Hi Carsten,

I had a 16mm for awhile and it works fine, but after a while you become
tired of the 16mm full frame curved look.

For what it's worth, save your money and go to 15mm and you'll never look
at any other "wide angle" again. It's a superb lens.

Quite frankly the 15mm gives you an image that no other photographer can
shoot, unless they have a 15mm of Leica quality. If one wants to give their
clients or just they're own work a look of something different, you can't
go wrong with the 15mm.
