16mm 2.8, close ups and distortion
3

Just goofing around this morning.  The dog jumped in my lap, so I shot a couple of pictures of her with the 16mm @ 2.8 and close up, like 7 or 8 inches.  M mode, 1/40.  Actually quite pleased with the results.  For dramatic closeups or to emphasize distortion and non-linear optical effects, this little lens will be pretty fun to use.  Note, at 2.8, if you are really close to focus point, you get distinct blur.  It is really sharp too, wide open.  Posted large files so you can zoom in if you want to check them out.

All in all, a fun little lens.  No complaints about the IQ for the price, that's for sure.
