Think I might have got the last one in stock - arrived yesterday morning - big(ish), heavy(ish), well balanced on the K1, IQ appears to be as good as reviews and others comments suggest...

Happy shooting John.
I really like the 15-30mm on the K1,
The 2 just seem really well matched.
Nice shots, and nice red check shirt 👍🏻👍🏻

Sorry Stuart - it's a bit of a monster but can really deliver. The ultra-wide end does make you see things quite differently, very few shots suit the full frame at 15mm (so far) but if you're happy cropping and messing around with the perspective a little in PP it can be quite rewarding

Cheers Derek - early days, the biggest downside is how much I can take out in the small camera bag, I usually take the K1 and 3 lenses, but today just the 15-30 was all I was comfortable with. Not sure this is going to be a general walkaround lens, but I'm looking forward to some landscape time with it
Struggled to avoid the reflection, just ended up making it as inconspicuous as I could

Well I was quite pleased that I managed to get over the weekend without buying it.
Just clicked the link and it's still at the same price

I'm not a great fan of tea.

Thing is I do very very little wide stuff to be honest but I quite fancy a go at some astro stuff as both bodies have the astrotracer in. I may just grab a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 for that though.
