which adapter do you use with the 16mm?

One cheap option is a Russian Jupiter or Industar in L/M39 mount - it's one of the smallest adapter sizes. Industar build quality can be hit and miss, but good copies can be very good. My Industar-61 55mm 2.8 ($12 + $15 adapter) is a bit clunky to focus (not a re-lubricating issue as some have - some parts are a poor fit), but can take gorgeous photos:
