Here is a link to some photos taken with the Zenitar 16mm. I started with the Tamron 28-75 but quickly went to the Zenitar. Most were shot at F8.
Enjoy.

Seems 16mm Zenitar is a very nice lens.

I would be curious to know if this Zenitar clears the 5D mirror.

I often see it on Ebay but until now never tried to buy one because i really don't know what to do with a fisheye lens. Yet, some of the most amazing pictures I have seen recently, including these yours pictures of the cars, were done with the Zenitar or the Peleng.

Here is a link to an article regarding clearance problems. My Zenitar came with an EOS adaptor attached. Discussion is near bottom of article.
Hope this helps.

Some great pics, Bob! Like the 1964(?) Impala shot, nice detail. Cool

Great shots, bob, and your Zenitar seems to be justified very good. I rarely have seen so sharp pictures with this lens.

Thank you for your comments.
I did have to do a "little" adjustment to get the focus better.
This lens performs well for street activities. Just set at F8/infinity then point and shoot.
Here is a link to the article discussing how to adjust the focus. Easy but takes a little time.

What a useful link, Bob! Thanks a lot!

My Zenitar does not seem to have this problem, still you never know...
