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.

I once had a Nikon 50mm f1.2 AI-S, but sold it when I planned to move to Canon.  I didn't know I could get an adapter for it.  It might have worked pretty well for some things.  Sadly, they now go for about double what I sold mine for.

Deja Foobar - A feeling of having made the same mistake before.

Just to tease you, I have the Nikkor 50mm 1.2 AIS and it's awesome with the 6D. And to the TS, dont worry about the tab behind some Nikkor lenses, the 6D and newer bodies can take them with no prob.
