It's a simple make-over of the older SMC DA version. It looks nicer (more modern) and has different coatings but is otherwise the same.

Hardly the same. It now works better with the K-1 in FF mode. Plus the hood is removable.

Numerous examples on the net with Canikon FF's that have either been shaved or supplied modified by Tokina.

A world's first? See my "shaved" DA10-17!

Looks good for FF users - a nice and tidy circular fisheye at 10mm. Might look at picking one up if the prices are right.

i did not find it "fishy eye" enough prefer the Samyang 8mm but the Pentax may be a lot different on K1 to my K3ii
K3 II and the odd lens or 2
