@LennyBloke

Now i've saw also yours shots on flickr with 15-30
...very beautiful !!!

The 16mm is fish-eye and obviously it's not in the same league of rectilinear&zoom 15-30 ...

Have you applied defishing in PP for 16mm shots?

I did experiment a little with de-fishing (without much success) but as you say the 16 is a fish-eye so I tended to just treat it as such - there aren't so many situations where it is as useful as a rectilinear, so just look for the shots where you think it might work and you'll be pleasantly surprised

If you're looking for neat old fisheyes, don't forget about the SMC Takumar 17/4. I find this quite nice on my K-1

Second vote for this lens too (as well as the K17) but I personally prefer the A16
