Gonna bump this thread and see if anybody has done this. I'm about to order this lens next week when I pick up the 6D. I have looked at the fotodiox adapter but I was wondering if anybody has made their own DIY holder for this lens

Yes I have done it, a Kood filter holder and a rubber seal used on a toilet pan connector.
You only need the rubber seal, the dia. of the lens hood is 90mm the rubber seal fits and then the filter holder slides over.

I dont know if this is the same in the USA, but its what we use in the UK. As these are <£5, you dont need to find a used one ! ;-)a

I will get some photos later

I went ahead and got the fotodiox adapter for the 16-28. Its a bit cumbersome, but I love it. This lens is amazing, I use it mostly for astrophotography, but during the day around f11 its the sharpest lens I own.

I couldn't be happier with this lens; lens flare and all. I'll start to post as soon as I resize some images.

Spent most of the day with this lens. This is a bed and breakfast type place in Ashe County NC. This room is basically a renovated attic. Im tired, so this is SOC.

I need to re-process this one but I can't believe how much you can fit in the frame from only 12 inches away.

i can tell you that at 16mm it is pretty terrible. i did some quick tests right after i bought the lens and to be honest, i don't think i even imported them into my library. I'll try to take a look in a bit and see what i have.

if you want to go really wide, you should look into the Samyang / Rokinon 14mm

edit: i would like to revise my answer. :D After thinking about it (couldn't quickly find the test images) my issue was with the moon which i placed in a far corner. I don't think it was coma so much as just plain old distortion that bothered me about the image. here is a great example of an astro shot.
