    Hi All,

    I have just ordered a Peleng 8/3.5 Fish-Eye from the nice
    man at East Wave products. According to Dmitry, there is
    not a problem with mirror/lens interaction on a Nikon D70.
    Does anyone have direct experience with this? I've seen
    web sites that go both ways. In all, I expect to use the
    lens on one or more of the following bodies:

    Nikon D70
    Nikon F90X
    Pentax MZM
    Pentax P30T
    Pentax H2 (M42)

    Any ideas which, if any of these, would have problems
    with the mirror hitting the back of the lens?

    Works fine on my E-300 after reading people saying it will hit the mirror. I
    have to think the people who say this, have never used one of these and are
    thinking about that OLD 8mm nikon fisheye that required MLU.

    FWIW, I use that lens with:

    Pentax 1st*DS and
    Pentax MZ-50

    both of which fit and interact perfectly.

    Just make sure your feet are out of the shot!
