Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This is a primitive 8mm f/3.5 circular 180° fish-eye lens. This Peleng lens is produced at the Belomo optical factory in Minsk, Belarus, and it took 2 months to arrive from a factory order. It has the look and feel of used military equipment.

I looked online, and the manufacturer proudly claims to be “the leading producer among former USSR countries of optical systems for armoured vehicles”

The colors come from the multicoated anti-reflection optics.
