Plus it probably didn't hurt that many other candidates have already been eliminated!

I'm too late. I would have guessed it from the start.

That could be your 16-50 at it's wide end @f/3.5 or 4.

Well, it is a rectilinear lens, loosely speaking. I don't believe "moustache lens" is a recognized terminology (yet).

You are both close with the FL (this time! )

As of today, my 16-50 is no longer with me. She serves another man now... :..( But my lonely nights are kept warm by one FA*28-70 and a winsome wench called DA*50-135mm is on her way!

Well I stand by my original guess, somewhere around 16mm @f3.5 or 4. I don't see any unusual characteristics in the rendering (slight barrel distortions being quite common at this FL). I see a couple more lenses in your profile that fit the bill, but I'll let the other lazy guessers have their turn :P

Maybe the 100% crop provides a clue...



Don't think I've seen this sort of sharpness from the DA* 16-50mm at 16mm...

Dan,
What if DA15/21 (I've got DA15 and it appears to be too wide for this shot so I mainly hope for DA21) say at f5.6?

It could be the K 15mm AL, but not wide open.

Well you are all close enough and clearly my "moustache" hint didn't really work. So I will give it away.

It's the (in)famous ugly duckling Samyang 14/2.8 (at f5.6).

That's some front element! How far was his finger away from it anyway?

Well, let's just say it was good that I had the lens-cleaning microfibre cloth handy

(kidding but nearly not!)

PS I should note that the pic of the lens is by Stephane Pironon.
