    I read the 16mm was soft, is that the case or I'd it sharp?

    It's reasonable in the center, and gets weak quickly in the edges unless stopped down. But it is compact. It might depend on what you are looking to do (center subjects or off-center).

    Hey, better than any review, are the examples we have on this thread... If you like these photos it's because the lens suits you!

    Thanks for that Delhaye I have just ordered a 16mm I twiddled my thumbs over the decision and found the price had gone up by £10 by the time I ordered..and that was in the space of 24hours!

    Streetshooter, were those shot with the high contrast black and white in camera, or did you turn them black and white in post?

    Our family went to visit the Boston Public Garden and accidentally walked into the Boston Freedom Rally, about 30-50,000 people gathered to rally for marijuana law reform.





    Some interesting characters there!
