Subject: [Leica] Re: Fish-eye on a Leica M

I routinely use the Leica 16mm Fisheye-Elmarit R on my M's
via the Cameraquest R->M adapter.  Focus is easy (just keep
it always at 3m).

Very good lens, but you have to use it at f8 or f11 for corner
to corner super-sharp images.  You can get away with f5.6, but
anything wider open and the corners turn to mush.

Regds,
