Picked up a Zenitar 16mm f2.8 and it's quite impressive for what it does. A bit fiddly with a sticky aperture ring, but for the first few images around a car dealership, while the oil was being changed in the tin box on wheels, have remarkably low aberration for a sub $200 lens.

The Zenitar was on my radar, but I knocked it off after reading Ken Rockwell's review of it.

Looks like your experience with it doesn't match his.
