Re: Well...

Yeah, the 16mm gets a bad rap but there are some QC issues.  I got it at a good price with my 5N kit and use it mostly with the WAC and sometimes with the FEC.  With EV +1 and stepping down it works nice, especially for the price.

Also, I recall a similar post by this OP that had nearly the same response by many DPR regulars.

Some come and go and the rest of us just carry on.
