I just acquired a used D1 body and I'm loving it (slightly overwhelmed by the learning curve, but loving it anyway!). I've been looking at various wide angle options because of the focal length multiplier effect (I love my 20mm MF Nikkkor, but it's not really wide on the D1). Has anyone used the 16mm Nikkor with a D1? What is the effect like? It's hard to judge what will happen with this lens' effective coverage, given its 180 degree angle on 35mm; in my mind the 16mm doesn't translate x1.5 in the same way that 14mm would (becoming 21mm). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
