    Again, not actually an adapted lens, but it isn't offered as an option in the drop-down.

    I took a bunch of photos of the first sunrise of 2017. Here are few of my favorites from the largely-overlooked Rokinon 21mm f1.4

    I have the 16mm f/2.o like the 21mm f/1.4 a smoking sharp lens. I would buy the 21mm but I have the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4.

    How well is distortion controlled on the Rokinon 16mm?

    Almost none can't bring myself to buy the Fujifilm XF 16mm 1.4 the benefit vs price can't be justified IMHO. I got it on Amazon on a prime flash sale for $227.00 some image shot with the lens 2 month ago.

    Wow, those are fantastic. I've had my eye on the Rokinon 16 for awhile. The 12 is a wonderful lens, but it's too wide for some things. One of these days I really want the Fuji 10-24, but I can't ever seem to make the finances come together for it.

    The 16mm is what I call a BAHL (big ass heavy lens) it's made for a DSLR originally. they retro fit it with extension for it to work with mirrorless cameras. On the other hand your 21mm, the 12mm and the new 50mm f/1.2 ($419.00 at B&H) are made for mirrorless from start. the images you posted taken with the 21mm are all outstanding!
