My 16mm f/2.8 is so good I could almost earn a living with it and no other lens. But then, it was I think the third 16mm f/2.8 I owned and either the fourth of fifth I had used including prototypes.

Pako - the adaptors just end up imaged into the shot, as you would expect, and there is nothing to be gained.

On its own with baffle removed, the lens is OK for a 24mm square or a 1.3 factor image, using right to the corners is a bit difficult. Any lens profile to correct it immediately loses the benefit of the angle.

I've been corresponding about the 20mm and that also really won't manage full frame, but comes so close and has such good imaging quality you could consider it fully useful on say a 30 megapixel 10 x 8 shape format. It's certainly something I am thinking about, as this lens does also accept the UW and Fish converters.
