Test pictures with my Tokina 16mm 1.6 TV lens

I recently bought a Tokina TV lens off ebay. It needed some adjustments to fit in the adapter but now it focuses to infinity (and beyond).

The aperture is fixed and with 1.6 it is not the greatest lens for out door pictures in the bright midday sun.

Here are some first pictures I took with it. It has quite some vignetting so I cropped the pictures to a square format.

Quality isn't great but it has a nice effect

If this thing had a variable aperture to control DOF it would be great!

Yes, that is a downside of this lens, but I'm really starting to like it
