Re: why has the 16mm f2.8 got such a bad rep?

It's got a bad rep because there are quality control issues (I tried three copies, and they were all different in the corners & edges) and because the color/contrast are lacking relative to other (admittedly more expensive) lenses. However that's not to say that you can't take good pictures with it...
