Do I need a zenitar 16mm?
Jan 27, 2007

I have long wanted to get a wide angle, but could never decide which lens to get for my film camera. Now that I am transitioning to digital, and have some money saved up, I'm looking at purchasing the pentax 12-24mm, which I think is a nice range.

I know many people think highly of the zenitar 16mm, particularly considering its low cost. Is there much utility in having this lens if someone already has this range in another lens? I know the wider FOV on film would be nice, but I plan on using digital almost exclusively.

Thanks for your thoughts.
