Hi all,

can anyone recommend a good wide angle lens arround 16mm? I had a close look at a Zenitar 16mm. Does anyone know about the performance on stars?

Thanx
Tom

Tom,

This was shotwith the Zenitar 16mm and a canon Ellan IIe:

I really like the lens with my D60, I need it due to the 1.6x multiplication factor due to the APS sized chip. I am told that stopping down the lens a bit would have cleaned up some of the coma seen in the picture.
