Sony 16mm f2.8 Fisheye Lens - SAL-16F28

 

Crisp images in the unique perspective that only a fisheye lens can provide. A superb fisheye lens with a look all its own -- a fascinating perspective on landscapes, cities, crowds and special events. With a 180° angle of view and extraordinary...

With exaggerated perspective and intriguing visual distortion, this fisheye lens brings images closer to the focal plane for a view beyond the ability of human eye

One I Just Had to Have

 

In my old Minolta MC/MD days, I had the Minolta incarnation of this lens and loved it. Granted in many ways it's a creative toy sort of lens, but I still find myself using it even at inappropriate times ("Hang on. Just let me grab a quick shot of this...

There is no substitute. Period

Worth the money.

 

I use this lens with my A900 and it works perfectly. Fantastic shots possilbe. Rapid focus. Decent corner quality. Very hard not to get your fingers and feet into the picture. Hilareous close ups. Once you've run the image through curvature correction...

Superb lens all around

Sony's Fisheye

 

This is a super high quality lens. But unless you have one of Sony's high end DSLR camera"s you won't get the true fisheye look that you want. It will only be a 110 degree picture. Not the full 180 that a fisheye should be. I looked on line at the Sony...

Super high quality

It only works properly on a full frame size dslr

Good Wide Angle

 

This lens is expensive, but, is well worth the price. I bought it for my A380, but have also used it on my old A100.

Good Build Quality

Picky Focus

Camera returns error to turn OFF, then ON again.

 

When the camera is first turned ON, or awakes from sleep, the first photo will fail, returning a camera error with this battery. You must turn the camera OFF, then ON again. Extremely annoying. I suspect that it can't deliver enough current to truly...

Worst Service Ever !!!!!

 

I have been a Sony customer for years now but this has been a nightmare. I originally purchased a refurbished Sony NEX7 with the SEL18155 kit lens, the SEL50F18 lens, and lastly the SEL16F28 lens. Long story short my items arrived quickly but i was...
