    I've been using the new Noktor 12mm 1.6. It's actually a very decent lens.

      there are some widenagle shots in there, if i remember correctly they are shot with the Nikkor 10.5mm.
      I also have an Peleng 8mm but that one is pretty ghetto.

        I have developed a modification for the Fujinon-TV 12.5mm/f1.4 that results in full coverage of the m4/3 sensor.
        Because of the complexity of the modification, I'll be offering two varieties of the modification; a standard version
        with 16:9 coverage for video, and a full sensor 4:3 coverage option.

        This mod is part of a range of mods I offer based around the Fujinon-TV line of lenses.

        You can see high res samples, and a user review and video by Gekopaca on my website: www.ekoecamera.com

          That looks really nice Bob. I'm actually looking at getting that lens atm. I know your post was from a few months ago, but are you still using it? If so what are your thoughts? How do you think it would cut with some FD's?

            Hi Matthew. Its a unique lens that has some great qualities. I only used it for 2 months for a feature and then it sat in my bag because at 12mm it's not really something I need all the time. I just sold it 2 weeks ago. Here's another scene with that lens I shot:

              I remember a shot in Gran Torino from Clint Eastwood, where he and an actress walk in front of a huge ship and you see this ship and other things of the harbor. It was very impressive and I think that this scene was definitely shot with a wide angle lens.
              As said at the beginning of this thread: You remember such shots with wide angle lenses in Hollywood films, because they are very rare.

                Clint Eastwood is a big fan of actual wide angle shots. I noticed a few in a Blood Work (2002) while watching the other day.
