measured from the sensor, so in practice, it's about 15cm from the front element.

Due to the time left before dark, I rushed and did not take care to precisely focus.

1st image is a crop of about 40% of the image, the 2nd a crop to 16:9. Both are wide open.

The bokeh can be smooth....

...or harsh
